Yes you can. You just have to watch for pressure signs as you work up the load. Back before you could readily source cast 9mm bullets for hand loading one of the guys in the group used 110 grain lead round nose cast bullets for the 38 special in his 9mm. They measured at .358 to .359". Later he bought a sizing die. After sizing he found he could increase the powder charge without showing signs of excess pressure.

Well Iíll confess to being pretty much totally unfamiliar with .351 Winchester and didnít realize it was a straight wall cartridge. I was thinking it was a bottle neck, so shame on me.

As to being legal for deer in Ohio, when they first allowed straight wall cartridge rifles a few years ago, they permitted only specific named cartridges. This year theyíve simplified it a lot:

This is the allowed guns for hunting in Ohio for the 2019/2020 season

Gun Season and Youth Gun Season
Shotgun: 10 gauge or smaller shotgun using one ball or one rifled slug per barrel (rifled shotgun barrels are permitted when using shotgun slug ammunition).
Muzzleloading rifle: .38 caliber or larger.
Muzzleloading shotgun: 10 gauge or smaller using one ball per barrel.
Handgun: With 5-inch minimum length barrel, using straight-walled cartridges .357 caliber or larger. The barrel is measured from the front of the cylinder or chamber to the end of the barrel.
Straight-walled cartridge rifles in the following calibers: All straight-walled cartridge calibers from a minimum of .357 to a maximum of .50. Shotguns and straight-walled cartridge rifles can be loaded with no more than three shells in the chamber and magazine combined.

Pretty sure this is a .357 cartridge else it would fail, at least one state requires .357 minimum. Ammunition is relatively inexpensive, brass, ditto. I suppose you could find a straight wall caliber, loaded with light bullets, that would be faster. BFD, there usually are exceptions. There's no doubt in my mind that this was designed to fit in the AR from the git. That it can't use regular AR magazines is not that big a deal. Many states limit capacity of semi-autos to 5 rounds. The only drawback I see is Winchester. They tend to give up early and stop making brass readily available. At least they didn't do another .375/38-55 CF.
