What is the effective range of the .357 Bulldog?

The acceptable range from the shooter to target, for any hunting gun depends on many factors including the ammunition used, the hunter's skill, accuracy of the gun as well as the size of the kill zone (kz).

In the right conditions, from my experience using the .357 Nosler bullet (medium size game with 4” KZ), I would be comfortable out to around 80 yards. If you zero your Bulldog at 42 yards you will get a “point blank range” of 15 to 47 yards, and the bullet will drop around 8 inches at 80 yards.
