    Thanks. Got it on its way now. Should be getting everything in all at once.
    Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition.

    I picked up the 20" version last week. Just got some Winchester 145 gr plinkers to dirty the bore a little and some 400 Starline brass on the way plus the Lee C358-200-RF 2 cavity mold. Anybody loaded this boolit into the 350 Legend yet?

    I have shot some yes. That as well as the 358315 RN version

    The RN didnt do well with powders I tried. The RCBS358-200 is like your lee and shot pretty good for me.

    I borrowed a MP 220-359 HP Im Trying next (looks just like the bullets we are talking about.

    Nice lookin' boolits there CW!

    I cast and gas checked mine then dry sized them all before PC then after, did a lubed sizing to 0.001" over bore size.

    I decided to work up the load from scratch using Hogdons base with W296/H110 on the 180gr pill listed. I ended at 21gr of H110 on top of Federal SRP primers, and saw no evidence of re-flow or flattening, the case didn't seem to elongate either.

    I am impressed with the grouping I got at 50 yds, my red dot is 3 MOA and all 15 rounds ended under the dot with nice splatter (I shoot steel) stars spreading evenly. Group was about 1.5".

    Bear Creek made a nice upper, the barrel remains clean visually and I have a big ole' smile on my face!

    Gents, I really apologize for the ignorant question. I just barely started researching 350 Legend dies, so I apologize if this has been asked and answered already. I haven't done nearly the amount of reading on this subject yet as I should. But...

    Does anyone make a carbide sizing die for 350 Legend? My limited searching hasn't come up with one yet.

    Thanks for taking it easy on me and my laziness today.

    Hello Phil.

    No, not that I am aware of and it’s unlikely a cuss Winchester choose to taper the case by blowing it out a few thousandths at the web.

    I have read of guys sizing on 9mm or 357 Dies. Neither one will bring the case back to spec but might allow chambering albeit not good for brass life.

    Lining the brass isn’t a big deal.

    I'm loading the Lee bullet, haven't gotten great accuracy yet, but I've probably only shot 50 or so. I think I like how LG works with this bullet. What oal are you using?

    So, has anyone maxed out a 90-110gr pistol bullet in a .350L yet? Seems that you could really splatter some jugs/varmints with some JHPs at 2700+fps. Just cuirous. I haven't seen anyone try the lighter end of the spectrum yet.

    Just the 124gr pills from Barry's, they held together well at 2300 fps and punched nice holes in 16ga steel from 50 yds.

    I have the 90 and 110 grain molds but there is no way they will load in my AR even being seated to the edge of the heel.
