Default 350 legend

Is there any single shot rifle maker that will make this caliber. It would be good for primative hunting in Louisiana.

Just buy a 357 Maximum.

1) Its a proper 35 caliber barrel.

2) Rims are better suited to a SS action.

3) MANY more readily available projectiles.


You can thank me Later. 😉

I've seen the CVA Scout V2 being sold locally in .350 Legend.

All of my favorite creatures have white bottoms.

Pretty sure you could get a custom TC Encore barrel in 350 Legend.

I had just ordered one CVA Scout V2 in 350 Legend from Buds.
I was debating between 357 Max or 350 Legend. For the 357 max, I was going to buy a Henry ss in 357 mag and convert it to max. But I already have that arrangement in an H&R handy rifle. So, no matter how much I wanted another 357 max, it would not have made sense in my case. So, I went for the CVA Scout v2.
Any one has any experience with this type of rifle?

I forgot to mention but I also have a contender barrel in 357 mag that I could convert to max at a later date.

Ive got my cva scout v2 in 350 Legend.
It looks nice just a little rough to open compared with my tc contenders and encore. Added some oil and seem to help some. The part that is related to the take down has some not so pretty weldings. It looked as if someone performed a tack weld, compared to the barrel action hinge connector that it is professionally done. I will check some 180 gr factory loads to see how it shoots.

Camba,
I'm interested in seeing a side by side ballistic comparison of the Maxi Handi and the CVA Legend. My suspicions are similar to CW's - why get a Legend when, in a single shot rifle, the Maxi gets it done with ease? I killed a 190lb black bear this year with my Maxi and lead cast bullets. I can't imagine a better 35 caliber straight wall cartridge for a single shot rifle.

Thanks, Dinny

I reload and shoot 348 Win, 358 Win, 6.5 Grendel, 30-06 Springfield, 300 BLK, 44 Mag, 357 Maximum, 9mm, 45 ACP, 45 Colt, 225 Win and 35 Rem

I went to the range today and after I sighted in, I shot a 5-shot group were 4 shots made a one small ragged hole and one flyer that went about 1/2” lower than the ragged hole. That was at 50 yards. I will place a picture later on that.
For an out of the box rifle, shooting the Win 350 legend factory load with 180 gr power point at 2150 fps (from memory but it is close to that).
I have bought some 180 gr speer .358 cal bullets that I will try with the 357 max.
I have not made any groups that small with the max yet but I had only used H4227 powder or other pistol powders and nothing serious.
I am not abandoning the max, i am adding diversity to my shooting stuff.
I came hone after the range and I reload some 9mm 115 gr jhp over some 2400 powder. I used my Hornady 35 cal neck sizer and then I use the 9mmP carbide sizer die for less than 1/2” and then I flare the mouth to seat the bullet with the 9mmP bullet seater. The loaded cartridges look good! I will find out later this week how they do. I don’t expect any good accuracy as all I wanted to do was to see if I can mix and match dies to reload this round; and I fid it.
I will add more info next time.
