Question about Revolvers and Rounds Used
Why is it that I've never heard of a revolver chambered in 9mm, .40S&W, .45ACP, .357SIG, etc. I've only heard of a .22, .38, .357, .327, .44, etc etc.
My thinking is that in snubbies, a .38 round is a lot longer than a 9mm or .40, causing the cylinder to be longer and heavier. Couldn't you have a shorter cylinder (and thus a possibly longer barrel or shorter gun) if you had a shorter round?
Is there something obvious I'm overlooking? I mean, obviously a revolver round is going to pack more of a punch, but for a deep concealment revolver, it's about size and weight.
Basically, there must be obvious reasons why they don't exist... can anyone explain it to me?
