Over the last forty+ years I’ve shot well over fifty deer with the .357mag and another dozen or so with the .357mag in a Marlin lever gun. Almost all were shot with a 158g Hornady XTP or a 180g Hornady XTP. Neither bullet will “blow up” at any load you can shoot at any book load. I’ve shot the same bullets in a .357MAX and they became problematic at 2300fps and above. I’ve used H110/WW296 for almost all my loads for many years. Other powders will work as well. FWIW, if you look at the Lyman loading manual, they show the same loads for both handgun and rifle.
