Default Re: The .358 WInchester - An Interesting Cartridge

So far, I've "settled" on the Pro Hunter for deer hunting but it's tough to settle on one as I'm getting some good results from about 4 bullets in the 180-200 grain range. I had just worked with the 180 Speer and was getting 3 shot groups of .75" and 2600+ fps. I'm thinking that FP will put a serious hurting on a lot of creatures. I haven't worked with the 220 Speer as much..but have some other loads I'm looking at trying. I like the idea of the 358 and FP bullets though.
And yes I've gotten better accuracy thus far with the flat base bullets . I think the only boat tail I've worked with is the 225 Gameking and the best group so far is a 5 shot 2" group and I've almost went through one box already. I just can't seem to get the accuracy out of the GK's (read boattails ) in several of my rifles that I do with the FB's. I think for now I'll work a few I have on hand before I try others...the 220 Speer and 225 TSX and see how they do. It's a fun round to shoot and it's really hooked me on the 35 calibers.
