Howdy Usually threads are posted with comparison between calibers or questions about what can you do with certain caliber. My question today is: what you cannot do with a 357 magnum that will require you to go for a bigger caliber? In other words where does the line end for the 357 magnum, making it useless while still remaining in the realm of handgun calibers. My hypothesis is that there isn't any limit if the gun is in seasoned hands. Certain scenarios are conceivable where its bigger brother 44 can do a better job, but it does not mean a job 357 cannot do. Furthermore, anything over 44 is unnecessary and impractical anyways, but thats a different debate. PS: we are discussing SD, HD and Woods/Hunting.
