    New Rifle Round

    Anybody shooting the new 350 Legend ? I wonder how it compares to the 357 Maximum.

    Not being compatible with standard AR/5.56 Magazines has sort of dampened my enthusiasm for it.

    Interesting option for hunting. But, I have other rifles for that. I has it all over .357 magnum from a 20" barrel, though, and I've killed deer to 80 yards with my Rossi 92. It should be a good choice for pigs under 100 yards.

    This is the conundrum of the AR15 for me and lots of others. There's only so much you can do for power in the gun. .223 is really ideal, but it's no big game round, so folks either work with fancy controlled expansion bullets and hope for the best (like me), or they try something with more bullet/power like the .350 Legend, one of the more latest and greatest designs. They all have their drawbacks and no one has yet designed a .30-06 equivalent round for the gas impingement AR15 design. Oh, you can get a .308 in an AR10, but then you lose what I really like in the AR platform, the light weight, handy little carbine. It becomes something danged near as heavy as an M1A.

    I've sorta quit looking for an upper for the M4 and am happy with my actual hunting rifles for hunting. I've decided the AR really isn't the best platform for that. I have a little Remington stainless Model 7 that weighs about the same as my M4 and fires a .308. THAT is my preferred hunting rifle. I could actually use that this fall on my elk hunt (if I get well enough to make it), but elk take a bit of killing, so I'll be using my heavier, but more deadly Savage 110 in 7mm Remington Magnum firing a 160 grain Nosler Partition. Though I've shot one deer with my M4, I don't use it as a hunting rifle. It's a political statement mostly and a lot of fun on my 100 yard gong target. I have gone out turkey hunting with it (legal here), but I've yet to take a turkey with it.

    yea to each their own but until we start having Ninja Deer that are trained in Black opps I think the AR's will remain at home when it comes hunting time for me.

    Yeah. No way I would ever consider my AR for hunting; just a 22 caliber running “bat outta hell” speed. I can use my AK and use a 30 caliber bullet instead!

    I've said it on other threads about the AR (for hunting) and the .350 "Legend" - if you want to hunt with the M4 platform, go either .450 Bushmaster or .458 Socom. They will get the job done. .300 Blackout is also a very valid option but is, for the most part, ballistically similar to the 7.62x39 unless you are suppressing and launching heavy bullets. My state has laws on how many rounds you can have in the gun and on your person so this rules out the higher capacity that the platform can support. With that in mind, there are certainly better platforms for hunting, with respects to accuracy, weight and cost (Savage Axis .308 Win, for example, can be had for just over $300 with optics).

    No thanks. There are so many great, already well established and affordable, calibers out there for anything anyone would want to do. They say "is has less recoil than .30-30", well if you have an issue with .30-30's recoil, you need to not shoot and go home and get out your play dough.

    Yeah, and don't even THINK about hunting geese with a 10 gauge or hunting bear with a .338 Win Mag.
