Dude, you two need to get a room . .I bought my 92 Rossi in .357 back in the 80s. First 10 rounds over my chronograph showed me this is one potent load in a rifle! I've since improved a little on those loads with Li'l Gun (powder) I push 'em a little faster and lowered the pressure which extends brass life in the little rifle. I have other rifles I'd rather actually HUNT with, but this little rifle is very handy in the woods, a lot handier than my AR and shoots a much bigger bullet to about the same energy levels as .223.
Currently, my carbine is out in the truck riding behind the seat. It's easy to get out into action if I see pigs crossing the road and it's got the power to deal with 'em out to 100 yards. For some uses, yes, I've been sold on this little carbine for three decades, going on four. I have taken a deer at 80 yards with it, didn't go far, just a hand cast gas checked Lee bullet that weighs 165 grains with gas check installed. It's a favorite bullet of mine, quite accurate, and the big, wide meplat leaves a heck of a wound channel with total penetration.
I load very light, 2.3 grains Bullseye under a 105 grain cast SWC in .38 brass, load for small game. I've taken squirrel with it. It's 1.5" accurate at 25 yards which doesn't challenge any of my .22s, but it's accurate enough for small game like squirrel and rabbit to that range and it's a fun plinker load.
I've taken hogs with the very same 165 Lee SWC load out of my 6.5" Blackhawk revolver, too. I've been enamored with the caliber since I first started loading it in the 70s and my affection for it has only gotten better with use. Though I'll reach for my .308 to go sit in my deer stand, prefer the optics, my little rifle still has its place. To 100 yards, it'll do anything a .30-30 will do.
And, besides, it's some good eye candy.
