    When I deer hunt in Illinois, I use a 200 LBT WFN haulin' butt in a S&W 686. Dual ball crane locks and no endplay. But, we can and do come up against 300+ pound deer.

    WDWW 158 gr. to 200 gr. flat point with .25 or larger meplat.
    The .357 Magnum......
    1935
    Major Douglas Wesson, using factory loads, which were a 158 gr. soft lead bullet, traveling 1515 fps, from an 8 3/4" barreled S&W, producing 812 ft. lbs of muzzle energy.
    Antelope - 200 yards (2 shots)
    Elk - 130 yards (1 shot)
    Moose - 100 yards (1 shot)
    Grizzly Bear - 135 yards (1 shot).

    It kind of makes one wonder, why today, it will bounce off anything bigger than a rabbit
