No.

But a .350 Legend Reamer will clean up a .357 Max Chamber.

Yeah. The Legend is a tenth of an inch longer and a little wider at the base. But they are essentially twins as far as ballistics go.

Curious on this too. Also was this a Handi rechamber?

Not really. The neck on the max is bigger than the legend. Also, the pilot would be "loose" in the bore of a standard 357 max barrel and the legend needs a sharp step from neck to throat for headspacing. I doubt the step would be correct after a rechamber.

Going from 357 mag to 350 legend might work. It would be best done with a floating pilot reamer and a proper pilot for the barrel bore.

Actually worked out well for me with a little thought and help from Dave Kiff at PTG:
