357 Mag Pistol Deer Hunting
I am going to try hunting with my 357 this season and would like to know what is the longest distance I would be able to drop one.
Here is the pistol,
It has an 8 inch barrel.
I am thinking of using the Hornady HP-XTP 140 grain which will be traveling at about 1350fps.
I was thinking around 150 yards would be the max. Am I wrong?
The only deer I ever see be shot were with 30-30 rifles and 12 gauge shotguns, so I really don't know how hard this pistol will hit. Should I use the 158 grain bullet?
"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."-- Samuel Adams
