    Cool! I have a Savage and a Ruger that I would love to convert if I can only find a place to hunt.
    I won’t be wronged, I won’t be insulted, and I won’t be laid a hand on.

    The following includes some updated information recently sent to known suppliers of rifles, barrels, and ammunition for the .358 Hoosier:

    Because of the continuing shortage of .358 Winchester brass (the original parent case of the .358 Hoosier) many owners of existing .358 Hoosier rifles and barrels are forced to use various brands of .308 Winchester commercial brass to make Hoosier cases. Some (not all) of this brass is a little too thick in the neck area to chamber in existing rifles without first outside neck turning the formed brass. In order to make it easier to use commercial .308 Winchester brass as the parent case (and not needing to neck turn the brass) in future barrels, Pacific Tool and Gauge has made a modification to the finish chamber reamer that they produce. The headspace and other dimensions stay the same, but the neck diameter is increased about .004 inches. Also, about .020 inches longer freebore is used in the latest version of the .358 Hoosier to better accommodate slightly longer overall cartridge lengths. The finish reamer Print Number is D-32464 (available from Pacific Tool and Gauge).

    It has been requested that future .358 Hoosier barrels be chambered with the latest reamer dimensions. However, if or when a supplier does this is strictly up to them. The same thing holds true regarding possibly “opening up” some existing chambers to the new dimensions. As you know, the cartridge and all that goes with it are in the public domain.

    There still exists the caution regarding surplus military .308 (7.62 X 51 NATO) brass. It may have thicker case walls and necks than commercial brass and a somewhat smaller powder capacity. Also, some of it may have been fired in machine guns having very “generous“ chambers (which can make initial resizing more difficult).

    Just got my .358 Hoosier build back from Douglas Barrels. 24" air gauged Remington #3 contour stainless steel match barrel. They took my Rem. Mod. 700 barreled action and removed the barrel and recoil lug. They trued the bolt and action, made and chambered the barrel and put the works back together again for $565.00 They sent me back the barreled action with their barrel installed plus, of course, the old barrel. Very nice to deal with and they have a long history in the business with a great reputation. I'm stocking it with a Bell & Carlson Medalist with a full aluminum bedding block. The Rem. #3 contour fits the Medalist. Will get back on the forum once I've put some rounds down the pipe. Stan Taylor at Douglas Barrels: 304-776-1341 Great to work with. I have high expectations for the accuracy of this rifle.
