I would put 357, 44 spl and 45 colt all in the same class; good enough for neck and lung shots but iffy for shoulder shots.
Holy Crapola! That is the most bodaciously incorrect statement I've seen in some time. My 44 Special Ruger, with Rem 240SP under 17gr of 2400, chronographs 1191. My 45 Colt Ruger, with 275LFN under 10gr of Unique, chronographs 1057. The 45 load blows through 8" Pine trees at 50 yards. Also, Wild Bill said it right on the 357.
