please disreguard, question answered
I have a 35 Rem that I absolutely love. Great for the short range work in a Marlin 336 lever action. But, I was thinking about necking up a .308 Win to .358 to get a little more zip. I am assuming it would do close to the same velocities with the same weight bullet in .358 as a 338 Fed.
Yes I know, there are plenty of .338 bullets out there that are great and why not just use a .338 Fed. To be different, thats why. By my estimation, I should be able to order a custom reamer made to my specs and just bore out a 35 Rem chamber to match. Or, find a 35 Whelen and cut, rethread and rechamber.
