    Are .357 pistols allowed during the alternative methods season? How about a .45 or .9 mm carbine? If so, what would you recommend for ammo?

    Thanks

    Any center fire handgun using an expanding bullet is legal.
    Personally I think 357 is bare minimum and I would use a 158grn JHP.
    I would not use a 9mm or 45acp.

    As already noted, those are all allowed for the alternative methods portions if using expanding type bullets. Also remember there is a ammo capacity restriction of not more than 10 rounds in a mag and one in the chamber. The magazine can not be capable of holding more than that amount.

    I don't think a carbine qualifies as a pistol.

    What he said; handguns, not rifles. Just because it uses a handgun cartridge does not make it a handgun.

    That's a picture of the 460 S&W, not a 9mm Carbine. Like it was mentioned above, rifles shooting pistol calibers are not legal.

    Wishing I could take advantage of alternative this year. Firearms season was a dud since there has been pretty much nothing out on my fiancee's family's farm this year. Got 99 rounds of .44 mag I could use, but no .44 mag! Might take my bow out once school lets out though.

    I thanks for the info, yeah I was not sure about the carbine it's not a rifle but not a pistol ether despite shooting pistol ammo.

    For the .357, what ammo brand would you recommend? All I can find is FMJ and FMJ Hollow Points.

    Hollow Points. You can use a 9mm handgun.

    FMJ are not legal and wouldn't be effective anyway, which is why they aren't legal. I'm not sure what you mean by FMJ hollow points. Can you post a link to the loads you are talking about?

    What makes you think a 45acp won't work? I've killed 5 deer in the past with a 45acp and all dropped in their tracks. Range from 15yd to 60yds. A 230 gr bullet has plenty of knock down power.
