What Do you guys think about the Taurus 357 magnum protector?
I agree, and with .38 it's more accurate I have to aim a little low with the .357 probly because how light and short it is ... I talk the store into knocking off a few bucks but the price between .357 and .38 were within $30 I thinkjonm61 said:The funny thing with .38 special vs .357 is that the perform the same in gelatin tests. It makes sense, because they are the same size and design, just one's going a little faster. The recommendation from Dr Roberts, based on his test results, is that the .38 is the better choice in a small revolver, because you get the same performance (the short barrel doesn't allow the .357 magnum to achieve its full potential), with less noise and recoil. You might want to load it with .38 rounds and call it a day.
The good thing is that, generally, the gun prices are the same, or very, very close, between those calibers, and with the .357 you have more options for ammo, so there's no loss in buying one.
