.357 ammo choices
My new "play" gun is a Ruger SP101 in .357. Because I live and play in "condor country" I cannot carry ammo that has lead in it. So, this leaves me with 2 choices for ammo...
Corbon DPX 125 gr
469 ft/lbs energy
Federal vital-shock 140 gr
509 ft/lbs energy
Which of these 2 choices would be the best SD round?
Which of these 2 choices would be the best defensive round against wild critters?

I'd choose the Cor-Bon, mainly because it's got a fairly good track record against 2-legged varmints.
As for 4-legged, it would depend on the varmint. Large feline & lupine problems (or smaller), the Cor-Bon would do just fine. Ursine...and I'd be looking for something heavier and solid.

Another vote for the Corbon DPX load. If you are worried about bears, I would carry a .44 magnum revolver with the .44 magnum Corbon DPX. That would handle both man and beast sufficiently.
God bless our troops!
