cougar and the .357 mag.

In montana cougar hunting is great. I always use my revolver its a S&W model 66 with a cheap scope on b-square custom mounts. I have always shot 125gr sjhp bullets ahead of 12grs of alliant blue dot. I have never had to track a cat or had to make a second shot on the four i have shot. All beutiful animals. My biggest cat was about 180lbs

For this type of game, my 357 Mag uses 180-gr. Winchester Supreme Partition Gold or Federal 180-gr. Hard Cast or Hornady 180-gr. XTP's as outstanding hunting rounds.

Like Hornady 125-gr. XTP's or Winchester 145-gr. Silvertips for self defense.

I got the gunned retailed by a gun smith and he priced it at $500. I shoot 250gr winchester platinum silver tips. I have never hunted cat but I know I have all the right stuff. Big smile
