I was wondering how does a 6" revolver in 357 compare to a 45 revolver for recoil? I have a 357 in revolver and a 45 in semi auto pistol. The 357 even though it is heavier than the pistol it still has IMO much more recoil than the pistol. I imagine the semi auto does cause less felt recoil which makes me wonder how revolver to revolver compares. So I was wondering those that have 357 and 45 revolvers does the 357 still have more recoil than the 45 in revolvers? On a scale of 1-10 how would you say recoil compares for these two calibers in revolvers that are about same weight and barrel length? IE: I rate the 357 revolver a 7 or 8 and the 45 pistol a 5. Figuring a S&W 500 would bust the bell off the top of the scale.
