Basically when it comes down to it, what snub are you talking about.
One is a 640 Pro and one is a 13, both 357 Mags and both are steel snubbies ( the 686does not count).

My version is an aluminum or scandium frame with a 2-finger grip that can fit in my pocket.
That is a self imposed limit, I do not pocket carry (except coat pocket).
If I put big grips on it, it would negate it's use.
Bottom line, what snub are we talking about? Frame size, barrel size, frame material and grip size/material makes a big difference in it's shootability and felt recoil.
Like everything else with handguns it is a compromise. I had the ScTi 357, it went back to S&W 2 times to have the frame replaced ( I shoot my guns), now I just have steel revolvers because they hold up to lots of shooting full power loads. I should have my new snubby tomorrow, 629 PC and i plan on using 180 JHP's as my carry load.

My rifle and pistol are tools, I am the weapon.
