Typically (lots of exceptions) a 357 magnum will penetrate better than a 45 but a 45 will knock the plate around better than the 357. Both are great for self defense!

Kind of like. 30-06 vs a 45-70
Shot placement is everything! I would rather take a round of 50BMG to the foot than a 22short to the base of the skull.

all 26 of my guns are 45/70 govt, 357 mag, 22 or 12 ga... I believe in keeping it simple. Wish my wife did as well...
