.357 Magnum Thunderheads
230 grain bullet at 900 fps. Semiwadcuter design with a soft tip for minor expansion. For the heavy and slow crowd who don't like them newfangled dum-dums.
For woodwork, I like the Double-Tap 200 grain hardcast that leaves my 3" GP-100 at 1215 fps or thereabouts. Or...Buffalo Bore's 180 grain lead flatnose at 1350. Either will discourage up to a 400 pound blackie, and there's a swamp rat here who says the DT 200 grainers are hell on gators.
