He has results from 18.5" Marlin - I did not "do the math" but it appears to be so. I don't know if it is for the 180 grain load, 158 grain load, or the 125 grain load or all of them but I would be skeptical of the 125 grain for "big game" hunting regardless of the numbers. It is what it is. I love Buffalo Bore.

If it makes the cartridge legal to use, than that's good for you. Otherwise, I wouldn't be too worried about the foot pounds. A heavy .357 bullet of proper construction penetrates well, so placed properly it should be all right for deer sized game under 100yds. I don't know what your definition of "big game" is, but I wouldn't shoot anything that might bite back with a .357. The cartridge is marginal for medium game such as pigs and deer.

I have always heard that Buffalo Bore manufactures GREAT,
reliable, hard hitting ammo. They seem to have good credibility.
Actually, I am glad to know that they have a "heavy" 357 load.
The 357 is a good cartridge and can take most game at
reasonable distances.
