    If a .45 is considered big and slow and the 9mm small and fast, what is the 44Mag considered?

    ...overkill...? :D

    Just kidding! The .44Mag is an excellent cartridge for hunting or defense against bigger dangerous critters. Big, fast, & lotsa knockdown power as long as you can put the bullets where you intend to.

    41 magnum? Big and fast. Big is 40 or over. Fast is 1000 or over. 38 special is small and slow. 357 is small and fast. Actually pretty simple.

    Just about perfect... :D

    That's another one of them oddball rounds that used to be hard to find ammo for but now it's one of the few calibers that you still see on the shelves! ;)

    All three are excellent calibers for their intended use. Some have just been around longer than the others.
