My 700 Classic in 350 Rem Mag. Perfectly balanced and sized for me, fast handling, accurate and a thumper to boot. A joy for me to shoot. Recently got into a bunch of 180gr Hot Cors so that I can really shoot her more now and save the 225 Partitions for the field. Though I might sell 100 of the Partitions and buy a new house.....😂

My funnest to shoot? Usually my M77 in 35 Whelen. Accurate, easy to load for and just flat out effective on game. Knocks things over DRT or DRT in a very short distance. I just put a set of irons on it of JD’s R700 with Williams firesight inserts. It handles well, shoots well and is about a perfect rifle for me. I do have a brand new M21 300 win mag that’s growing on me too. Hard choices.

When a question is asked, 35 Whelen is seldom the incorrect answer.

When I decided to build my 35 Whelen I seriously considered a 350 Remington Mag. Deciding factor was brass availability and ease of forming brass from 06 brass. I would definitely be happy with a 350 RM with enough box length and enough throat to comfortably handle 250’s.
I just watched a video of a guy forming and trimming 350 RM brass from 7 Rem Mag brass using a Redding form and trim die. Didn’t look too complicated and definitely a great option to keep a great round running. I can’t understand why more folks don’t use the Whelen and 350 mag. Great rounds

My favorite is a 4&1/2" Browning Nomad .22 that I bought at a gun show 50 years ago. When it comes to hunting or pure fun it is my go-to pistol. I've taken many squirrels, raccoons, coyotes, and even a deer with a broken leg that had been hit by a car. I have a model 41 S&W and a flat side Browning Buckmark that rarely see light outside the gun cabinet.
