I picked up a Ruger 1AB 30/06 that is new in the box from a friend. My plan is to ship it to JES and have it rebored to 35 Whelen or 35 Whelen Ack Imp. Does anyone know if JES does a 35 Whelen Ack Imp chambering when he rebores? Please give me your thoughts on going 35 Whelen or 35 Whelen Ack Imp, since a 1AB has a 22" barrel. My son uses a Rem 7600 in 35 Whelen, which has a 22" barrel and he has taken a number of deer out to 300 yards without a problem. I have another 1AB in 7X57 that I really love to hunt with and carry, so think a 1AB in a Whelen will be a great hunting combo. I just wish I was younger so that I had more years to carry it.
