A Legend In Its Time

The Franchi Momentum Elite in .350 Legend capitalizes on the popularity of straight-wall cartridge guns, and it's more than just a deer rifle.

Franchi already has a solid following in my home state of Ohio, due in large part to the popularity of its inertia-drive semiauto shotguns. But the newest addition to the Momentum family of rifles—the Momentum Elite in .350 Legend—will undoubtedly win favor among deer hunters who are clamoring for accurate bolt guns that are chambered in straight-wall centerfire hunting rounds that are now legal in the state.

As with its shotguns, Franchi rifles have earned praise for their build quality, performance and relative value. The Franchi Momentum Elite carries a suggested retail price of $899, which is slightly more than competing .350 Legend bolt guns like the Ruger American Go Wild ($770) and the Winchester XPR Strata MB ($750), but the Italian-made Franchi offers a list of features that are found on few other .350 Legend rifles.
