Hornady 357 magnum 140 grain FTX LEVERevolution

I bought some for possibly deer hunting from a 6" revolver. Anybody else shoot them?

Do you think they'd be good for deer?

Supposedly 1440 fps through an 8" barrel. I don't know if these fast rounds at 140 gr will be better than a slower 158 to 180 bullet. But thought I'd give them a try.

Do you have a chrono available to see how your 6" shoots them?

They should do an excellent job on deer and other thin skinned game. It would be a little light and fragile for big hogs or anything that requires good penetration.

We also got some Remington 180gr SJHP, supposedly 1150 fps.

I imagine they'd have good penetration.

Which would be better for deer? I think they'd both work, so I guess I'll just let her pick whatever she likes shooting more.

I thought that load was made more for the rifles that are 357 than the revolvers as one of the main reasons is soft tip so you can carry a non softpoint in tub magazine of a lever gun
