Love the 356. I have a like new Winchester BB and a JES rebored Marlin 30AS that I chopped to 16.5 “. The Speer 180’s are devastating on whitetail.

New to the 356 win, but not 35 cal. - 35 rem, 358s, up to the Whelen, been my favorite cal for 35 years. I’ve recently started playing with the 225 gr woodliegh RN in my 356 win bigbore. I’m getting 2350 fps with this bullet using h4198. I flattened the tips and the bullets end up @ 223grs. and shoot into tiny little groups all the way out to 200 yrds.
I’ve also been playing with 200 grain fusions, these bullets were pulled from 35 whelen ammo, so were designed for much higher velocity. They start out pointed and after grinding the tip off they weigh 193 grs. I load these to 2550 fps and I’m getting good penetration in jugs (6) and perfect expansion. This will be my first season hunting with this rifle. Gonna start out with deer here in Kansas and if all goes well cow elk later in the fall.

A great design of balanced power. And 357 pistol bullets to huge stuff at what @310gr? I like the medium bores. I haven't met up with a 356 when I had the money. Be Well, RZ.

Key Georgia Boy,

Your 225 grain Woodleigh load looks perfect for Alaska. Does the crimp groove work ok as is? I recently started modifying some 225 grain Nosler Partitions for my .356 Big Bore. Had to flatten the nose and put a cannular on them, a bit time consuming. How did you flatten the nose? I am using a Ken Onion Knife Sharpener sanding belt and a 220 grain Speer as a example for length.

I have some WW 748 and X-Terminator for powder, but your H4198 load looks plenty good, if my powder does not work out and give me over 2,300 fps mv.

Moose season is almost here!

got a hold of 100 of the 225 grain Woodleigh's and the crimping grove is in the wrong place. So I will sell them as I have other choices like the Partitions I modified and a bunch of the Speer FN 220 grain bullets. I zeroed the little 1.5-5 Leupold a couple inches high at 100 yards with the 200 grain Shock Hammer bullets and a healthy charge of Ramshot X-Terminator. Recoil is very tolerable and less then my 30-06 and .338 loads and the claim is the Hammer bullets penetrate like a Barnes X and expand down to 1,500 fps mv.

Hoping to put one in to the lungs of a bull moose soon. If I do I will share the autopsy reports. If it performs as I hope I may have found my one load for the .356 and Alaska's big game. I also have about 6 pounds of WW 748 for the Partitions and 220 grain Speers.
