Father of 11 husband of 1
I came across a great deal on 350 Legend Ammo (around $13 a box of 20 after tax) at my local Wally World. Then I found bullets and Lee dies. (The dies were only $32, which is pretty good for these days.) I had considered selling them as a package at the next gun show but then my LSG put one on clearance for only $377.
I have its twin in .223 and really like it and the Bushnell scope that came with it. This had the same scope and a threaded barrel as well. So, here I am.
Finally got it out to the range today.
I had read that a few other owners had found an issue with the magazine having to be reseated after every shot. Of course, I got one with the issue.
I had noticed that the magazine looked identical to the .223 mags of which I had picked up a couple of extras. It seemed to fit and feed fine so I took one along to the range to see if it would work. If fact it worked perfectly, better than the magazine that came with it.
After I got home I contacted Savage. They said that they were aware of the issue and they were having new magazines being produced. He hoped that they would be available in a couple of weeks. I suggested they just send me a .223 magazine instead but he said they didn't have any of them in stock as well. (He told me subsequently that they had no magazines at all.)
It was my second time that I called Savage this week. Earlier I had picked up a VG6 Gamma 9MM muzzle brake. VG6 advertised that it was also the correct one for the .350 Legend.
Silly me, I didn't measure the thread size and pitch. (Not a big deal as I had a 9mm carbine that it fit.)
I tried to look up the size but it was not in the manual and I didn't see it on any of the sites that were selling the same rifle.
Even the Savage site did not have it listed.
I called Savage and the young lady I spoke with assured me that she could get it for me. She was gone for a pretty long time and when she came back she said that she could not find it either. However, she got a hold of the technical department and they finally found it on a chart. (5/8"x24)
I have not yet located a suitable brake (at least one that I could afford) but, as it turns out, I really didn't need it. The rifle is a very soft shooter.
After I got the scope dialed in I am finding it has very good accuracy, at least for the intended mission of Ohio deer season.
I have some brass to play with now so I will attempt reloading it soon. (Hopefully)
Now on a quest to find more brass or another cheap shipment from WalMart.
I want to see if I can make a gallery load using 9mm bullets as well. (both are .355)
