Were did all the posts on using a .357 mag in a rifle go? I just ordered the Miruko 1892 with a Winchester name on it. Wanted to do a little research as I know we have several people here who have used it for hunting. Can some of you spill some info for me? Thanks

FA18CUB:

I have a Marlin in .357 that I have used for javelina, coyote, jackrabbit and Texas whitetail a number of years ago. It is one of the most accurate carbines that I own and when other folks shoot it they never fail to comment on the accuracy. I stick to 158 JHPs and I have a Williams peep-sight added. The .357 has always been effective for me in a rifle, even on the Texas whitetails.

Has anyone got chrono results with the 180-185 gr bullets? What are they out of a 20' barrel? Has anyone got downrange figures? Say 50/75/100/150 yrds? I am trying to build a useful "database" to keep in my brain when I am shooting. What kind of energy are we talking about?

Jack thanks, I tried to link to an old thread listed by Alyeska and that would not connect. I think it was Marshalls comments #2188. Any suggestions?
