well I disagree entirely you just have to get a gun set up for target with the .357 sig, also the ballastics on ballistic gel the difference between the 2 loads become negligable. For hunting all you would have to do is get one of several aftermarket barrels for a Beretta 96 and many other makes (holds a .357 sig) and viola longer length barrel with the same carry as a big honkin revolver.
I love my .41 mag, but I am not gonna carry it with me, my 32-C is comfy, shoots GREAT! @25 yards and a little beyond (without rests or other devices to steadieness). I hardly see how its a bad load. I wanted to compare the gun to a .357 mag so I bought 2 watermelons of equal weight and shot one JHP into each, well not much melon left 'cept on the sides (shots both @ 25 yards used a rest to steady both shots to the center of the melon).
Also if you just hit your target it does'nt matter what gun you're carrying when it comes down to the nitty gritty of it (IE some isreali operatives are given integral silenced Ruger .22 lrs. They are just trained to shoot someone in the forehead or back of the head so as the bullet will do a gymnastic routine on your brain matter, thus killing you efficiently quietly and without shooting big holes in walls) , or if your the target type, I seem to be stayin' in the black rather well...
