Re: 35 Whelen

The donor rifle has been shipped to my FFL so I'm that much closer to making this a reality.
I know the Whelen is not considered a long range cartridge but should be good to 400 yds. which will serve my purpose because I'm looking for a medium range rifle with knock down power and the 35 Whelen should give me that with out the recoil of a magnum.

Re: 35 Whelen

Why would you re-bore an existing barrel instead of replacing the barrel with a new one?

Re: 35 Whelen

It may be to late to change the groove type but I would recommend the 6 groove for the heavy bullets.

The three groove barrels are great for light , fast bullets in varmint rifles but the heavy weights
200+grain work best with a 6 groove and bullets over 300 grain work best with 8 groove barrels.

Just a recommendation

Cost savings for one and turn around time. By re-boring an existing barrel you save on work time and you can re-use the existing stock with out making changes.
