358 Savage Lever Action
I`m experimenting with this rifle and the dies were hard to find.
As of now I have found 170 grain gives a good distance with a nice result.
Will let you all now how my findings go.
Thanks Clint. The .358 caliber rifle is one I don't know much about. After doing a quick Google search I can see that it looks like it should have no problem knocking down a big bull moose.
Based upon the .308 case necked up to .358 caliber
Savage introduced this caliber in it's very popular Model 99 lineup. It's a short action, heavy hitting cartridge. Ideal for thick brush and thick skinned animals.
I grew up shooting a model 99 in .308 caliber, I loved that old rifle. If I ever come across another I'll be buying it for sure!
I look forward to your updates on the .358 Savage.
Is it safe to assume yours is a Savage Model 99?
