At close range the .357 is enough for game you mentioned but I'd feel better with bigger,heavier bullet with more energy. The best loads would be preminum loads with 158-180 gr bullets loaded "hot" like cor-bon or such loading.

16gr of Lilgununder a 180 xtp or 18gr of lilgun with the 158gr.

I get 1900fps with the 158 out of a marlin 94
