Hey guys - Just wanted to gather some thoughts on something. I've been carrying a 6" S&W 686 357 Mag while playing in the woods, hiking, hunting, fishing, etc. This has primarily been in Western and Central Oregon, where aside from two-leggers, the only threats i'd have even a chance of encountering would be pigs, cougars, or possibly black bears. Have been stoking it with 158grn Semi-jacketed softpoints, thinking about the increased penetration. Almost bought some 180grn hardcast Doubletap loads tonight, still thinking about penetration on critters. But at some point I wonder if I'm into overkill territory for the critters in these parts. Do I step up to 180 HC's? Stick with 158 SJSP? Or would I even be better served going with a 125grn or 158grn HP, which would certainly be more effective against the more probably 2-legged critters growing pot out in the woods? Recoil of any of those less of a concern than terminal effect. Lastly, do any of your answers change if my territory changed to Central/Northern Idaho where wolves and brown bears conceivably enter the equation as well? Discuss. Thanks!
