350 Legend lead free options

Anyone know of any lead free ammo options for the 350 Legend?

The only thing I can find is Maker Ammo has 125gr & 150gr tipped and 220gr subsonics. But I'd prefer a 180gr untipped. I don't handload, so I need loaded ammo. This would be for deer and coyote, plus the occasional hog, nearly always inside 100 yards.

I'd like to see Barnes come out with a .35 caliber 180 & 200 grain bullets for the 350L and .35 Rem.

Are you hunting a lead free zone? If you have to have lead free 180 grain ammunition you might have to pay a custom ammunition manufacturer to make it. If you can buy the Maker ammunition at the price listed on their page, I'd use it. I doubt you'll find any other lead free ammunition that affordable.

Unless you're hunting in an area that requires lead free ammo there is no advantage to using copper in that cartridge. Probably why there are so few choices.

I know this is very unhelpful, but non-lead ammo relies on speed to produce wounding. This cartridge wouldn't be my choice for hunting in a lead-free zone. Don't know of any loads that I'd feel comfortable using.

Lead free they generally have better weight retention and you don't end up with lead in your food. That said the advantages are minimal, but there are advantages.
