I agree I think the High and Lowell's are classier. Mine is a 1885 Highwall (not a B78) made by Browning
It has the stock barrel and they are 28". Mine started life as a 30-06 and I sent it to JESS Rebore to have him rebore to 35 Whelen.jpw475 Your Browning Highwall is a thing of beauty, on top of that she shoots as well as she looks. How long is the barrel on your rifle? Is it a "stock" rifle or did you have it custom built?
@Art Lambart IIThis is what happens when you work to much, you miss good 35 Whelen posts. I love my 35 Whelen its my go to hunting round. I use 200gn Superformance loads for deer and hogs in the US and the 225gn TSX and 250gn NP in Africa
@hawkeyesatxI now have a .35 Whelen!! OH YEAH!!!
I finally got around to switching out the .270 barrel on my Savage 111, and replaced it with an E.R. Shaw 24 inch 1 in 14 inch twist, Magnum contour barrel.
It took some elbow grease to get the old barrel off, but I didn’t let it beat me! The next problem was the “GO” & “NO GO” gauges, and getting the bolt to close smoothly. After I got that taken care of, I tested closing the bolt on the “NO GO” gauge, and the bolt close stopped about one third of the way! MAN!! I’m in business now!!!
I’M SO PUMPED!!!
I finally did it!!!
She’s not the most beautiful rifle, but she will be an ass kicker, no doubt!!
Hey Bob!! Check out the pics!!
Word of warning for those amateur gunsmiths, like me, I broke the slotted black housing on the trigger that the accu-trigger rides in. I forgot the position of the trigger when I was torquing the old barrel off.
