    Hello all. Apparently I am developing a mid-bore addiction. Have a 35 Rem load worked out as my introduction to reloading and seem to have immediately moved on to working something up for my .358 Win. Interesting little gun, is a rebored Rem 7600 with the barrel trimmed down to 19” wearing a red dot. Not a gun I’m expecting to be a tack driver out to 500m or anything, it’s a born and bred brush gun for deer and elk, possibly moose. Looked around at different bullets, starting with Speer 220gn FP. I think if I can get them to 2400 FPS and shooting 2-3 moa I should be good to go. I have BL-(C)2 and 4895 on hand with both CCI 200 and 250 primers. Was thinking about starting with the BL-(C)2 for the lower pressures and the 250 primers and see what I can get. Any suggestions on where to start?

    Thsnks.

    Oh great another 358 Win thread, as if I don’t have enough pressure to find and buy one.

    My sons savage wears a 358 win 19" barrel and does well with H4895.
    The man who had it before him did well with 3031 also

    Hey Spot, thanks for replying. What load is your son using with the H4895? Hodgon’s website is listing 43-47.5 grains for the 220 Speer, but no comment on primers and using a much longer test barrel than mine for their velocities.

    Don't recall right off. I'll ask. Believe was 43 gr. But i'll make sure.

    I’m running 225 SMKs with VV N140 in my .358 win.

    I have no experience with the 220 Speers so I’ll be curious to see your load results. BL-C2 would probably be a good powder for it.

    Hodgdon data shows H4895 giving somewhat higher velocities than BL-C2. Either should work well.
