    I have this cartridge in a browning lever action. I can load 225 grain nosler partitions to a little over 2400fps. This round is the 308 win neck up to 35 caliber. Has anyone used it in Africa? Ruger at one time chambered thier bolt action in it. I am going to Namibia next May and am planning on taking a 338 win mag and a 300ruger compact mag but the 358 is tempting to try and probably would go if it were a bolt-action. I use it here in the states as a brush gun.

    There is no reason not to bring the 358 Win., I have not used it. My uncle owns one. It should be extremely deadly for the game in Namibia, if you can shoot the gun accurate.
