Now I am thinking I need either the 357 or the 38 to finish off the 2.25" set.
Completing a set for a collection is a completely different matter than the practical applications of the gun/cartridge combination.

If you're looking at getting the full set, then get the "oddball" or less popular variants, FIRST!

The reason being that those go away first, and become scarce and hard to find before the more popular ones do.

You have the 9mm, so get the .38 NOW, while its available. Odds on finding the .357 later are much better than finding either the 9mm or the .38, so I'd wait on the .357 and get the other(s) first while you can.

For your collection. If it were for primary use, I'd get the .357 first, but that's not what you're looking at here, if i read you right.
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
