With the introduction of the 350 Legend cartridge, Winchester Ammunition adds to its lineup of high-performance rifle cartridges. Perfect for use in states that require a straight-walled cartridge for deer hunting, the new 350 Legend is fastest straight-walled rifle cartridge in the world, delivering more power with each shot than .30-30 Win., 300 Blackout or .223 Rem.

“The 350 Legend is a high-performing, straight-walled cartridge that dominates in velocity, energy, recoil and affordability,” said Matt Campbell, vice president of sales and marketing for Winchester Ammunition. “Winchester innovation began decades ago and it’s paramount that we continue to deliver meaningful, technology driven products that have a tremendous impact on the hunting and shooting sports industry.”

Other key features of this innovative new cartridge are:

  • Approximately 20 percent less recoil than .243 Win.
  • 20 more more penetration than .243 Win.
  • Less recoil than 450 Bushmaster
  • Uses a modified, straight-walled .223 Rem. shell case and a .357-inch bullet

 The 350 Legend round is initially offered in six variations:

  • Deer Season XP - 150-grain Extreme Point
  • Super X - 180-grain Power-Point
  • Hog Special - 180-grain Power-Point
  • USA White Box - 145-grain FMJ Flat Nose
  • Power Max Bonded - 160-grain Bonded JHP
  • Super Suppressed - 265-grain Open Tip


Winchester also announced a XPR bolt-action rifle, chambered in 350 Legend, packing all the features we’ve come to expect from Winchester’s XPR line, such as their exclusive MOA trigger system, a nickel Teflon coated 60-degree bolt, free-floating barrel, cross mounted recoil lug and advanced ergonomic stock design. The XPR rifle, combined with the new 350 Legend, is sure to be a winner both in the field and on the range.
