I love my old .358 NM,reading this thread tells me its time to get her out for a crack at some more Sambar.

She lives on 225 grain woodleigh hydros lately. I have two boxes 250Gr Alaskans but havent used any so far.

Rob404 did you really mean to say "Whelen" when referring to a 75.5 Gr load of IMR 4350 pushing a 225 Gr. bullet? That sounds more like a load for a 358 Norma Mag.

Sorry,I inverted a number should be 57.5, I'm not sure 35 Whelen brass would even hold 75gs of powder

I really like the 35 caliber, have you given any thoughts to a 35 built on the RUM case. I had Rocky Mountain Rifles AKA Corlanes in Dawson Creek BC build me one a few years ago. It shoots 250 gr Partitions under 1 MOA.

Rob404, thanks for clearing that up. I have been loading 225 Gr Barnes TSX for my 35 Whelen with 59 Gr of IMR 4064 and that is pushing it. I got that load out of a Barnes manual so it should be good. I know it works in my gun without any issues or problems.

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
