use a decent 180 grain bullet like a Federal cast core, Hornady XTP or Buffalo Bore.

Heres a few links for these...

Ive also heard good things about Winchester Partition Gold 180g - but every time Ive tried to order em they arent in stock. so I dont know if they make em anymore

my grandpa uses one during the gun season. he carries it in a hip-holster in case he has to finish a deer off or if its to close. all the deer hes taking with it have been 25 yards or less. it knocks deer over if you hit them

I use 158gr JSP and have taken 3 whitetails with it.
It works fine but none of mine have passed thru the deer. Bullet ends up on the far side hide.
Longest shot was about 60yds. All 3 ran about 40yds.
This was with a Ruger Blackhawk with a 6.5" barrel.

This one will get it done if you do your part http://www.buffalobore.com/ammunition/default.htm#357

Compare it to the others, nothing else is even close.
