The OP or anyone else who posted on this thread will likely not care to see your info, as this thread is almost 11 years old However, some of the rest of us that like & shoot the fine .358 Win would like to see what your recipes are. Welcome to the site!I have had good luck with the hornady bullets that are used on the lever revolution cartridges and speer grand slam 225gr with h4895 powder. I am at work if you are interested I can look up the exact info when at home. The hornady bullet took a pa whitetail on a gas pipeline at around 220 or 230
yards. The rifle was a ruger hawkeye stainless with timmeny trigger.
You're going to have to try something else , as Nosler doesn't make a .358 225 Gr. Ballistic Tip . They introduced one a few years ago , and promptly dropped it , for some reason !I plan to use mine as a Hog/Bear gun as well. I am going to start with the Nosler 225 ballistic tip. I think this is a good all around and mid weight bullet. We'll see how it goes.
Does anyone know why Nosler discontinued their 225 Gr. Ballistic Tip . I remember when they introduced it . They said it was for the Whelen , and it had a Buckskin colored tip on it ! I didn't have my .358 then , and I knew they weren't the ticket for the .35 Rem .Gents,
Whoa, this one is an old one. I like looking at these old posts, reminds me where I was in the world then, and I was just starting out with the 358 and the Browning BLR. Killed a very nice 12 point with that rifle that year, 225 Sierra right behind the shoulder, my first ever 358 meat making episode.
In the last eleven years......the 358 has been my primary hunting rifle for woods or mixed terrain hunting, and it doesn't disappoint. It has been used on more game than any other rifle that I own at this point, and has become the default gun with the 225 Nosler and H4895.
Oneoldsap is right, they dont make a ballistic tip anymore, but they did in 2002!
Well fellers, I'll update ya'll with it here in 11 years, en shalla.
