We knock the suitability of .357 carbines for deer around a good bit, in addition to what ever responses you get, you might try the search function.

With an appropriate bullet (I'm thinking 158 gr and up, in JHP or SP configuration) a .357 carbine ought to make a suitable deer gun up to 100 yds or so. The .357 ctg gets a pretty good boost from carbine length barrels, maybe 400 fps or more, and takes the round to a serious level of power.

Lots of guys have killed deer with .357 carbines. While it does not equal .30-30 power, or .44 mag power, it is a viable option, used within the limits of your ability and the rounds limited reach.
