The Coonan DID get the function "bugs" worked out of cranking "Rimmed Revolver Ammo" through an autoloader.
If I remember correctly it did not take kindly to most handloaded .357 ammo. Once you found the factory load that it "liked" ~ then it was awesome & reliable.
Since there was no loss of oomph out of a revolver "cylinder gap" .357 Mag velocity was a bit higher in the Coonan.
The PROBLEM with buying a "Like New or Mint Condition" Coonan NOW is the general rarity of the Coonan magazines. Expect to pay BIG bucks for spare mags "if & when" they pop up.

The other thing on the .357 mag in an autoloader is trying to put your fist around one if you're an average sized shooter. I have no problem with a Desert Eagle, but for a gun that big and bulky, I want a bigger boom.
They're conceable with effort but the biggest problem in that area is lack of holsters - I ended up having to make my own.

Yea, it is miss-leading.

I think it is a bad move for Glock to drop the traditional name of the caliber if it contains the name of another company. It can lead to confusion. They even changed the 45 ACP to “45 Auto”. I’m not certain but I think the practice started when the S&W Sigma came out and Glock sued them for copyright infringment. Around that time they started referring to their guns chambered for 40 S&W as “40 Auto”. My model 23 pre-dates this practice, so it actually says “40 S&W” on the slide.
