    Earlier I mentioned how I want to get a Rem. 700 in .35 Whelen. Well, I think I'm going to, but I think I'm gonna' get it rechambered to the wildcat .358 Hawk. This will be 1 nice timber rifle for bears and elk and the like. Also, check out the hawk wildcats those things are cool. They are based on the -06 case and the biggest 1, the .411 Hawk, beats out the .450/400 Nitro Express.

    Sounds interesting, no doubt! But, I'll stick with my 35 Whelens, thanks. Best of luck with that big boy!

    These cartridges look nice on paper, but do you have the means to reload for them?

    If you give the demensions you can have any wildcat dies you want.However I like to stick to something that is fairly popular.I find that the cartridge that beats all others is the one that is available and I have used enough to be very proficient with.I have used many different cartridges but always feel suficiently armed when carrying a .22lr, .30-06,.38spl,9mm,.44mag,12or20ga,depending on the circumstances.If I am using one of these in the field they were intended for they will do their part. sam.
