Default 35 Gibbs or 358 Norma Magnum

Have a 35 Whelen already. Looking at the 35 Gibbs or a 358 Norma Magnum. Does anyone have any experience with either or both cartridges?

No experience yet but I just had a Rem 700 re-barreled to 358 Norma. It is at the gunsmith getting sights installed now but hopefully I will be shooting in the next few weeks. It will be the big brother to my three 35 Whelens, 358 Win , 356 Win and 35 Rem. Now I need a 350 Remington!

Had a Schultz and Larsen 65DL in 358 NM.Old school with a B and L scope in Kahursky external adjustment mounts.No finer round for Elk exists.But why limit yourself,get a Gibbs as well.Any 35 cal is great!

Well I am taking the plunge. It will be in slow motion. I bought a used Ruger Mk 2 in 7 mm mag as a donor rifle for rebore to 358 Norma Mag. I will be sending it off to JES as soon as I get the funds set aside.

One of my class mates at CST built a Norma with a nice stock. While prairie dog shooting, the stock split and had to be replaced. He got about 40 rounds through it before it split. It had been glass bedded, but was beyond repair. When he re-stocked it, he added another large lug to the barrel.

Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional , illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of cr*p by the clean end!

Now, with special thanks to the Truman Museum and Harry himself, you and I finally have a full understanding of what "POLITICAL CORRECTNESS" really means.....
