Description
 
First offered as the model 600 Rifle in 1965 by Remington Arms Company, the .350 Remington Magnum, .350 Rem Mag for short, was later offered in the model 660 and 700 rifles. This rifle was designed to compete against the compact lever actions of the day but in a bolt action configuration. This cartridge was based on a standard 2.5” belted magnum but shortened to 2.171” and necked up to .358 caliber, the first short magnum.

Following its 1964 release, the M600 rifle received a good deal of criticism. The release of the .350 chambering in 1965 was met with even greater disapproval. Hunters and gun writers did not fancy the synthetic materials, its light weight or its short barrel. The .350 Remington Magnum is a fairly powerful cartridge, but the magazine length of the rifles it is usually chambered in, does limit its ability to use longer, heavier bullets with higher ballistic coefficients. Still, with certain bullets and handloading, it is a capable 500+ yard big game cartridge. Its premier use, though, is more as a "brush gun", basically defined as a short, handy rifle that is more easily maneuvered in environments where shots are likely to be closer, and opportunities appear and disappear quickly.

By the summer of 1956, Ruger became aware of this project and began work on a single action Blackhawk revolver for the new .44 Magnum cartridge. A popular rumor says a Ruger employee found a cartridge case marked ".44 Remington Magnum" and took it to Bill Ruger, while another says a Remington employee provided Ruger with early samples of the ammunition. Ruger began shipping their new revolver in late November of 1956. The .44 Rem Mag was an instant success. Later, films such as “Dirty Harry” only proved to increase the fandom around this caliber. The caliber is still prominent toady, even though modern alloys and technology have led to larger and more powerful calibers.
At reasonable ranges, the .350 Remington Magnum is capable of taking any game on the North American continent effectively and humanely. It would also be suitable for many African species, though some African nations have a .375" (9.53mm) or .400" (10.2mm) minimum caliber requirement for dangerous game.

Each box contains 25 once fired brass shell casings. Headstamps are mixed. This is unprocessed brass sourced from commercial shooting ranges. The casings have been washed and polished, but not resized and may still contain the spent primer. It is recommended that all brass be inspected prior to being reloaded and fired
