I only have Iron sights on it, but it's plenty accurate for what I wanted it for. The bore looks excellent. It doesn't foul with copper or lead.



I use a lot of Shilens and will tell you that it is a waste of money using a select match barrel over the match barrel for a hunting rifle. The only advantage is between your ears.

Put a Lilja #5 with a 1 in 12 on my STA. They'd be my #1 choice.

I guess I got lucky with my A&B from Midway on my 35 Whelen Imp.

My Benchmark 35 is excellent

I have a CM Krieger #3 .358 1-10 twist and a Benchmark #3 1-9.5 Twist right now. One of them will become another 35 Whelen and the other will go on my 35 Newton. I can't imagine either will let me down.

I have had good experiences with X Caliber and just ordered a 375 cal from them
