I will hopefully have my 358 Winchester Ruger Hawkeye in about a week and once I get it and set it up I will post pictures of the rifle and the load work. I want to focus on two bullet weights and two specific bullets but open to other suggestions on bullets to use. First I will try 225gr Sierra Game King and Partition and later the 250gr Partition. The 225gr for all around use especially on deer, hogs, black bear, elk and moose and the 250 Partition on Brown if I get the chance.
I have some loads from some of you guys and friends who are getting 2500 - 2550fps with the 225gr and good accuracy. Should be fun working with the 358Win. I always do have fun at the reloading bench and the bench at the range, then fun in the woods and field seeing how my work will pay off.
Any of you who have some favorite loads that have not yet posted any of your favorite 358Win loads using 225gr or 250gr bullets that you have found to be accurate showing good velocities and would share them with me I would appreciate it. This would really help me hold down the time and the cost of load development.
I have in the past on this forum only posted my final work and did not post the trip on the way to the final good load. So no one saw my bumpy road and pit falls in obtaining my good hunting loads that I have posted in the past and might have thought, "this guy sure is lucky". Well, I plan on posting "The Good", The Bad", and "The Ugly" with this cartridge finishing with "The Good" hopefully. Thank you, pictures coming soon.
