    I'm loading some 158 Sierra SP's for my .357 Herrett. Velocity will be +/- 2,000 fps. I suspect these were made for .357 mag, which has considerably less velocity.

    Anybody have experience using these for deer? How did they work? My concern is that they'll lack sufficient penetration.

    Edit to add: just saw the thread down below about 30-06 and the link. I went to the Sierra website. Looks like they'll be OK

    I used Hornady 158 gr. XTP HP bullets to take a black wildebeest with a 357 Herrett & I got plenty of penetration.
