    It should out do the 338lm even with the smaller case. You need to pick a action you can get so you can figure what will fit.

    Yeah, those guys who compete in ELR have deep pockets. When you're dropping $10g on a spotting scope, a $2 bullet is like a piece of chewing gum

    not want belts......

    a 35RCM would be pretty close to a .350 Remington magnum, no belt and slightly better performance than a standard...or maybe even an AI 35 whelen.

    35 Nosler would be neat, sounds good anyway.

    I think I'd probably lean towards 358 WSM for those requirements. Apparently it's called the 35 Sambar as well, a guy on another forum said he was getting 2,950 fps with 225gr pills out of his. I don't know if you're going full custom, or just barrel swapping a factory rig, but if it's there latter, there's no shortage of lightly used rifles chambered in the WSMs floating around.

    I’ve been looking for a good donor rifle. @Legionnaire had a Rem Model 7 for sale in the classifieds that would have been perfect but he sold it before my mind was poisoned with this idea

    CDNN was practically giving away brand new model 70 .325 WSMs for a while. If they still have any, a simple barrel swap and you’re golden!

    Stay safe.

    Perhaps even just a JES reboring..

    Edit: They still have 20 sporters @ $649.($789 for a featherweight).

    https://www.cdnnsports.com/70-325wsm-sporter-24-crf.html#.Xc169FNlASE

    Kind of makes me want one as a 7mm WSM or 7mm SAUM donor....

    Wow ! That is perfect ! The 1909 Action in a refined state, love the choice of Cartridge which can take factory ammo and is easily made. Who did the stock ? Looks like an old master like Biesen or such ! Wow! just Wow !

    I know it won't exactly fit this thread, but what about a Marlin 86 in 35-45-70?

    I had a 600 in .350 and man did it kick. Traded it to Wild West Guns in AK decades ago. Wish I would have kept it, but I figured it belonged in AK.

    What did you use to finish that stock? I like it.

    Also to the OP, I’ve always wanted a 358 Shooting Times Alaskan , but that has a belt. (375hh necked to .358 and the shoulder blown out). It will sling a 250gr bullet close to 2900fps though.

    Perfect for a 358 WSM maybe, but not a 35-375 Ruger. Jest sayin' ...

    neat thing about the .35-375 is that ANY magnum faced standard or long action is useable. feeding shouldn't even really be an issue, I'm using ultramag magazines in my Abolt, but if I kept my coal below 3.4 I could use my stock 7mm magazine.
