Re: .357 mag rifle for deer/similar sized game
The reason i was hesitant on using it for deer was the numbers. At the muzzle (18 inch barrel), hornady lists the energy at around 1064, and at 100 yards its just about 500 ft-pounds (357 Mag 140 gr FTX® LEVERevolution). Now i know energy isnt everything but 500 ft-lbs from a middle weight bullet doesn't seem like the trick with a sectional density of .157
