    Iíd choose .44, big bore, heavy grain slug.
    At distance a lighter .357 bullet would probably perform better, but if thatís what you want, seems 30-30 is your best bet.
    I think last time I priced both over the counter there was $6 difference between a box of Magtec .357 and .44.

    If you plan to buy a .357 lever make sure it will also run .38spl, Iíve read a few reports of Rossiís choking on some .38 spl. loads.

    I'm a .357 fan in carbine length barrels. My Puma is 16" and IIRC a hot 158gr load (like Underwood) is pushing almost 1800fps out of a 16" barrel. The 125's supposedly hit 2000fps. Increase to an 18" barrel and those velocities improve a good deal.

    Personally, I would rather have the .357 version, over the .44 Magnum version. Ammo availability/cost is a factor, and recoil will be slightly less.
    Good night Chesty...wherever you are.
