    The .358 is a good one, have used it with cast on deer myself, but you don't really need bullets that big to deer hunt effectively. The .30s and .32 I've used worked great. Was a little apprehensive about one this small, but if I haven't tagged out during archery, I plan to use this rifle with cast again when the rifle season opens here.

    Congrat On your successful hunt! I think rifles in the 7x57, 7mm-08, and 280 Rem chamberings are perfect rifles for deer size animals. My son and wife each have 7mm-08’s and I have 280 Rem. All of them are very accurate. They have accounted for lot of venison.

    I know the .30's work on deer as the only deer I've killed with cast has been with my .300 Savage. I just want to kill one with my .358 because it is bloodless with cast. I'd also like to kill one with my 7.62x39 using cast.
