New to gun hunting. I have a .357 mag henry lever action. Planning on putting a light optic on it for <100 yards. My question is, what factory load ammo is recommended for deer? Thank you in advance!
Out of all 357 mag rds shot out of a rifle...IMO, with good shot placement the 158grn. JSP is hard to beat on deer size animals.
Hundred yards or under you get good penetration, expansion and bullet retention.
Used to shoot both Remington and Federal brands with success.
Might get a box of both and see which one prints best for you.
Good luck...and please post back with your range results.
