That is basically a rimmed version of the .350 Legend, I do believe. Correct me if I'm wrong, but both .350 & .360 use .357-8" bullets, and both cases are 1.8". For comparison, the .357 Maximum's case length is 1.6". Perhaps one could convert the new S&W X-frame in .350 Legend, to also shoot the .360, much like shooting .45ACP in moon clips in a .45 Auto Rim gun.

This is going to sell well for Michigan. .195" longer than the Max!!

I believe they named it appropriate. Buckhammer

Remington needs to get a straight walled 7600 out. Then I'll be excited to spend some money.

.350 legend bullets are .355" as loaded by the factories. I hope the rumors are true about the .360, I'd be first in line for a levergun so chambered.

Basically a straight wall rimmed .35 Remington in terms of performance.

If this is legit I have a Marlin 30-30 going to Jes as soon as there's a reamer available, I have a good supply of .358 Speer 180 & 220 gr fp's and 200gr FTX bullets

I've been reloading and shooting the 35 Remington for about 3 years. I warm it up a bit to 2150 with Sierra 200 grain soft points. I've only killed one deer with it but it thumps them hard. It makes a steel target dance at 200 yards too.

The 35s one weakness is that little pissant shoulder. If you don't have your sizing dies just right, you'll have chambering problems or short brass life. The buck Hammer solves that problem with essentially the same ballistics and you get a rim to boot.

I hope the cartridge catches on because there's an awful lot to like about it.

Sarge,
I agree! There is a whole lot to like, especially in a levergun.

Maybe new 358 bullets will be developed for this cartridge. It sure does get old routinely killing animals with the same old 200gr Rem RNCL, 180gr Hornady SSPB, and Speer 180gr HCFN bullets. 🤣🤪

Thanks, Dinny

I wonder what mods will be required to make it feed?? The 30-30 never was loaded with 180gr or 200gr bullets and the case is longer than 1.8". Case geometry and balance plays a role in how the carrier does it's job.

That would sell. I'd like to see a new 7600 period

I suppose this will be different enough that the 357 Maximum shouldn't be fired in the chamber. Looks like the Maxi case is a good bit smaller at the base.

Yes - if it's built on a .30-30 case then the Max has a significantly smaller case head. I can't see it being significantly different in ballistics than the .357 Max. If Remington had worked with a rifle manufacturer to bring out a lever action in .357 Max and then put proper bullets with it (Speer FNSP is the sweet spot - or even the Remington 200 gr. Corelokt) they wouldn't have had to spend time and money developing this new one. This will likely appeal to hunters who want to use a lever in states with cartridge limitations, such as Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan. I'm in Iowa and thankful that the DNR is starting to come to their senses with the approved change to bottle-necked cartridges flinging a .350"-500" projectile that came into effect last year. Until then I used a .357 Max in an Encore pistol with an 18" barrel during the late muzzleloader season. It runs my cast 190 RanchDog LFNGC or the Speer 180 gr. FNSP out at 2100 fps with 30 gr. AA1680 and puts them under 2" at 200 yards. It's been a deer hammer for us. Because of the change in regs (and because my 19 year old daughter turned to me last year and said, "This gun is mine now. Go buy another one for you.") I picked up an XP-100 in .350 Remington Magnum about a year ago. It gains 3-400 fps over the Max and I'm comfortable shooting at deer 300 yards off instead of the 225 yard self-imposed limit with the .357 Max. IF the ballistic gain is significant I might consider sending the Max barrel back to MGM and have it reamed out for this cartridge, but then I might as well make it a .358 Winchester because case availability would be a moot issue with all of the .308 Win brass out there and in my reloading room. I hope this takes off, but if Remington continues with the same pattern of "marketing" and "support" that goes all the way back to the .244 Remington (6.5 Rem Mag, 18" barreled .350 Rem Mag, anemic .260 Rem factory loads, and the now defunct RSAUM line), this won't even make a flash in the pan. It will only be of interest to lever gun aficionados and every Iowa deer hunter I know that wanted to set down their slug gun picked up a .350 Legend or .450 Bushmaster of some sort because the factory ammo is available in every store that sells ammunition.

Someone posted on another forum that the 30-30 case is wider at a certain point than the new .360 which might mean a rebore is not doable. But I’m sure JES will give the lowdown

Looks like an interesting cartridge. Essentially a straight walled and rimmed 35 Remington. Hopefully brass supply is better than 35 Remington is...

That sucks maybe Ruger/Marlin will come out with one but that may take awhile, I guess I'll have to give the Henry a try.

It looks to me like they have just re-invented the oldest wildcat, the 35-30, that was used over 100 years ago to give new life to worn out 30-30s and 32 Specials. The only difference I can see is they must have reduced the case diameter, or tapered it to remove the need for the very slight bottleneck of the 35-30, but I/m not sure. I have one in a 30-30 336 Marlin that had a damaged bore, so I had JES rebore do their magic. It has very slightly less case capacity than the .35 Remington. All I do is reform 30-30 cases by basically making them a straight wall, and I then have to make a slight bottleneck just to hold the .35 cal bullets. It is a nice deep woods cartridge and carries a good thump with 200 grain + bullets.
