When Winchester Ammunition introduced 350 Legend ammo, it was a welcomed sight for deer hunters, especially those living in states that require they use rifles chambered for a straight-walled cartridge. Before .350 Legend ammo, they were limited to using dated, oversized, or short-range ammunition. In just a few years, .350 Legend has become known as a powerful round with very soft recoil.350 legend ammo for sale

Its performance is often compared to the popular .223 Remington because it’s AR-compatible when you use a .350 Legend upper. Speaking only about rifle ammo, though, the 350 Legend bullet is much bigger. With a bullet diameter of .357 inches and a 1.71-inch long shell case, the total length of the 350 Legend cartridge is 2.26 inches.

On paper, the 350 Legend deer hunting round with a 150-grain bullet has a muzzle velocity of 2,325 feet-per-second and 1,800 foot-pounds of energy. And, a 145-grain Full-Metal Jacket load has a muzzle velocity of 2,350 fps and 1,778 ft-lbs of energy.

350 legend hunting ammo

DNRs in Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, and Ohio have taken into consideration that the flat topography of excellent Midwestern hunting areas does not lend itself to a well-suited backstop when the land lies near occupied houses and buildings. For that reason, it was decided that certain straight-walled cartridges provided added opportunity for gun hunters, while reducing the risk of overshooting a target. However, many of the existing straight-walled cartridges lacked modern elements such as a rimless design to enable their use in a variety of firearms.

So Winchester set its sights on developing a cartridge that would embody the qualities of straight-walled ballistics while being better suited to long guns.  The result is the 350 Legend.  Just in regard to its projectile, the 350 delivers a hunting bullet far-better suited to deer than many of the choices available for handgun cartridges: streamlined for flatter trajectory, large polymer tip for accelerated expansion, and a precision jacket and core for accuracy, penetration, and energy transfer.  All that is combined with mild recoil and a range compatible with the intent of trajectories desired by the DNRs.
