Deer hunting with a Ruger Blackhawk .357

I recently bought a stainless new model Blackhawk .357 with the 6.5 inch barrel. I would like to take it deer hunting some this fall when I'm hunting spots that I have a good chance of taking a close shot. I'll most likely carry a rifle as well to make sure I still have a good opportunity at longer range. I probably won't shoot the Blackhawk over 50 yards.

What is some good factory .357 ammo for deer hunting? I really want to try the Hornady LEVERevolutions to see how they perform in a revolver.

The federal fusion handgun ammo also crossed my mind.

Has anyone tried these or some other factory load that is a good deer killer?

I want to hear some personal experiences, not theories
