A lot of those .357s are made on frames that started with .38s (the K frame, in particular). I don't often carry revolvers, so my opinion will not be as valuable as some others. My reason for getting the guns that are chambered for the more powerful rounds is simply that if there is a shortage or other problem, I can use the lighter load in the gun that can shoot either.

That is a very different value from the goals expressed by several here, and their goals are valid. In my world, the .44 special would do all I ever need, and I admit I have little .44 magnum ammo. I just value the flexibility enough to make the magnum models more useful FOR ME.
