I'm getting my girlfriend her first gun (shes done quite a bit of shooting but never had her own). Ive already decided on a rifle chambered in either 357 mag or 44 mag. My first thought was the 44 just because, well, I've always wanted one, but alas it isn't for me. So my question is, assuming identical rifles and average for caliber loads, how do the two rounds compare in areas like felt recoil, noise, and trajectory/ballistics ? Just for point of reference the gun will be used mostly for paper punching and pumpkin popping.
remember, ALWAYS leave him a way out, a man with no way out is a man with nothing to lose, and a man with nothing to lose is more dangerous than you can imagine
