I have to admit that I am somewhat intrigued by this cartridge. It's looking more and more like I'll be back to doing some Ohio hunting and I've already hunted Indiana with plans to go back. I've looked for quite a while for a company who offered the .357 Maximum in a lever action rifle. The fact that this will be offered in a bolt gun is what does it for me. I just prefer a bolt action rifle over a lever if possible. Ruger offers the .357 mag and .44 mag in their model 77 rifles but this round appears to have a bit more steam and velocity.
BTW, in Indiana there is only a straight walled cartridge restriction if you are hunting on public land. And their restriction carries a maximum length of 1.800 inches as well. On private land in IN, you can use bottlenecked cartridges as long as they are either .243 or .308 calibers. I am a big fan of the Winchester Power Point bullets also. The 180 power point offering in this .350 Legend sounds like a winner for me for deer hunting. When this is offered, I'm pretty sure you will see me getting one.
