I'd rather have a .44 Magnum, but a .357 Magnum is what I have. I'd like your opinion on which of these two choices would work best for bear and a woods load in general. However, bear is my biggest concern. Please tell me why you picked what you picked. Thanks. These seem to be my best and possibly only choices for factory ammunition: 1. Corbon 200gr. Hardcast Barrel length: 6" Velocity: 1150 FPS Energy: 587ft/lbs. 2. Buffalo Bore 180gr. Hardcast Barrel length 5" Velocity: 1398 FPC Energy: not stated Heavier and slower or lighter and faster? I'll be carrying these as my woods load in a 6" Ruger Security Six.
