Personally I'm doubting the 158 gr. JHP's as a hunting load. I think I need something with more penetration.

I love the Hornady LE's but they only offer the .357 in a 140 gr. bullet at 1440 fps and 644 ft/lbs muzzle energy through an 8" barrel. The fusion bullet is a 158 gr. at 1240 fps and 539 ft/lbs muzzle energy. Im wondering if the 140 gr. ballistic tip in the LE is too light, even with the higher energy.

Bigghoss- I checked out those Buffalo Bores, I like 'em

BTW, I realize that a .357 revolver is not the best deer gun, but its kind of like bow hunting, I want a little challenge.
