The .358 Norma

Exactly! I place the 358 NM and the 9.3x64 almost equal to the 375 h&h in performance, with the 375 Ruger a nose length ahead of them....with the 338WM nipping at the heels of them all....and Bob's 35 Whelen nipping at the heels of the 338 WM. However, the 358 NM, the 9.3x64, and the 338WM will shoot flatter and penetrate deeper, whereas the 375s have a tad more diameter.....and Bob's 35 Whelen beat them all in the recoil department! ;) Boy oh boy, I love these mid-bores!

I get a chronoed 2,455fps out of the Whelen with the 310s and over 2,600 fps with the 275gn Woodleighs. Me thinks that places it in a class of its own.

For sure! Combining those velocities with the heavy grains, it will definitely have the killing power on some big animals....Excellent for a non-magnum!

Is this rifle sold? If not what is the weight of it and do you know if there is enough difference in diameter between the 35W and the 9.3 to allow for a rebore to a 9.3x62 which is what I am after?
Thanks,
Gary (Just down the road in Springfield)

Forgive me if this is the incorrect area, I signed up to this forum just now because I wanted to be on the list to purchase a copy of your autobiography. Please feel free to pass my information along to whomever is selling. Thank you so much. I look forward to it!
I like the Tillie in my picture. They are supposed to fit loose (2 fingers inside hat band), have mesh for cooling, and hold their shape after washing.
