Which has more penetration power: .357 Magnum or .44 Magnum?

Unfortuantely, it doesn't include a .357, but if you get a chance, watch the pistols episode of Lock N' Load with R. Lee Ermey. They fired a .38 S&W, a .45 ACP and a .44 magnum into ballistic gelatin and show the impact in super slow motion. These all occur at various places in the show, but at the last stage, they compare all three simultaneously. The videos of each are displayed one above the other, and the impacts are synchronized.
I thought the effect of the .44 mag into the gel was pretty cool. :D
