I think any 35 Whelen project is a great idea. Way to go!!!!:)

OK.... now for the part part that makes me go Hmmmmmm..... In reading your post a couple of flags came up. I'm wondering about the smith quoting you 8 weeks. I know for a fact that many barrel manufactures have long order times (Krieger is currently 14 weeks, shilen is better at 8 weeks as long as it isn't 30 caliber). And when I ordered my latest mcmillan stock, first of June, they quoted me 18 weeks for delivery.

So either your smith has a bunch of parts on hand and very little backlog, or you already had the stuff for the build. Otherwise, I don't think you're going to make 8 weeks.:eek:

Hang in there..... the waiting is the hardest part.:)

The 225 gr Accubond is a good load. You can push them right at 2800 fps with RL15 which pretty much mimics the 338 win mag. Check out the Nosler reloading manual for specifics.
