Besides the obvious size differences, what are the differences between .357 and .44 in revolvers?
44 = heavier ammo, heavier gun. more powerful round usually means more pressure, gotta build the gun stronger..
price of ammo..
There is some special mystique about a .357 and .44 Magnum, can someone explain it?
umm... theyre some of the larger revolver calibers
.357 is more popular that .44 Magnum.
.357 will be cheaper and you can also shoot .38 special out of a .357 Magnum.
With a .44 Magnum you can also shoot .41 Special. It's not any cheaper but you'd be able to shoot it all day where as with .44 my hand starts hurting after a box of fiddy.
with a .44 you can ask your punk target if it feels lucky.
I have a large revolver.. see my other thread for pics
I'm looking forward to a S&W 686 soon.
I even just checked Natchez and some of their Spl is even more expensive. And it hasn't been cheaper when I've bought local.
