357 JSP vs JHP in a rifle

I just pick up a Taurusn rifle in 357mag. It has a 24" barrel. So my question is 158gr bullet out of a 24" barrel which would be better for hunting.

I have done chrono testing on 2 .357 carbines. 20" and 22" barrels.
You will get a 200 to 400FPS MV increase over a 6" revolver.
I would think that JSP ammo would give you better hunting results.

Thumbs Up JHP vs. JSP


I've got a Rossi chambered in .357 with a 16 inch barrel and find that for some reason I get better accuracy from the JSP's i have tried than the JHP's. May just be my rifle but who knows? Also, according to Buffalo Bore, it is possible to get 30-30 ballistics from a .357 rifle using a 125gr JHP. For hunting purposes I prefer penetration so I again opt for the JSPs. Depends on what your planning to do with it as to which I would go with. I use mine for a super handy truck gun and it also sees backup duty at the house for HD behind the AR.
