I have hunted both elk and mule deer with a T/C Contender in .357 Herrett and 7-30 Waters and have had a lot of fun doing it.

One of the elk that I took with the .357 Herrett droped in her tracks at a little over 100 yards. I have also taken two bull elk with the Herrett with no problems and one with the Waters witch took a follow up shot but it really wasn't necessary.
