    If the barrel is .357, you will probably need a .359 or thereabout bullet diameter. I would look at 180 gr. bullets for a rifle.

    Yes, I am at the top of the state. Once it reached me it was just wind and a steady medium rain. My damage was limited to leaves / branches on the ground as well as a pool full of leaves.

    With pure lead or 40-1 I am not sure point shape plays a significant role since expansion tends to be very good above 1,200 FPS. Even at 900 FPS I got good expansion with 40-1 with a Lyman 454190 out of a 7 1/2 Colt 1873 on deer.

    Ruger #3 scope bases are different front & rear. If you have the correct scope bases installed correctly - taller one in front and shorter one in the rear then any scope rings will work. I have #3ís in 22 Hornet, 22 TCM (Re-barreled .223),...
