The first deer I ever shot was at 60 yards with a Colt Cobra 357 6" barrel, and Aim Point. Almost a perfect shot; hit the shoulder and the 158gr XTP hollow point bullet exploded. I got lucky and a small pc of the bullet severed the heart. Found him 10-20 yards away. When I stepped it off I was a little taken back it was 60 yards. I would not have taken the shot. 357 at very short distances with a soft point bullet might be acceptable but why chance it.

Move up to a 41mag or 44 mag with a jacketed soft point bullet. You won't be sorry.
I know little about everything, and know everything about nothing.
I want to pass away peacefully like my grandfather, not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.
