I'm a big 35 caliber fan, and I really wanted to like this cartridge when it came out.  But, it just seems a little 'meh' compared to other options.  If I needed a 35 caliber straight walled cartridge, I'd probably go with a 357 maximum before this.  Maybe a 357 mag in a leveraction - because I like the platform, and I'm getting an extra 150-250 fps out of a carbine length barrel compared to a handgun.

And for true 35's I'd rather shoot a 35 rem, 356 win, or 358 win...

I'm guessing this cartridge will probably fade away.

Yeah there is a reason I don't have a 350 Legend.  Already have the 356Win, 35 Whelen, 357 Magnum, etc.   Am just jealous the .355 bullets are so available compared to .358......

356 Win is my favorite woods carry rifle for scouting/defense/western forest hunting, frequently carry it instead of a revolver (my model 627 is 2.75lb).  Comes at 6lbs 0.8oz with red dot sight.  220gr Speer Hot Cor.  Will be loading 225gr Hawk bullets once they finally arrive.   

I think the 350 Legend will survive as a niche in the midwestern states that it was designed to be legal in.

Agreed the 350 Legend will survive, because of the restrictions in those midwest states.

There are just better choices that are legal here, so its hard to find a reason to want one.

Not enough power to kill a moo cow at point blank between the eyes, the guy tried a couple of times, cow ran off finally…

don’t get your panties back n a bunch because the 350 legend sucks…. Tough cow *censored*ty cartridge

The 350 Legend is a great caliber for deer out to 200 yards.
Just like any other caliber if a jackazz places a bad shot a house cat will take off after being shot.
Sounds like that is what happened to this poor shot cow.
Ive killed a ship load of downed cows when I worked at a 650 cow dairy farm with a 38spl Smith & Wesson 642.
No comparison to a 350 Ledend so I call BS on this one.
Every cow that I shot went down immediately after being shot.

I actually use a 350 for putting down downers on our dairy. Works great, very quick and clean. Have alot of options and this is now our go to. Also helps ammo is pretty easy to find.

Yes, I agree on the 356 win.  When I do hunt with rifles, the 356 is usually the first one I grab.  I like Marlin's action.  And I've loaded up a few 'grouse loads' with .357 SWCs.  My more recent big game load is a 203 gn solid copper Hammer bullet.  They shoot well, but I have yet to shoot a critter with it.

Hammer does make some .355 for the legend.

The nice thing about the true 35 calibers, is you can load 357 pistol bullets for plinkers and small game.  I've got loads of those - flat nosed and HPs suitable for tubular mags.  Some of the 35 bullets intended for the 35 Remington can be too lightly constructed for a 356/358/35 whelen.
