If you were going to give advice to a new comer (who doesn't do his/her own reloading), what brand and type of factory ammo have you found give the best groups and performance for a stock New Vaquero .357 Mag for field and hunting applications?

Good luck on finding any factory loads, cuz there ain't any around here.....anything you can find I would glom onto. I just would not shoot gun show reloads, and stick with the major brands.........Hombre

Take up reloading.... you'll enjoy it, you'll be able to hand-tailor your loads to the task at hand, and you'll shoot more for the same $$$$ (after the equipment is paid for, of course).
