    Weii, I guess a .44 mag is more manly than a .357, but I can hit better with a .357.

    Ever hear of the “cut slug”? Take your shotgun round, and go around the plastic right along the brass base with your knife almost to the point of all the way through. Load, pull trigger, plastic jacketed shotslug goes downrange in one piece until impact.
