View Full Version : .357 Revolver for Deer Hunting?

I'm unloading a unfired .460 XVR, but now it has me thinking, Can I take a deer reliably with a 6" .357.

Thoughts recommendations?

Yes. Within reasonable distances and with appropriate skill.

Ditto. I use mine as if Bow hunting. Shots in close under 35 yards. I also use 158 grain Federal Fusion ammo, good stuff, I took a nice spike last year with it. Have not had a chance/ shot this year on any handgun deer (took 3 with rifle).
