Well, this is interesting and confirms what I've said over the years: The .45 is one of the easiest service calibers to shoot well.
I would be interested in the .357 vs .40 or .45.
Many experts consider the .357 the champ of man stopping rounds. But the only weapon I carry it in is a snubbie which means it is a distinctly unpleasant round to shoot. It was a pleasant roung in my old K-frame with a 4" barrel, but who wants to carry that around all day anymore?
There is the Coonan in .357, and there is the .357 Sig which has similar ballistics. The problem with the .357 sig is the cost of ammo.
