On Friday Nov. 3, I took a button buck with a 4" 357 mag, a Taurus Tracker using 158 gr. Federal Fusion ammo. The 357 worked fine. The deer was coming right at me and I pulled the trigger at about 25 yards. The bullet entered the chest and came out it's right front leg. The deer dropped right there. If you keep your ranges reasonable and put the bullet where it needs to go you should be fine.
Live everyday as if it is your last! Because someday you will be right.
