Re: Thougts on the 350 Legend?

I also have a Mini-14 that's a blast to shoot as well and I'd love to see a Mini 350. I think it would be a great item for deer, coyotes, and hogs and I'd snap one up the day it was available. I sent a message to Ruger's CEO asking for a Mini in 350 but it looks like my interest fell on deaf ears. ...

When they finally cut a barrel down inch by inch from say 24" down and on a sealed action type, ' aka real ballistics by the inch' I will be interested.
I think somewhere a writer did that with a Contender or Encore, or maybe a Handi-rifle, for several cartridges. I don't know which ones though.
