Sawtooth 362 is a diagonal sawtooth with expansion factor 4 that was found by David Bell on August 29, 1992. Its population in generation 960(4n) - 1852 (n ≥ 1) is 362, though its population reaches unbounded levels in between those generations.

This sawtooth works by having a period 960 gun send glider southwest. Some are deleted and the rest reflect off the back of a 7-engine Cordership. Each returning glider deletes 2 outgoing ones.
