Default .351 test load info.

HELLO, glad to see this interest in the 07 winchester[.351]. for what its worth hear are some of my findings.[ lee mfg.] will make you a custom bullit sizeing die,i had them make me a .352 . i thought reasnable in price @$25.00 +/- . so far i have used it on .357 & 358 jacketed and my cast .358 rn bullets works great, you have to lube the jacketed, then back the die out half way to start then screw it down as you go , it helps in the leverage or caming action on the press. bullits come out perfect .352. so far the best bullit i have found is one for a .35 cal spire s.p..have to cut 3/16 of tip to get it to fit in mag. and feed properly in the gun. long way to go in testing but its a start,and fun to boot. i have used the load data in lymans #45 book . note! that .35 cal with17.5 of 2400 powder shot a 3.5 " group @100 yds. 1800fps. ---- Thanks charles

Great info, Charles. I like it when someone posts a way to get things done when few options are available.

When you get a moment, I invite you to stop at the Introductions Thread and tell us about yourself.

If Starline ever puts the .360 Dan Wesson brass back in production, folks would have an ideal starting point for .351SL brass. Just trim it .035" and run it thru a .351 sizing die. The 180gr WLN+P-GC from Beartooth Bullets (and maybe even a 200gr SAECO #351) resized from .358" to .352" should work well too.

I'm going to look around for a .351. They are cool little rifles, and it would be fun to load for.

How long has it been since they ran a batch?

Almost three years now that I know of; perhaps longer. According to their website, they are awaiting sufficient backorders to justify returning this item to production. Starline .414 SuperMag brass is perfect for the .401 SL too. All it needs is a .050" trimming to work perfectly.
