350 Legend by Winchester

Recommended Posts

Well, I found the answer to one question and the AR guys ain't gonna like it. The 350 Legend will NOT work in standard 5.56 AR mags. Apparently there are some small ridges inside the mag at the cartridge neck that have to be removed in order for the straight walled case to fit and feed properly. 

Check at about the 3:15 mark.

But still. its an easy caliber change.

Sounds a bit like the 300 blackout, which now has dedicated mags.

 Hitting deer with a 35 Remington works as well as the 350. If flat wall AR mags get launched by like Pro Mag or some one like that, maybe this will get legs.

Yes Sir. I also found out that 350 Legend will require different mags. I think I may just stick with my AR-10 in .308 Win since I just solved the low gas and short stroking issue I was having. I was using a Superlative Arms Adjustable Gas Block on it, their design has a port vent to vent excess gas. Well, it was venting too much gas and short stroking. Replacing it with a Standard Gas Block fixed that issue.

Actually, I really don't have much interest in an AR in this caliber. I'm just not much of an AR guy. :shrug:

What I'm waiting for is a more or less standard, straight stocked, semi-auto in 350. I'm thinking Ruger's Mini-14 would be ideal. That is IF its accurate. Something that the Mini-14 is noted for lacking. :shake: If it can't regularly do 1" or less at 100 yards, I wouldn't be interested. 

A handy trapper length lever action would be nice too. :D I'll just wait a while and see where the 350 lands. ;)

      OK folks I have an itch to build another AR style firearm and am looking for some advice on what to build next.  I would like to stick to 5.56 so I don’t have to acquire a bunch of different ammo and with my usage I don’t see an immediate need for anything larger or longer range.  I have a rugged surge waiting in jail for me and an extra SBA3 brace laying around.  
      I am thinking of doing a 14.5” mid-length build, or even an AR-9 to match my pistol ammo.  
      Right now I have:
      16” mid-length 5.56 with a 1-6 optic 
      10.5” carbine-length 5.56 pistol with an RDS (HD)
      7.5” pistol-length 5.56 pistol with and RDS (beater truck gun)

      Well Ruger has officially ceased production and removed from product listing the SR556 and SR762.   The Piston guns are no more.   

      I thought they were great guns, but the proprietary piston/handguard was a killer for them, I think.
