Anyone ever seen or know anything about this type wildcat? Seems like it would act like a 348win.

Go look at the specs for the .35win - my personal favorite "rimmed .35" to go in the 1895 Winchester lever action rifle. What prompted the question? The rifle you want to use? The brass you want to "use up"? The caliber?

Not enough case capacity to "act like a .348" IMHO - 59gr water v/s 76.5gr in the .348 case. I second the motion for "358win" for versitle caliber. Now that .338 flex-tips are available for reloading, I'm leaning more and more toward the .33win in my 1886s. Making brass from .45-70 for the .33 is way-cheep....

I'd go with the .35-348win wildcat if I didn't have three .33wins just waitin' for a cool flex-tip load....

Try "The Handloader's Manual of Cartridge Conversions" by John J. Donnelly to see just how many wonderfully weird ideas have been tried. It's one of my favorite resources, and well-worth the read.
