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.

130grn balistic tips hand loads, they shot fine out of the Remington 760 I loaded them for, have 150grn Partitions to load, and I'm all but convinced that H4831 won't even make good fertilizer?
Sorry, my post was meant to include this quote. Hit wrong button.
