View Full Version : .351 win.
any one loaded the .351 winchester s L ?
You will probably find info on the .351 Win in an older Lyman reloading manual in the obsolete cartridge section. All my reloading manuals are @ our main house, so I can't look in ours.
At one time MidWay USA had brass & dies for it, unsure if they do now.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help guy.
Don't load it, but I have the Lyman data if you want it.
Both bullet weights. A jacketed 180 and a cast with gas check(348 calibre) .352" 171 grain (Lyman mold number 350319). Problem is the lack of readily available .351" jacketed bullets.
However, Buffalo Arms sells 'em. 180 grain RNSP at $50 per 100. $96 per 200. $234 per 500. They have brass(formed from another case with that case's head stamp) too. $64 per 100. Uses an RCBS #1, RCBS #19 or Lyman X15 shell holders. Dies from them start at $78.39 for 4D, $83.82 for Redding, $163.89 for RCBS. Midway is a bit more expensive and only have Redding and RCBS. The only have Quailty Cartridge brass at $65.99 per 50.
Isn't cheap by any means, but at least you can get it.
These guys have the 180 grn and the 200 grn
Well, excuse me, info was taken from The Handloaders Guide to Cartridge Conversions. by John J. Donnelly. What's .005 on a rim? Less than what hair you don't have. Now I see, took the info from the wrong page, there was a 35 WSL then the 351 WSL. Make 351 WSL from .357MAX Turn rim to .407, cut new extractor groove, trim to 1.38 and F/L size. That better? For a load it gives 15gr of 2400 under a 180gr bullet at 1530fps. Source of the load, Major Nonte.
"...Cases can be made from .357 magnum..." Rubbish. Unless you've figured out how to add 90 thou to a rimmed case to make a semi-rimmed case. Maybe from a .357 Maximum. If the case head brass is thick enough to turn an ejector groove.
"...Turn rim to .405..." Nope. The rim on a .351 is .410". Trim-to length is 1.376", not 1.14". Max case length is 1.380".
I reload the 401 ,351 and the 35.
Interesting cals to work with. To small a charge can act like an over pressure and blow primers.
I try to use original brass, when I can
Hawk and Huntingtons have bullets.
Redding dies are the way to go, and a little cheeper then RCBS
