    There is...….This is very much like the .35 Remington with pointy bullets.

    Very true. Difference being that the 35 Remington isn’t a straight wall cartridge. That’s one of the biggest motivators behind the cartridge. To make it legal for use where other cartridges aren’t.

    This new cartridge by Winchester sounds like an up-dated .351 W.S.L. only being rimless than semi-rimmed. Will be interesting to see if it will be a successful cartridge.

    The 350 Legend is primarily a solution for folks who are restricted to shotguns or straight walled pistol type cartridges for deer hunting. I can see no benefit for the average Kentucky hunter. But I am old and semi-set in my ways so YMMV.

    I'd love to have an upper for my AR, not that I need one. I just think an AR in 35 caliber would be neat.

    Agree with Semp on this one... It will probably sell a few magazines and will be a short lived fad (maybe a bit longer in some shotgun/pistol cartridge only mid-western states)...no real advantage over existing calibers...

    Hard to beat 270, 308, 30-06 and 30-30/35 Remington for deer...
    For the record, my primary rifle is a 7mm Remington Magnum

    Anyone else remember being told the super short magnums would be the next big thing?

    I think bullet expansion will be an issue.
    I've watched several videos and have yet to find one that shows bullet expansion shooting ballistic gel.
    The only videos that I have seen show no expansion so far.

    I bought one a few weeks ago. It is a fun caliber to shoot. It is a little quieter than my 243, with less recoil too. It doesn't have the range of a the smaller center-fire rifles but in most of the places where I hunt it is fine. I'll be glad to get some game with it instead of just shooting targets.
    Mine is the Ruger ranch rifle with the tan stock, 16 inch barrel and a Nikon red dot sight. It is a good short, light weight little rig that will work fine on all day hunts when on the move. If I was still hunting wild hogs it would be perfect. Maybe bears someday.

    I looked at a Ruger in the .350 caliber. It was a bolt gun of course with a camo stock and a bronze cerakote finish. Good looking rifle and had a muzzle break. Bolt was crisp and the trigger was nice but didn’t seem as good as the Savage Accutrigger. Overall I loved it. Be a nice rifle for thicker areas

    I think Colorado was as well but they modernized.
