I know they are smaller .355" in dia. Just wondering if anybody has tried them in 357Max? It would give us more bullet choices.

I'll never for the life of me figure out why they wanted to create a 35 caliber rifle cartridge in .355"/9mm diameter as opposed to one that could use tried and true .357" and .358" bullets.

I haven't tried them, but a bunch of guys have...you can use them, check accuracy, and decide if you like them...they are discussing this now on Reeder's forum (well using the different bullets)

THERE IS A SPANISH SAYING: LOCO SI PERO PENDEJO NO, WHICH BASICALLY MEANS "I MAY BE CRAZY BUT I AIN'T STUPID". EVERYBODY MAKES .358 HUNTING BULLETS, IF YOU WANT .355 HUNTING BULLETS WHO DO YOU HAVE TO TURN TO?

Brought to you by the people that introduced the wssm cartridges. Hey, at least the 300 wsm survived.

A dying attempt to make it. Same with their 325 wsm. At least the 325 wsm was a good thought/round.

Oddly enough if you listen/watch videos or podcasts on the subject they list it as .357 caliber. When American Hunter reviewed it they did the same thing.

Not 100% sure but I think they are trying to present it as the larger caliber because they took themselves out of the market in some straight wall cartridge states that require the round to be .357 caliber or larger.

Curious to see how long it will be around and how effective it really is on game. I'm interested in it but not enough to buy one just yet.

I just picked up an AR barrel in 350 Legend. May try it over the 300 BO.
not sure yet.

When it came out my initial feeling was to stay with the tried and true Max. After reading this I believe I was initially correct. I have some of the Furry Custom bullets I am trying out and early loads indicate they have potential. They make 158, 170, and 180 pointy .358 bullets for the Max. So I am going to see what I can do with them.
