I have killed deer and hogs with Nosler 180s mostly but have also killed a few with Remington 158gr soft points and Hornady Leverevolution 140s. From a handgun most of the 158gr soft point hollow points will work

I don't think these are legal for deer because they don't expand, but I have no doubt they would work. You are good to go on bumfuzzling hogs though.
“He grouped his last five shots right in the center of the bull’s-eye. Then I showed him my technique of scattering shots randomly around the target because, as I explained, you never know which way the deer might jump just as you pull the trigger.”
158 gr. SJHP. Many good manufacturers. Expansion is excellent at the ranges you will be shooting. Know your trajectory, study it. I have hunted often over the years with a .357 and it is more than adequate for the job on deer and hogs +. Good luck, you are probably going to love this.
