A 357 will work in a pinch but I'd stick with the bigger bullets.
A 44 SPL or 45 Colt are better choices assuming you reload. Do not use plunking or cowboy type ammo. Avoid the self defense stuff too. Those bullets will come apart before the job is done.
Stepping up to a heavier bullet over 1000 fps turns them into critter getters. You don't need the abuse of the heavy Buffalo Bore stuff to do the trick.
