I dont think that would be an ideal hunting bullet. You want a wider meplat to transfer more energy. A combination of penetration and energy transfer is ideal.

Wide flat nosed gas checked is what you're looking for in cast.

Hornady XTP's in 158 and 180 are good jacketed hunting bullets.

Speer made a half jacket hollow point and soft point that were excellent hunting bullets. They're hard to find now.

The BEST factory 357 hunting load Ive used is the .357 Corbon load linked above. It worked very well out of a 6.5" Blackhawk on deer and pigs.
