    Why not build the same chambered in 6.8SPC for alot less money.
    More power,flatter shooting,easier to load for,more choice of both loaded ammo and bullets. --- pruhdlr

    It's different...so depending on your personal taste it might be pretty cool. I'm not sure you're going to get a complete powder burn in a 9.5" barrel with the 350L though = trajectory of throwing rocks. If you are hunting timber or short shooting lanes that's no big deal...but if you are trying to guess range to a 150 yard pig and you're off 25 percent in the pitch black then that's a wounded or missed animal entirely.

    The other downside is that the bullet construction may not lend to low-velocity expansion...coupled with significantly reduced energy.

    I don't want to discourage. You could always be the first to rack up a bunch of kills with an AR pistol in the 350L. It's just that there are more efficient ways to put pork on the ground.
