    Great looking gun. I think you will love the Whelen. I do love mine built on an old Rem 721 action. What twist rate did you use?

    Thanks for the compliments! I went with a 1:12 twist as I do plan to shoot some heavier bullet loads out of the rifle as well.

    Jake, great looking rifle! I'm sure you will enjoy it.
    Now, since you've actually had a rebarrel done, can you please tell us definitively for the record what thread diameter and pitch is used for the barrel threads on the MR-7?

    Real sharp looking rifle in a classic caliber.The big 35 is my all time favorite cartridge and have hunted with it for the last 25+ years.I really like the barnes triple shock 225 gr.

    Thanks for the compliments! I'll dig into that and let you know.

    I get 3/8ths inch four shot group at 100 yards with that bullet and 53.0 grains of IMR4350. Rifle is a Remington Mountain Rifle.

    Great choice of calibers. There is more ammo on the shelf than I ever seen. Fusion is a great choice. Hell on hogs, recoil is very manageable.
