Factory Bullet for .357 Magnum Backcountry Load??
In a Ruger Security-Six .357 Magnum with a 4" barrel, for protection from animals, which FACTORY ammunition would you use while hiking around in the northern Utah and Wyoming mountains?
And, BEFORE all of the "get a bigger caliber" comments start, the Ruger is a gun my daughter traded her S&W 629 .44 Magnum to me for. She handled the recoil just fine. But, she was having a difficult time with the grip size. She is rather petite. And, when she would practice drawing quickly her hands just did not seem to have as secure a grip as she felt comfortable with. The Ruger seems to fit her hand much better.
"My plea is that we stop seeking out the storm and enjoy more fully sunlight. I am suggesting that as we go through life we accentuate the positive. I am asking that we look a little deeper for the good, that we still our voices of insult and sarcasm, that we more generously compliment and endorse virtue and effort." Gordon B. Hinckley
