    Does anyone have any experience or shot a 350 legend? Just looking for some more info on this round other than what I found on the internet.

    Well Ben here is a deer shot in Ohio this week with one,out of a AR 15 that we have helped a guy on, here is how it shoots at 300yds with factory ammo.P.S. it's a very much so underestimated round hat's off to Winchester on this one.

    Ive been running 357 Max's for years with the new 350 my Dad got one and I got an upper to try. Both are very accurate, my father shot a deer at 200 it was DRT. My Fioncee shot one at 250 yards with the AR and it went about 20 yards. So far I'm very impressed.

    I also wish it was 357/358 because there is more bullet selection

    When they 1st came out a major retailer was trashing them as inaccurate. Probably because of their large 450 B stock that shoots well and is very accurate with factory ammo. The small sampling that I've done indicates that there is no accuracy issues with the 350 L. Cheap CVA single shots stack them on each other. Most of these rifles don't have high quality scopes on them and still shoot very well. The people shooting deer with them indicate VERY fast kills. The biggest factor that I've seen in choosing a 350 over a 450 is recoil. A 450 needs a muzzle brake, a 350 doesn't.

    May I ask what diameter bullets do you think it uses?

    It does use the .357 bullets. If you want more weight choices, than the factory ones, you can cast lead ones, add base cups and play with many style/types.

    It uses .355 9mm bullets, atleast all the things i read says .355 groove diameter and midway lists 350 legend .355” bullets for reloading it

    Edit: i realize the 350 legend and .357 mag share same bore and groove diameter. Its confusing to me. Several sources online say .357 bullets wont chamber in a .355 match spec barrels. But you can use them in .357 mags?

    Well, This has nothing to do with the 350 Legend Per Se. However I used to shoot my 38 Super with 9 mm bullets and .357 bullets. the 9mm actually shot better. So for a 350 Legend I would try both .355 and .357 bullets and shoot the best grouping or best preforming bullet.

    0.357" bullets are not going to work unless you use Starline brass. It is thinner than all other available brass.
