The .44, hands down, any day of the week and twice on Sunday. Have the 3", need to order the 5".

Small nail, use a small hammer, big nails, use a bigger hammer. Go with the 44 special & you're covered, you can always down load a tick & be just fine.

we can debate "slightly smaller and faster vs slightly bigger and slower" all day. to debate bigger and faster is a no brainer. go 44 mag and use the 357 for what it was designed to do and that is as a defensive weapon and excellent small to medium sized game.

I'd agree, but Ruger isn't offering a GP-100 in 44 mag ;-)

Obviously, "both" is the correct answer here. How else could you conduct a proper comparison.


I second this notion.

My opinion is based on very limited experience, but I'd say get the .44 Spl. As pretty much everyone else has said.

I always tell my wife..."buying a new gun is an investment dear." Mostly in my happiness, but that counts for something.

And I had always considered deer as medium game?

depends what your baseline is. to me elk is large but isn't close to what i call big. i consider oryx and what not as medium but i thought we were talking about what's best, not what will work. no doubt 357 works on deer, no doubt 44 is better.
