*I too got the highest velocities (and superior accuracy) in a 22" .350 Rem Mag using TAC.
Not to derail the thread on 358 Win, if you want eye watering loads in 350 RemMag try MR2000 with 225’s!

Here it is with the newly shortened barrel (20") after I put it all together. This is on a Savage 'Lady Hunter' short action that has a slimmer wrist in the stock, shorter length of pull and high comb. I played with a couple of different scopes and mounts, but I think I like the Leupold backcountry 1 piece ringmounts the best so far in this application. .The weight comes out to 8.3 pounds with the scope and all, so hopefully it's a nice balance of reasonable weight and recoil attenuation for the wife.

I don't know where you're located, but I'd be happy to let you try out my Krieghoff. I'm located in West Tennessee and the local gun club has a skeet layout and is located not far from my farm. We're about five miles from the Kentucky state line and about 100 miles west of Nashville.
I just joined today, I live in Louisiana. I joined mostly because of all of the 35 Whelen discussion as I am now very interested In the 35 Whelen. I have an 1885 Highwall that J.E.S.S. rebored to 35 Whelen

Also own 338s 375 and both a 416 rem and Rigby
