A while back I had JES ream an 06 to a 35 whelen. Did a beautiful job. I have another Parker & Hale 300 WM that is extra to me. Was thinking about having him do something to it as well. I really like the specs for the 358 norma but it looks like the shoulder is back about .112 compared to the 300. ??? Hmm Was also toying w going to 375 H&H but the barrel is only .600 @ muzzle which leaves only .112 meat left. Obviously I have a belted magnum bolt so I'm limited.
Any thoughts? PS no 338s. Want .35 or more.

Why not get a new barrel with the contour that you want and chambered for the cartridge that you want.

Either the 358 Norma or the 375 H&H is awesome.

Another thought: get a barrel chambered in a 35 caliber, and have it reamed to the 358 RUM. That would be a 300 RUM necked to 35 caliber.

It can push a 250 gr bullet to 3200 fps.

Talked to Jesse @ JES reboring. He said he would step back my barrel and make my 358 N Mag. 325 out the door and into the UPS truck.
