First of all I love the 357 magnum. It is my favorite round ever created.
That said I dont buy in to those numbers. I love the 357 magnum but I would not feel out gunned with a 10mm or a 45 acp or a357 sig or any other common hand gun.
shot placement is infinantly more important than caliber or energy.
Energy, Taylor TKO, Momentum and 1 shot stops are all just myths and numbers. Shot placement is where its at. As my Signature says "Id rather be shot with a 50BMG to the foot than a 22 short to the base of the skull.
Shot placement is everything! I would rather take a round of 50BMG to the foot than a 22short to the base of the skull.
all 26 of my guns are 45/70 govt, 357 mag, 22 or 12 ga... I believe in keeping it simple. Wish my wife did as well...
