I used to be on here all the time, went away a few years. I'm back.
Our son got our grandsons a Savage Axis XP youth in .350 Legend, it's a bolt gun.
I have reloaded forever, just bought 200 small rifle primers, ordered RCBS 3 dies set, mooched some 40 cases, bought 200 Hornday .355 165grain FTX bullets, and I have a ton of powders......among them are 1 can each of Li'l Gun and IMR 4227.
My manuals are all older, so no load data for this new round in them.
I've read Li'l gun and 4227 several times for this caliber with the 160-170 range bullets.
Got any good experience with this caliber & reloading tips for me? THANKS in advance.

Lil-Gun is a Hodgdon powder. The Hodgdon Reloading Data Center Reloading Data Center | Hodgdon (hodgdonreloading.com) lists five powders and five bullet weights for use in the 350 Legend.

The Hodgdon site doesn't list 165 grain bullets but you should be able use the 170 grain data as a starting point. Lil-gun gives the highest velocity with the lowest pressure. I don't have a 350 Legend but use Lil-Gun extensively in my 300 Blackout as it is the quietest powder with suppressed loads.
