Go ahead and google the Paco article, No doubt loaded to even just the somewhat less powerful Marlin level, the 45 is more powerful by a margin similar to the 357 compared to the 44. I will give the 357 higher marks, though, for slightly longer distance shooting accuracy. The short, fat bullets drop quickly. I prefer the 45 for its quiet, but 357 can kill well with a carbine as well. Get what you want. My 24 inch gun is a range toy. The 20 inch gun does what a pistol cartridge should do. Its easy to hit the target off hand, and carry is much easier. I will also say I much prefer the Marlin action.
