    I don't think it has a wildcat name so It would be called a 300/35 or some would reverse
    it and call it a 35/300. It is close to the 35 Newton And shorter than the 358 STA.

    Why not just go with the .358 Norma Magnum?

    there's more than one listed in Ackley's book that are very similar (if not the samething). The .358 Norma mag is shorter than the .300 case necked up, but is still a very nice cartridge. I also think that the Kieth/Thompson/O Conner boys did a similar round as well off the .333 OKH case, but it's not listed by Ackley. I know they did a .338 OKH and a .35 OKH that were similar to the .340 Weatherby.
