Can't give you any hands on advice but I will be using the 140 grain Barnes 140 grain Vor-Tex this year with my 9" TC Encore.

I've taken 5 nice heavy WV deer with my Python and 158 gr. Sierra JHCs and a few does with 158 gr. XTPs. The Sierra caused more damage than the xtps on shots from 50-75 yds. Good soft, destructive bullet.

Although I've been a life long cast bullet shooter I made my longest ever revolver kill on a deer with a 140 gr Sierra JHC with an 8 3/8's S&W. There are many, many great jacketed bullets out there for the 357 & deer size game.

If you don't handload, Underwood Ammo has a 158 grain XTP HP loading that are right at 1500 fps out of my 6" GP100. Exited my whitetail, the recovered one weighed 141 grains after going through 14-16" of whitetail that was quartering away. There are pics of the recovered bullet in my photos on here.
