    Aha, well then maybe consider the remington 760/7600 in 35 whelen. Fast handling, wonderfully accurate ( in the examples i uave owned or tested) and reasonably priced. Then you can sell the model 70 to me

    I have considered the 7mm-.375 Ruger. I’m also interested in what it would be as a straight walled case w OAL to fit in a standard action. Prob been done, I’m just not aware of it.

    as others have said...those are fine choices for non-mag medium

    338-06
    35 W
    9.3x62
    9.3x64 (with the aforementioned bolt mod)

    for the first 3, there's almost zero difference in ballistics when shooting 250 gr bullets

    9,3x62 or .338/06 would be the two I would consider first with the nod probably going to the 9,3. I have had great luck with both of them.

    I love my 9.3X62. It is very accurtate and recoil is minimal. If you have spent the money for 14 0r15 rifles since you joined less than a year ago, I wouldn't stop with a 9.3X62.
