My brother had one. It is a useful cartridge, as powerful as the .35 Whelen just in a short-action. With at least a 225 grain bullet it can take any animal in N. America, easily. Ammo availibilty is pretty good here in Pennsylvania and other areas of the East Coast, but not so good outside of here in the lower 48. They are somehwhat common around here (stretching the word common to the breaking point), and I believe ammo sells for about 30-35$ a box, making the cartridge best suited for a reloader.

Man, are you lucky that squirrel didn't get back up! You should never hunt with an underpowered round like that!!!!
Yeah, he should be deer hunting with .223's like everyone else on internet forums..... Doesn't he know that the .350 is too much for those animals he listed. I highly reccomend he switches to the .243 for all that stuff. Maybe he should even use 80 grain bullets, that'd really knock 'em flat.
