    Guy G., That is one fine looking rifle!
    Every time I get the hots for a .35 Whelen, I shoot my .358 Winchester and decide it is the only .35 I need. I'll just have to stalk 50-75 yards closer.:)

    Beautiful gun and great shooting. Im excited to get my 35W put together. Im going with a re-bored 1903 on a Bishop stock I reshaped and oiled.

    Might still do 358 too, I live having at least 2 guns for every caliber I load, just in case I buy a bunch of bullets 1 gun doesn't live... maybe the other will!

    On deck to load ive got
    180 GSC
    220 GSC
    220 Speer
    225 North Fork
    225 Partitions

    A beauty for sure in a great caliber. I have owned several and just recently had an '03 Springfield re-bored to the Whelen. Hope to get it to the range soon but a sore shoulder:cry: has kept me off the kickers for the moment.:mad: But I must ask, how long was the drop tube you used to get that much powder :eek:into the case and still have room for a projectile?:sneaky: I just put that much of R15 in an unsized fired case and it filled it to the rim!:confused: Would be rather heavily compressed!!;)

    Right you are sestoppelman, I have written on that target incorrectly years ago. It should read 57 not 67 as it would be impossible to seat a projectile. I will ask the mods to take it down as I don't know how to.

    Beautiful rifle! Now it needs some "character" added to it!
    I have two 35 Whelen's. A Rem 700 Classic and a Ruger MK1 RS I just picked up. Prefer the Mauser action myself.
    So any of my Canadian friends whom would like a Rem 700 I has one for sale!
