@ Hunting Gold@Bob Nelson 35Whelen sold me on the "need" to have a 35 Whelen, so my gunsmith and I are putting one together. Nothing fancy but it should be fairly cool.
I have dropped off a wood blank at Reto Buehler's place to save my spot in line for a custom built single shot rifle on a Hagn Action. Yesterday I was thinking a 280AI, today I'm back to thinking a 270 Winchester with a 1:8.5 twist and a 26 inch barrel, throated a little long to seat a heavier bullet out a touch longer than would be possible in a box fed gun. I might have a little fancy stuff inlaid or engraved on it for fun. That's today's thoughts... tomorrow it could change.
It was your choice to go with the Whelen, I just opened tour eyes to its full potential.
I personally like the 280AI but the fast twist 270 long throated might be a go to loaded with woodleigh 180grain PPSP. May be the 270 Weatherby with a fast twist 28 inch long throated.
