It?s only .5gr over Hodgdon book max and a compressed load or right at touching if I remember correctly.
I seat long which gave me a little more room.

Zee,
is that the same load for both guns? how much velocity do you lose from rifle to pistol barrel?

I was incorrect on the pistol length. I just checked and it?s 12 inches instead or 14 inches. The rifle barrel is 24 inches.

The 200gr FTX load with 48.5gr H4895 gets 2,646 fps out of the rifle and 2,326 fps out of the pistol. So, 12 inches difference in barrel length equates to 320 fps difference in velocity.

I also have a 200gr Hornady RN load using the same 48.5gr powder charge that moves at 2,271 fps from the paltry 12in barrel.

thank you zee- i was hoping to be able to get 2400 fps out of a 15" and it seems like it would make it.

Zee,

Are you running your 358 win on dedicated brass or are you resizing 308?

Good to know.
Thanks. I found a factory box of hornady 358 win in a gun/pawn shop in my travels. I plan on resizing 308 for the bulk of my ammo.
