After rethinking what you're using this for, .357 is marginal for either black bears or mountain lions, but I'd rather have a bigger bullet. A 180 gr would even be better, and not a hollowpoint. Bears aren't built like people, they have thick skin and you need a bullet that penetrates. Hardcast or jacketed soft point.
Look at Buffalo Bore.
