Took this gun to Texas Gun Club this morning. I didn't shoot any .357's, as I plan to only carry .38 +P Gold Dots anyway, so I can't comment on if those are unpleasant or not. The .38 +P rounds were actually a pleasure to shoot, which is why I didn't want an aluminum J-frame (this 640 steel frame model is 22.4 oz compared to 14). Based on this, I can only speculate at this point that .357's would be fairly manageable, but proper followup shots might be slow. The trigger pull is fairly long and strong, but very smooth (this is double action only). It took a bit of getting used to, but once I got it down after a box of ammo, the attached photo is demonstrative of what you can do at 5 yards. I consider it a keeper. I shot my buddy's Kimber K6S along side of it and I like the 640 Pro better (just me, somebody else may feel differently). Reset on the Kimber was very slow to me, although the trigger is lighter. On the Cobra, I had posted (with photos) a little while back on why I was disappointed with the look of the fit and finish (looked like cheap Charter Arms crap in the photos). I had expected something nice from Colt. If you can't find the post, see the closeup photos on Jeff Quinn's Gunblast.com website review. The fit/finish of this 640 is far above it. I will carry this 640 for sure. If I try 357's, I will post.

My son used the Mark V Ultralight this season to good effect on this nice Colorado Mulie!
Nice rifle in 25-06.  I made a good supply of ammo tuned to the rifle, so he is a happy hunter!!

Shot him at 10:05am. He was 80 yards out walking thru the woods. Tried to get him to stop but he wouldn’t. He went about 60 yards after the shot. Hit him just above the heart and destroyed his lungs. Don’t know how he went that far to tell you the truth. Left lots of blood about 10 yards from where I shot him.
I was using the 127 grain Barnes LRX. I know 1000 yard rifle taking shots that are under 100 yards.
