I dropped into the local sporting goods store today. Found something that caught my eye, its a CVA scout pistol in 350 legend. I have one in a .243 and it shoots great. We as in the group I hunt with have killed several deer with it. We use it to fill most of our antlerless tags. I think this caliber in a pistol would be great. Anyone had any experience with it. They have a 14" barrel on them. so the ballistics should not be far off a rifle. Would like to hear the good and bad, if anyone has anything.

here is some info on loads and velocities in a 12 inch barrel , seems like it should be good 1950 with a 180gr power point from a 12 inch barrel in an AR
https://www.ar15.com/forums/Armory/350-legend-velocity-short-barrel-/42-512114/

I went 300blk years before 350 legend was an option , I do think it would be where I would go if were to build a pistol for deer today.

although in a shingle shot I might go 30-30 or 308 if it was an option for barrels


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

This is a group from the .243 with a load I worked up for it. I think the high and low were me. It has a 2x7 scope on it.
