Re: Shark vs Buck knife

Got mine when I was in the 10th grade and carried it to school every day. Best friend got one too, but lost it a few years later when out plowing on the tractor. Amazing enough, two years later, when plowing, he spotted it, a bit worse for the elements, but still in good shape. You could shave with ...

Re: 350 Winchester Legend

Pretty much a rimless 357 max. A drawback I can see , is that it uses a proprietary case with a rebated rim @0.390" base dia. vs the 223/5/56 base dia. of 0.376", so cannot make brass from the plentiful 223/5.56 cases. Oh, and that you can't use carbide dies to reload the thing. I hope they release ...

Re: 2.5 grains of clays in 357

I would guess around 750fps and might be concerned about it making it down your 24" tube. If you do try it, take a rod (I use brass 1/4" welding rod--30" long IIRC) and hammer to remove the stuck bullet. IIRC, Clays is around Red Dot/Promo speed.

Wouldn't think it would be 357 max brass as nickle plated max brass is fairly rare. Even if it was, it would size just fine in a 357mag sizer as thats what I use for my 357max's. I would think more than likely an oversized chamber from whatever it was shot in.

Last suggestion was also the 35-30. Call it the 358 Henry. Maybe its straight enough some of the states that require a straight case would OK it.
