The 225 Sierra GK is my favorite bullet out of my 20" barreled 350 Rem Mag. Killed 4 elk and numerous deer with that combo. Great bullet. Should work good at 358 winnie speeds.

Couple of elk apiece with the Sierra and Nosler 225’s.
Both worked perfectly. Only recovered one, a Sierra.
For an all around take em as they come .358 bullet, I’d take the Nosler partition.

I was planning to use a .358 for my annual elk hunt in 1996. Bought some of the new Barnes 180 grain X bullet on their recommendation and about 3.5-4" groups was the very best I could get. I had a 250 grain Speer load that left the muzzle at 2353 fps and would group 1.5-2" on demand so that's the girl I took. The afternoon of Oct. 14 about 12:30 I got my shot at about 50-60 yards. At the shot, he stumbled and traveled 50 yards and was down. Complete penetration combined with terrible destruction to the lungs and an unneeded blood trail that anyone with eyes could follow made me a believer in the 3fiddygreat. I've found it to be as deadly on deer with 200-225 grain bullets also and can't wait for deer season to try her again!

I've shot my last 2 elk with the 225 NPT out of the 35 Whelen they kill elk dead without blowing up the meat. MB

With the limited velocity of the .358 Win., just about any “decently” constructed cup and core or mono bullet should work quite well.... provided you stay within the bullet’s design limitations! I’m just an “unabashed” user of Barnes Bullets! memtb

If I ever get around to loading them the 180 gr Xs sitting on my bench will do well. But I have never had anything but a DRT on whitetail. Used the 200 gr pointed and RN Remington bulk bullets from Midway USA. I figure on my elk loads I will use the Nosler Partitions I bought several hundred of. Be Well, and kill Elk, Rustyzipper.

Damn, you have an 88 in 358...I'm jealous..hunting partner has one in 308 and always liked it. I'd take a 99 too, but had to settle years ago for my BLR.

I shot a deer with my 358 and the 200 Hornady SP at about 200 yards. My load was around 2550 fps and thought I'd maybe catch it. Nope, went through and busted out the opposite shoulder joint on the way out. I'd have no issue using it or the 225 Sierra load I have at about 2450.

My 99 shoots the Hornady factory loaded .250's very well...

I'm a little jealous too. My 88 is a 308 and also have a BLR .358 Win. Like them both. I shot a buck at about 30 yards with a Hornady 200 SP from my BLR. It broke the opposite shoulder scapula but was lodged against the ball joint. He started quartering away just as I pulled the trigger and ran for 30 or so yards. Retained weight was 149.4 grains / 75%.

Thanks for the bullet photos guys. You always wonder what it would have looked like if you could get one to stop in the off side. I like to let the air in though. Be Well, Rustyzipper.

Never used my 358 Hawkeye all weather for elk, but a man could do a lot worse than a 200gr TTSX at 2700 fps, the first and only load other than 200gr TSX at the same velocity I've ever shot through that rifle.

I’ve used the 225 Partition and Sierra GK a decent amount in my 358 and Whelen. Like Jud posted, the Sierra not be as pretty but man does it hammer animals. Blood trails from a 358 or Whelen are the coolest I’ve seen. Broad and lotsa volume..

I’ve literally never had a blood trail when using the Whelen. Even on grizzlies. They’ve all been down in sight. Never shot an elk with it though, just blacks and grizzlies, moose, and caribou. Only ever shot two critters with anything but a 250.
