I like to shoot all my SS rifles whatever caliber, including my CVA 350 Legend. Shot better than I can out of the box! My Son in Law shot his first ever deer with it using factory 180 gr ammo. Shot where he pointed and doe dropped right there!

I love single shots!

I took my cva 350 legend for some reloads workout.
1. I tried some 115gr 9mm pistol bullet over some 2400 powder. Not bad but I did not like the functioning.
2. Tried 180gr Speer jsp (0.358” de ia.) got a vertical string group of over 3” at 50 yds.
3. Tried the Lee 357-200-RF over 20.2 gr of H110 with LRP (non m magnum primers) and I’ve got a tiny group. I need to reproduce that load but using magnum primers. I wonder what velocity that was but it hit about 1.5” high at 50 yds; same as the 180gr factory ammo I shown above.
I will load some pictures when I get a chance.

BTW, I also tested the 357 Maximum H&R rifle with same load and components for comparison.

I have used many Maxi loads in my Legend. They have all been light.

Default 350 legend

The same component recipes I used in the 350 L were also used in reloading the 357 max.
The 350 Legend did better in the 158gr jsp and better in the Lee 204gr gas checked. The 357 max did relatively better than the 350 L with the 180gr jsp Speer.
I will post pictures later on that.

Today's range test for the 350 Legend CVA Scout V2 rifle.
I am liking this rifle/caliber combination!

I happily found a great cast plinking kid with 4198 powder and a SAECO cast 180 bullet. It shoots almost 1500 FPS and shoots under 1” @ 50.

Yesterday I cast a new bullet. It’s profile is nearly exactly a RCBS 358-200-FN Profile but it’s a MP Mold dropping 220g @ 359 diameter. It’s nose section is .349 so a bore rider. I am hoping it will work in the RUGER Bolt that is my own Legend. Being a HP I can ask hardness to get expansion where I want it velocity wise.

Default 350 legend

I am getting good results with aa2230 powder for the 170gr GDFP and the Speer Ho-Cor 180 gr jsp with cci-450 primers. In my rifle (cva scout v2 350 legend) does not show any signs of pressure with a compressed load of 32.2gr of as2230.
I am wondering how fast they are at this load.
I need to take my chrony to the range to get velocities for my load data. I will share when available.

Disclaimer:
This load works fine in my rifle. Not all rifles are created equal so work up your loads.
