A lot of these caliber wars talk fps, energy, etc. But they leave out bullet design. Look on YouTube TN outdoors does a lot of well done testing. If you notice Speer gold dots in 357 will clock in at 9mm +p ranges out of a three inch barrel. However, they expand to 0.75, whereas a 9mm is lucky to pull 0.6ish on the expansion. Revolvers are not restricted by bullet shape to feed like an automatic. The trade off is you get 1/3rd the capacity. That is why law enforcement has gone to automatics.
