Load data for caliber ".358 Win."The .358 Winchester is a rifle cartridge that was introduced in 1955 by Winchester. It is based on the .308 Winchester cartridge and uses a necked-up case to accept .358-inch diameter bullets.
The .358 Winchester cartridge is designed for use in lever-action and bolt-action rifles, and it is commonly used for hunting medium to large game such as deer and elk. It offers excellent accuracy and stopping power, making it a popular choice among hunters who prefer a heavier bullet with a larger diameter than more common cartridges such as the .30-06 Springfield or .308 Winchester.
While the .358 Winchester cartridge is not as widely used as some other rifle cartridges, it has a dedicated following among hunters and enthusiasts who appreciate its excellent ballistics and stopping power.

The Commission internationale permanente pour l'épreuve des armes à feu portatives ("Permanent International Commission for the Proof of Small Arms" – commonly abbreviated as C.I.P.) is an international organisation which sets standards for safety testing of firearms. (The word portatives ("portable") in the name refers to the fact the C.I.P. tests small arms almost exclusively; it is ordinarily omitted from the English translation of the name.) As of 2015, its members are the national governments of 14 countries, of which 11 are European Union member states. The C.I.P. safeguards that all firearms and ammunition sold to civilian purchasers in member states are safe for the users.
To achieve this, all such firearms are first proof tested at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses. The same applies for cartridges; at regular intervals, cartridges are tested against the C.I.P. pressure specifications at the ammunition manufacturing plants and at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses.
