350 LEGEND

Designed and launched by Winchester in 2019, the 350 Legend was developed for deer and hog hunting. From Guns & Ammo Magazine: In June 2014, Michigan’s Natural Resources Commission (NRC) approved the regulation to allow the limited use of certain rifles capable of using .35-¬caliber or larger ammunition with straight-¬walled cartridges that have a minimum case length of 1.16 inches and a maximum case length of 1.8 inches to take deer in the limited firearms deer zone. In March 2017, the NRC recommended the law’s sunset provision be removed “entirely.” These dimensions were aimed at making sure that no bullet of that diameter fired from that type of case would travel far enough from the muzzle to pose much of a threat to potentially nearby residents. While this law started in Michigan, it has since spread to other states including Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania. It was also developed as an alternative to the popular 450 Bushmaster but in a format that was more shooter-friendly, less expensive and more appropriate for deer hunting.
