I've been wondering for a while now how the best two never-quite-widely-accepted auto calibers stack up against each other, and various other not-so-common calibers in the same size/power range. Assuming we're talking duty-type loads (that is, not the loaded-as-hot-as-possible stuff, and not the milquetoast mild practice stuff), how do they stack up against each other? Yes, I am aware that shooting either is an exercise in reloading, or an exercise in abusing your wallet- I need no warning there.
Heck, throw .357 Sig into the mix, too. How does the newcomer stack up against the old warhorse, .38 Super?
Basically, I'm eventully going to get another 1911 pattern gun, and I'm interested in something a little more off the beaten path than .45ACP (I already have two .45s, a 1927 Sistema and a 4506). I do already have a 10mm (Glock 20), so I was leaning towards the .38 Super, just because. Then I started thinking, and, well, nothing good comes of that.
Heck, what guns are chambered in .38 super, besides 1911s?
