the 40 cal is a little bigger then the 357

The .40 is larger in diameter and (normally) has a heavier bullet.

The 9mm Lugar round is longer than a .380 Caliber, which is also equal to 9mm in diameter. The overall cartridge and the bullet is larger and the case contains more powder. The 9mm Lugar is more powerful. BTW, the .40 cal Smith and Wesson is also called a 10mm. It is only 1mm larger in diameter and a little more powerful than a 9mm Lugar.

40 cal ACP (not CAP) is the same as 40 cal. S&W. ACP refers to 'automatice cartridge pistol' wheras S&W refers to Smith and Wesson, who also make the 40 cal. cartridge....

Which is better- Spaghetti or pizza? The .40 cal has more energy, and appears to be a higher "stopping power" round than the 9mm Parabellum. The 9mm has less recoil, and the ammunition is (generally) less expensive. You will find folks that can argue BOTH sides of this questions. EDIT* The .40 is generally preferred in combat situtations as it is significantly more powerful and is not too much bigger.
