Revolver ammunition designed for revolvers is equal to, or superior, in performance to auto cartridges adapted to revolvers.
Very true, although 9mm was once promoted as a good way to essentially split the (fairly wide) power gap between .38Spl+P and full-power .357Mag, without as much recoil and muzzle flash as the latter.

OTOH the introduction of commercial "Low Recoil" or "Short Barrel" .357Mag loads has largely addressed this issue in recent years.
