I am considering the purchase of a Contender barrel in .35 Rem. I know the round has a mixed reputation in the Contender, because of headspacing problems and the fact it is not a rimmed cartridge. I have seen somewhere we 'smith cut a rim recess, and the loader forms a .35 Rem rimmed. What cartridge is used to make this round? Is the conversion worth the trouble and expense? Any experience with this round that could be shared would be appreciated.. Thanks.

Actually, I would prefer a .357 Max, but the barrel I'm looking at is only $135.00! and I can't seem to find a Max barrel anywhere..especially at $135! I like the challenge! I have a .414 Super Mag that will probably do whatever the .35 Rem can do as far as killing critters goes..but I do like to try new and different chamberings. Thanks for the replies..
