I have shot a 44 revolver (think a 5 inch). I have never shot a 44 mag. I can't find a 44 J-frame to rent or try. I'm about three or fewer weeks from buying a small frame (J-frame S&W) light weight revolver of some type.
1) I was told that shooting a 44 special small frame was like shooting a 45 ACP. Does that sound right?
2) I was told the .357 Mag is far more brutal (out of a J-frame light weight) than a 44 special is. Does that sound right?
