Go with a 357 Mag 158 XTP HP's for Deer and smaller pigs or the Swift bullet for bigger/tougher stuff.
Easy to shoot.

Ernie must be trying to get on my good side.Wait..... Ernie was never on my bad side.

A properly loaded .357 and good shot placement will get 'er done for sure. I use four inch .357's loaded to almost max loads and although they do bark and bite on the opposite end they are easy on the hands. Especially if you have double carpal tunnel like me.


I just use my 357 Mag for steel, pd's, deer, and antelope.
Easy stuff to kill.
After some more extended distance steel shooting, I am going to have my FR barrel shortened or just get another one with a shorter barrel......

Well I might have a new gun, My friend has a Ruger Bisley .45 he has been trying to sell. I can get it cheap! I am going to the range this week to shoot it.

Another thing to consider is some custom grips.

I have a 44 mag Bisley Hunter that I have been using for a while now. I also have a SRH in 44 mag and always found it more comfortable to shoot hotter loads with the Hogue Tamers on the SRH.

Last month I sent my Bisley gripframe to Jack Huntington (JRH Advanced Gunsmithing) to have custom grips made and for his frame modification which removes some metal from the frame for a more hand friendly fit.

You submit a tracing of your hand with the gripframe like you would for a set of Herret grips, and the panels are made to fit.

The work was done FAST (2 1/2 weeks door to door) and the results were surprising. The other day I was shooting the Bisley back to back with my SRH using the same loads and the Bisley is now more comfortable than the Hogues on the SRH.

Yup. I've been preaching this for years and it is so true. Here is my old .500 JRH Bisley's custom grips with fame mods by JRH.
