I also have lever action rifles to match the pistols.

Have both and have to say that if I needed a hunting handgun the 45Colt in a Ruger Bisley or Blackhawk..As a reloader one can load cream puff loads to bangers that rival the 44mag..Your choice.. Whitetail deer and/or wild hogs if one were to walk out is what I am looking at.

However, I'm undecided between .357, and 45Colt, two of the calibers, Both mate, not comparable..357 one of the most dangerous round, to anything on two legs.. of. As the technology got better, the revolvers chambering the .357 got smaller, first with the Smith & Wesson K-frames which became very popular in law enforcement and for concealed carry those who were brave enough could buy a tiny snub nosed revolver chambered in the first Magnum cartridge, still an option today, although the blast and recoil can be intimidating to some. The decision for which round is better for a given application should be made with complete information, and this article simply serves as a comparative guide, not the final say. In the scope of my existence, the .357 really is hands down the better of the two (properly loaded with the right bullets that is!). 1.
