That said I have been looking at the Whelan or a 358 Norma but to be honest if I could find a decent rifle in 350 Remington I would be very happy. I've even thought about the 35 Sambar(358 WSM) since 325 cases are plenty and one step forming.
The 358 Norma adds about 200 fps to the standard Whelen, I had one and it's a great round. I thought hard about a 358 WSM as well at one time and even made up some dummy rounds. I think it has just a bit less powder capacity than the 358 Norma. The 35 Nosler would be the way to go though if they release the round. Bet they will be able to reach 3000 fps with a 250 with it easily.
