    Anyone have interest in building a Remington 700/350legend. Thoughts? We live in a Straight wall Cartridge state.

    I had no idea that there was such a thing as a "Straight Wall Cartridge State". -- Or a 350 Legend for that matter.:rolleyes: jd

    Unfortunately yet, lots of midwest states have a straight wall restriction for deer season. It sucks when you have to shoot a 357 Maximum, instead of the whole pile of normal cartridges

    They limit the cartridge case length. These are all areas that used to be "shotgun" only. I believe the length is 1.80.

    Dusty,

    Ive used a 444 marlin in a contender pistol for years. However I can get a 357 Max to shoot flatter and lest wind drift than a 444. I shooting 150gr cutting edge bullets they hammer deer from 20 yards to 400 yards

    350Legend is a 223 case with no taper running a .357 bullet.
    It's a pretty awesome little round.

    And I would send it to Andy at https://adarmscustomrifles.com/ to build it if I couldn't do it myself. I recommend him highly. Awesome work and a good guy to boot.

    Some states have a 1.8" case length limit. Bummer.

    Some states have regions that only allow a shotgun/slugs for deer hunting due to the populations or automibile/school bus activity and do not allow high power rifles in those areas. They've adopted the straight wall cartridge as the alternative to a shotgun or pistol. Many have picked up the 450 Bushmaster in a bolt action and now the newest 350 Legend. A .223 case with basically a .36 caliber projectile. Kicks about like a .223 with heavy bullets. Not real impressive beyond 200 yards but that's kinda why it was developed for suburban deer hunting

    Actually the 350 legend uses a 9mm barrel to chamber for this cartridge.

    I want to play around with one to see if its worth chambering in an XP for a nice straightwall pistol.

    Contenders in 357 Maxs work but an XP would be cooler

    Out of curiosity, how do you headspace a straight wall rimless case? Off the case mouth?

    I can't help but wonder what feed issues may or may not be encountered with Rem 700. There may be no issues at all, or there might be 2hrs worth.

    Haven't heard of any. Fed from 223 mags, they feed well. Just like the 450 BM and 45 Raptor feed from 308 mags. Just a slight feed lip adjustment on the mags if even that

    NY used to have a similar rule for pistols. Shotgun only, or pistol of 35 caliber or more. (Idiots who wrote that law were thinking 38 special). For a long time Contenders/XP in 35 Rem were dime a dozen. ;) I killed 19 deer with a Herrett. NY finally realized that the whole idea was dumb and most counties are now open to rifles....gasp.
