Ok, this is one I've been working on for nearly 9 months. Interarms Mk X long action (originally a 30-06)that has been trued, lapped and whatever else was needed. Pac-nor 22" barrel. Cerakoted by the folks at Abilene Powder Coating (I heartily endorse them both for the job they did and the fact that they kept me updated on status throughout). Timney Trigger. Colors were my choice.





Caliber is 358 Winchester. Scope is an older Leica (Leica-pold?) 1.75-6x32 w/ a #4 crosshair.

I have 64 rounds loaded up for it and a buddy is giving me 2 more boxes of factory Hornady he found on sale. Now if I can just find the time to go out to the range!

That's unique, for sure. Kinda reminds me of a John Deere tractor, only subdued. I like that you've used a 98-based action too. Your cartridge choice is definitely different too! I gotta wonder why you didn't go ahead and go with .35 Whelen since the action is just right, but the .358 should be just about as effective.

Timney?

Nice boomstick. I had a BLR in 358 Win, it was a fun caliber.

That's a beautiful rifle. Great chambering, too. It's got to be a lot of fun to shoot.

I have enjoyed the big bore stuff lately. In the last year I have owned a 330 Dakota, 416 rigby and 338 lapua. Shootin the big bores is a lot of fun.

Nice work.

That is an excellent choice for my neck of the woods and lots of guys use this caliber for deer, bear and moose. Great choice for big woods hunting where 90% of big game shots are inside 100 yards and never go more than 200 yards.

I currently shoot a 35 Whelen with 250 grain partitions for my big woods hunting and it will knock down anything that crosses my path.

Metal work is gold. The stock is flat forest green (I think that's the name). The stock is the kind that doesn't need baking
