Default Question for the OT Gun Lovers

Ok, I know my way around semi-auto's pretty well, but don't know much about revolvers. I see that S&W lists their .357's as .357/38special +p
I realize that this means it will take both rounds, but my question is, will any .357 take .38special rounds??

Yes. 38 special is a slightly shorter round.

Sarcasm? Bad advice? I don't know what you're getting at.

Don't use a standard .44 Magnum in a .410 shotgun. .44 magnum shotshells work in a .410 (I wouldn't recommend it on a regular basis though), but regular .44Magnums have about 3x the pressure as a .410 shotgun shell - you'll probably blow up your gun. The .44 Magnum bullet is about .43 inches in diameter. It'll go about two inches, then try to enter the .41 inch diameter barrel, backed by about 40,000 psi of pressure. Bad things will happen.

About the .44 mag in a 410 thing. I have a friend who swears he's done it. I sure dont want to be anywhere around if he decides to do it again. Can you say split barrel

The pressure difference would be tremendous. Idiotic to try. Hey, Jax, you busy?
