I have been looking into the 35 Whelen as a hog gun for awhile now.
Remington has it this year in the 750 semi-auto and the 700 cdl.
Well, I was at BPS in Tulsa today and on the used rack they have a
35 Whelen in the 700 cdl. It looks brand new and is about 100 bucks
cheaper than a new one. I held off and am going to think about it for
a night but what are the odds? Just seeing the rifle you have been thinking
about right there has to be some kind of omen right?
Funny but the same thing happened a couple of weeks ago with a buddy as we
were in a used gun shop and they had a 8mm BDL for dirt cheap. He has been
looking for one of these forever and the other ones he had found were twice
as much. Anyway, the moral of this story is to hit every gun shop you see because you never know what you might find ;D .

Good hog caliber caresut.

I found a mint 30-06 springfield Remington 7400 semi-auto.
It turned out to be a big pile of crap...It shot 8" groups @ only 50 yards.
I returned it to the gun store,I bought it from & I got a Weatherby Accumark in 7mm wby.
It only cost me $300.00 more & it was used as well.
It shot like a dream sub moa @ 100 yards & 200 yards 1/8" groups @ 200 yards.
That was a great rifle.

That .35 Whelen will drop anything in North America in its tracks if it hit good. If its in a price range your comfortable with, I'd got for it. Sounds like its in the cards to me ;) ;D

My first centerfire after getting out of the Army was a Rem 742 Semi auto. I could get a 4" group out of it with some serious reloading of different bullets, and powder. Since I'm kind of picky about having a gun that will shoot at least 1 MOA, I got rid of it pretty quick. The Browning BAR will do a whole lot better. Especially if its equipped with the BOSS system. Just besure to wear lots of ear protection though. ;)
Recently, I've bought a couple more centerfires at gun auctions. I'll try to get some pics posted. They are nothing fancy, but just classics that cought my eye. ;D
