I have a Thompson Center Venture II in .350 Legend. The Win 180 power point cartridges upon firing leaves a fair amount of carbon streaking down the case nearly to the base. The Hornadys come out clean but are not quite as accurate. Both are about 1.5 MOA but for a 125 yard deer gun it will suffice. Would like to get some Hornady flex points but none are available.
Any thoughts on the Win carbon streaking? The Win bullets are .354, the Hornady is .355. Thanks

be aware no one can have just one. But my savage really likes the win 150's, the ruger the 170 handloads and 180 factory loads, the encore with a mgm barrel it don't care. The encore will shoot em all including the 180 358 bullets it really likes the158 hornady xtp's (357) but I don't know about shooting a deer with em. When the dust settles I'm hopping the 165 horn will be the bullet I settle on but right now you can't get anything to experiment with

I considered getting more for my daughters but they may not hunt this year, new baby etc. I may not reload as the factory Hornadys are accurate for our distances. There are 45-70s and 350 Legends for sale at our local gunshop as no one is buying them because they cannot get ammunition. I said they could reload, said can't get primers.

My youngest took his first deer with a 350 this fall. He Used an AR 15 SBR with a can I built. I used it the next weekend to take a doe... Hits like a 410 or even softer with the can on. No one is undergunned with a 350, yet it seems like the perfect round for small framed shooters and folks who are recoil shy.

I have seen 350 Legend ammo at Dunhams, Sportsman Warehouse, and the Dicks Sporting Goods that still sell guns/ammo.
