Out of a 2in. barrel ...what would be the advantage of a 357 over a 38 Spl. +P ??? I know the 357 would increase , kick.. muzzel flash , muzzel jump.... But ballisticly how much difference ??? Would the difference be worth all the bad side effects ? I know with a 21 OZ. 38 Spl. snubbie I had it was a handful with +P The advantages of the 38 +P would be ..use of a lighter gun ...Less muzzel flash..quicker follow up shots... Wanna kill these ads?
