Interesting. I wonder how the 357 mag round would do in a carbine out to say 75 yards...(yes, for deer hunting).

It would be a marginal round for deer hunting. It would work for SHTF situations. I like the 357 for self defense and as a backup for my hunting rifle.

I plan to use mine for deer hunting this year and was thinking about using the federal fusions, but this round looks promising as well. That is quite a large amount of penetration out of a shorterbarreled revolver, iIMO.

out of a carbine, you're going to pick up some velocity over the 4" barreled pistol they used for the test. how much, not for sure. shot placement and reasonable distances used, i think it could work fine on deer.

I was going to use it in some stands where my shots could never be more than 75 yards. I think I may mount a scout type scope on it to help aid in low light conditions, but I'm not sure if I will have time before the season starts. If not I have a 12 gauge slug gun that will work just fine for a brush gun in those stands.
