Has anyone else in this forum, used Buffalo Bore recently and had issues? I am a fan of Buffalo Bore (hence the purchase) and I will be in contact with Buffalo Bore (BB) to see if this is an one off or if this load isn't suitable in my rifle (it should be fine). I tend to trade rifles / firearms more than I outlay cash for a firearm. This sometimes is due to boredom (I'm trying to be honest here) or discontent with the rifle or caliber. I of course have my favorites that I do not intend on ever parting with. When I spend my hard earned money on a brand new gun, I fritter away hours on research to get the caliber and style of rifle right for its intended use. This BLR Takedown was a purchase. .358 Win and .35 Whelen are two calibers that are my favorites. I love the mid bores. This rifle was for my horse pack in trips in MT predominantly but was going to be my travel rifle for hog hunts in FL. Due to my work as a Captain of offshore commercial vessels traveling long distances for the last 20 years, reloading really wasn't an option until recently. My best recourse was quality factory ammunition to enjoy my range and hunting time at home. I don't have brand devotion, whatever my particular rifle likes I use. My Sendero 7mm Rem Mag Heavy Barrel loves Hornady 139gr SST Superformance, Kimber Mountain Ascent 308 loves HSM 168gr and my Browning X-Bolt 270 WSM love Federal Fusion 150gr. Just to name a few. I'm not trying to bash Buffalo Bore. When I first purchased my BLR Takedown, I was chomping at the bit to get it to the range. I'm sure you can imagine my disappointment when the first shot out of the rifle completely locked up the action and I had to use a rod with quite a bit of force to get the shell to eject. I muscled through 16 rounds that day. Every second one seemed to eject with a little effort but not bad. I tried to tell myself this was new rifle blues but I spent hours working the action to smooth it prior to the range trip. Extremely frustrating. I didn't even think to buy another box of ammo to take with me as I have always had full faith in BB. For the 2nd range trip, I purchased a box of Hornady 200gr Spire Points. These ran flawlessly and the groupings were VERY impressive. I was pretty much resigned to the fact that I would have to ship my rifle to Browning for a thorough checkup but after the Hornady ammo ran flawlessly and the rifle performed extremely well to 200 yds, I really don't see the need to change the combo. I preferred the idea of 225 grain for Elk but from what I've been reading, the 200 grain should get the job done. I'm wondering if anyone else has had similar experiences with this ammunition or do you believe it was a one off? Does anyone else have a load that works great in their BLR 358 Win? I guess it's time to start reloading... Thanks in advance!
