    I'm getting 2350 fps with 180s in my 16" max encore with RE 7.
    That's good enough for me. I'm working on a load with the 200 gr seira RN bullets for better penetration.
    It's become my favorite deer gun and still short with a suppressor on the end.
    If I didn't have max stuff already I might be interested, but not to the point of changing out what I already have.

    Alot of guys here https://mdws.forumchitchat.com/?forum=645266 using the 357AR basically a 357 max rimless using the Starline basic brass.
    Mad Dog Weapons Systems have made quite a few AR barrels and they also make Savage barrels, I'm having a barrel made for the 1.80 version using the Starline basic brass for the kids for deer hunting here in Ohio.

    1. It headspaces on the case mouth, which means minimal crimp. You can't headspace on a rebated rim.

    2. Did anyone else see the bore diameter of .355? Means you can only shoot 9mm bullets or cast, no? Bullets of .357 or .358 may result in pressure issues, and will certainly be disappointing for accuracy. Just like the .450 BM using .452s.

    180 grain bullets for a .35 caliber is very light. Be about like looking at the BCs of a .338 bullet being around 150 grains. Horrible BC. Guessing a 280-300 grain bullet would have a great BC with horrible velocities.
