.357 Magnum Revolver Lion ammo?
      #75658 - 05/04/07 03:01 PM

I was reading about some PH and some clients take handguns as a backup if it is the only gun available in a emergency situation and in Zim I read the Park Ranges/PH mostly use 357 mag revolver, What factory ammo would be the best in this regard against lion and bigger nasties in the bush? I know a pistol is marginal against lion and such but if ts all you had what 357 ammo would you use? Thanks

If I had only a 357, I'd shoot myself with it instead of some critter chewing or stomping me to oblivion. Now, if it was the only thing I had on hand, I'd use at least 180 gr LBT or better yet, the 200 gr LBT for pure penetration. 357's are great man-stoppers or medium game. I know Doug Wesson went all over the world whacking everything to advertise the then new "357 Magnum" but he had back up and he was an excellent shot.

Lo do they call to me,
They bid me take my place among
them in the Halls of Valhalla,
Where the brave may live forever.
