I was checking price, performance and availability on several Ruger SA revolvers and found this one listed at my LGS. It checks out with 965 ft-lb energy putting it between the .357 and the .41 mag. Is it useful as a hunting gun for medium-large game? I was disappointed to see Ruger does not sell a small carbine for it. I liked the .30 Carbine back in the service (about 1960).
