.358 hoosier for indiana

I AM CURRENTLY HAVING A SHILEN BARREL IN .358 HOOSIER ON MY REMINGTON 700. THE PARENT CARTRIDGE IS THE .358 WINCHESTER AND THE CASE LENGTH
IS CUT TO 1.8". THAT IS THE NEW RULES FOR 2012 DEER SEASON. MY QUESTION IS
WHAT DOES EVERYONE THINK WOULD BE A GREAT LOAD FOR WHITETAILS HERE IN
INDIANA? ANY INPUT WOULD BE HELPFUL FOR BULLET/POWDER INFORMATION.

I'm going to assume your using a handgun of course. Unless your using something like an 18" or 20" barrel, I can't see any advantage over the .357 Herrett (use .225 Winchester or 30-30 cases). The 180 grain bullet will do 2000 fps out of a 16" barrel. Also your shots in Indiana will usually be well under 200 yards. The dies are a stock item, and that alone will save you some serious cash. There is a rimless 30-30 case out there (6.8 Rem), but it also pretty short. The 35 Remington in a 14" barrel and using 180 grain bullets is good for about 2000fps. You could shorten it .130" and still have .33" of neck. Then all you have to do is lay your hands on a set of 35 Remington dies. Much easier to do, and in a pinch you could use a standard 35 remington chamber

1.77" is the max length. It's a beast in a handgun, and very hard on optics. I just assumed you were going with a handgun. In a 20" barreled rifle you should see about 2250fps using 200 grain bullets. All I'm thinking is that there would be a lot less work with the 35 Remington shortened or the .357 Herrett. It's ashame they still won't let you use a 30 Herrett, as I was working up a case that was off the .357 Herrett, but used 225 Winchester brass. In a good bolt gun with a 20" barrel it ought to push 150 grain bullets to about 2400fps. It's a super efficient case.

Re: .358 hoosier for indiana

i have done three 35 rems trimmed back with 200 ftx, excellent accuracy, trying a 358 winchester trimmed back now. the co's can write you a ticket for anything that doesnt mean it will stick, the law is the law,they better be carrying dial calipers.
