oh I remember it well. The only thing I didn't like of it. And I think you and I discussed it, was position of sling mountsThanks Jeff. I sort of think so. As much joshing as there was about the 9 X 71 Peterlongo I'm surprised you don't remember that one. That's one of the cartridges I did the work up for in COTW. Time gets away from me so it may have been as much as 5 years ago I picked up that one.
That a sweet rifle and I'll have to read up on that caliber, I really like the 35 cartridges, they're great for deer. Heavy hitting without killing your shoulder. I posted this awhile back I restored a 141 in 35 Remington, still haven't shot it yet.Ohio's gun laws regarding cartridges allowed seems as goofy as Missouri's. Game agencies evidently have absolutely no concept of ballistics.
Until a few years ago I was never very interested in 35 cal. cartridges. I'd read tons about the 35 Whelen and thought it a fine cartridge, still do! Then, a few years back, I acquired this elegant Johann Peterlongo Mauser in 9 X 71 Peterlongo. Think 35 Whelen on steroids.
