    Any factory should go alright.

    Go for 158 HP the lighter bullet weights are for self defence and are really too fragile for animals
    if you reload cast bullets are economical.

    Aoraki ammunition in Timaru do a 158gr Geco JHP in .357. Very pleasant to deal with too

    If you're planning to reload, look at getting some 2205 and whatever SP/JHP you can get your hands on. The 2205 works better in the longer barrel than the factory loadings, which are tailored towards the pistol shooter. More zing, less pressure, go have a look at the load data

    Identify your target beyond all doubt
