A .357 is too light for responsible hunting of big game.

Someone has to say it. I love the .357, and my life depended on my model 19 for years, but, and there always is a but in life, hunting big game is not the best use of the caliber.

Exception: A very skilled shooter at reasonable ranges, who is a very skilled hunter with long experience and knowledge of making kill shots, but still, why work the edge of compassion for the game, when a larger caliber would be a better choice.

I have taken mule deer in Colorado with that same duty gun ... my model 19, but still stand by the above!
