John Myles, Senior Manager of New Products at Smith and Wesson, made some remarks about the revolver:

The 350 Legend is one of the flattest shooting straight-walled cartridges on the market today. It is great for medium-sized game and especially whitetail hunting. If you’re looking for a hunting revolver, the Model 350 is it.
