Hey everyone!

I think I have a bad case of the Mid-bore-idous bug.
I bought, yet again, a Savage 110E in .270 Win, and am now thinking of sending the barreled action off to JES to have them rebore/rechamber it to 9.3x62 (the African 35 Whelen).

Is this a good idea?
Or should I buy another ER Shaw barrel kit, and get the 338-06, and switch it to that caliber?

Ugh! I hate this!
But whatever I decide, I think I’ll really like it.

From my experience it is not so much not knowing as it is not being able to, due to lack of practice , flinching due to too much gun or just plain old lack of proficiency. Of course for some it is the dreaded “buck fever”.

@Bob Nelson 35 Whelen

You wouldn’t believe how many times I’ve come across green horn hunters, or even so called experienced hunters, and they don’t know where to shoot a big game animal!

No mate I'm not surprised.
I was shooting with someone one day that took 3 shots at a rabbit and kept missing. I asked him what he was doing.
He replied I like to give them a few warning shots first.
The funny part was the rabbit had myxo and we walked over to it and he shot it from about 3 feet with his so called super accurate 22.
