Slow motion recoil comparison: .38 Special vs. .357 Magnum

Slow motion video is interesting. The .38 recoils in slow motion exactly how I imagined it would, which is to say not very much at all.

In fact, in the slow mo video you can see my grip comes apart at the end of the magnum relay, which is something I didn’t really notice when shooting it live.
