    I have an 18 inch 350 Legend barrel ordered. I have all the other parts to build an upper. Got some ammo ordered also - cheap FMJ to test fire, rough zero, and source of brass. Box of 180 SP for hunt. Extra Leupold VX2 3-9x40 on hand. We will see how it works.

Mike Bellm has been going on about .357 Max for a long time, and has occasionally gotten manufacturers to do runs of brass.

    .350 Legend is a rimless Max, and should work as well as the Max does. However, if you don't need a straight wall cartridge I don't know why you'd use it.
    Starline does enough runs of .357 Maximum brass to keep it more or less constantly in stock. If I was in a straightwall only zone, I would argue that the smart money would be to get a Henry Single Shot re-chambered for .357 Max (or DIY with a rented reamer), and thus take advantage of the plethora of .357 components, and the ability to use .357 Magnum and .38 Special.
    I was into 10mm Auto before it sold out and went mainstream.

    The cartridge was introduced in April of this year, so not much info as yet.

    I'm looking forward to hearing how it works out for you.

    Christmas today - 350 Legend barrel plus a few other parts I need to build the upper arrived. A set of Lee dies arrived - and surprise - they have basic reloading data. Looks like powders that might be used in 300BO or 44 MAG. I have a bunch of 147 HP 9mm projectiles on hand to build practice loads after I shoot the basic Winchester 145 FMJ.

    350 Legend makes me think of a stretched 30 Carbine.
