Any one shooting 350 Legend?

Ooooh, that looks like a good one. Not just a good design but well made. The RG moulds that I have tried to cast with had burrs all over the grooves and required hours of filing, sanding, polishing, and tuning to make work but that one looks like it was GTG.

I ordered all remaining parts for my 50 Stste rifle today.

I went with a Faxon barrel. I never got answers from Boyds on there wooden forends. So Ill go with what I have and "trade up" later.

I got some rounds loaded last night with the 1680. Going to try to get out this weekend some time to get some #'s I don't think I will get as fast as what you got in your bolt gun. I have a 16" barrel. Not sure what your barrel is.

The bolt barrel is also 16", with a 3.5" linear Comp. but doubt that changes velocity.

I agree same exact loads you should aught be just touching my heals in velocity.

We are getting close to the season and I need barrel break in and load development!!

I have the new NOE hp loaded in same ladder as the 358430 for Sunday afternoon too!
Good luck my friend!

Wow! I LIKE IT! Anything goes in Texas but I find myself wanting a more traditional rifle form. I see a gas tube but no buffer tube, I assume semi-auto but has dual spring recoil springs/rods in the upper above the BCG like the Sig ARs with folding sticks had?

It sure does. The fleur was a giveaway but I couldn't figure iut the Monte Carlo until you said trap model. It would make sense to use off the shelf parts as much as possibe. The recoil system may even be the same as 1100 after looking on the web and seeing how the sawed-off bolt carrier pushes on the recoil piston via an angled rod, just like the 1100.

that is exactly how a browning model 50 works except the butt stock spring is adjustable so you can tune the spring pressure to your loads.
the super-X line by Winchester has a bolt and hammer that looks just like that too only it is powered by gas pushing on a rod under the bolt instead of direct to the top.

as long as you keep that thing clean it will run super reliably, the design has been around long enough for sure.

These MP- 359-220 cast are showing real real promise. Shooting better then many even in loads that dont shoot well! ;)

I havent shot alot of them and need more testing but these may prove best overall. I like the 358430 and its my best ever accuracy with a cast. But I feal drawn to this HP. Its smaller then the NOE 360-197. I fear even hardening it wont do as I expect at rifle vel. But the MP is smaller and different orofile. I have shot into wet news print and dont get expansion as soon or quickly. As more open designs.
