.357 is plenty big and accurate for short-range hunting, although it is more commonly offered in revolvers instead of pistols.

 

More accurate at longer ranges would be the likes of the Savage Striker and the Thompson Contender.

They are available in a miriad of rifle calibers and can take deer out to 300 yards with good optics and a steady hand.

I think it can be done, but it is a marginal application. Personally, I would use nothing less than the .41 Mag with the .44 my prefered for deer.

The dia. of gun is less important than the speed. Vel. will cause hydralic(shock) damage. I went from a .44mag to a 454 and am happy. A .44 has quite a bit more vel. than the .357
