356 is a good round but never captured the imagination of the American shooters (much like its forerunner, the 358 Winchester). At 1,000 yds in a 40 mph wind, you should be able to hit an antelope at a dead run (just kidding, it is pretty much a 200-300 yds gun due to the flat nosed bullets it uses).

The 358 Winchester was designed to replicate the 35 Winchester and the 9X57 loadings that were popular in Winchester rifles in the early 1900s. The 356 Winchester was introduced in the 1980s (along with the 7-30 Waters, the 307 Winchester, and the 375 Winchester) in an attemt to slow down the shooter public rapidly moving away from lever action rifles. Didn't work. Good cartridge, just too little too late.
