Hornady's brand new addition to their American Whitetail line of ammunition, this 350 Legend round is loaded with their legendary InterLock® bullet that has been a deer hunting favorite for decades. 350 Legend American Whitetail ammunition combines generations of ballistics know-how with modern components and the technology you need to take the buck of a lifetime!
InterLock® bullets feature exposed lead tips for controlled expansion and hard-hitting terminal performance. Bullets used in American Whitetail ammunition feature Hornady's pioneering secant ogive design and exclusive InterLock® ring — a raised ring inside the jacket that is embedded in the bullet's core that keeps the core and jacket locked together during expansion to retain mass and energy.
Loaded to conventional velocities, the powder used for 350 Legend American Whitetail ammunition is matched to each load for optimum pressure and consistency, ensuring each load is compatible with semi-autos as well.
Like all Hornady ammunition, 350 Legend American Whitetail rounds use the highest quality cases and primers available. Consistent components translate to consistent shooting in the field.
I bought a Ruger American go wild 350 legend and i shot the winchester 350 legend standard FMJ target rounds out of it and it loaded and cycled great. But when i switched over to the Hornady 170 gr hunting round it seemed to have trouble to load it in the gun and at one point it got jammed in the gun and i couldnt open the bolt.so i had to take the stock and every thing else off of the gun to try and open the bolt and finally i got it opened. Other than that it was a great round, i got two shots in a two inch grouping on the target.
This ammo would not feed or cycle in my AR-15. If loaded one at a time it fired ok. Would work in a bolt action. I was shooting in a new 350 legend upper. I thought it might be defective. Bought some Winchester 180 grain Power Point and it performed well. This ammo if for bolt action only.
Bought the 170gr interlock 350 legend ammo for whitetail hunting this year, along with a new Savage Axis rifle. 100 yard, 3 shot groups were covered by a dime. I shot 4 deer this season, all between 80-100 yards from the blind. Two broadside, one quartering, and one through the shoulder, each with full penetration everytime.
My father in law also purchased these with same results. He took a chest shot that broke the spine continued down, exiting behind the ribs, and back in through the rear quarter. Found it on the exit of the ham under the skin. Nice size holes, and the bullet had 95% weight retention, 2x its diameter. I'm sold on them.
Very accurate and light recoil. My daughter and younger brother killed two big does with these this year. One doe dropped on the spot and was about 80 yards and the other ran maybe 20 yards and was about the same distance as the first doe.
Penetration is very good, went through both shoulders of one of the deer and the other was a complete pass through behind the shoulder.
Good ammo, feeds and cycles well. Added the 145 gr fmj to order after initial order was placed. It shipped that same day. Received in 2 days. Excellent customer service and quick shipping as mentioned. Packed well.
Quick target test proves minute of deer @ 50 yds. Will target shoot further in next spring, target days are over. Cold weather an deer for now. Good place to shop and do business. Some of the best prices on most items.
