Well that's with the synthetic stock...I have since put it back in some dense walnut and she is about 7.25 pounds now. Still a tad vigorous but the magna porting helps a bit too. Gotta love the 35's

There was an old article about reboring the Rem 760 to a 375 -06 , could not go that large as the Remington barrel sight screws were to deep wonder if the 9.3 would work. Custom barrel would be difficult
due to the way the bolt engages inside the barrel. The author of the article went to a 338-06 with the rebore,

Nailed it!
The older I get, the more convinced I become that a rifles job is to put decent bullet in just the right spot. The Whelen is one of the calibers that bring together a very nice combination of devastating impact on game while keeping recoil at a manageable level encouraging very good hunting accuracy.
Been using the Whelen for 30 years, my go to load is 250 gr Partitions at a hair under 2500 fps, tho I used a bunch of Hornadys back before SPS came on the scene. I have trialed an used a bunch of powders, hard to find one the Whelen did not like.
Have had a S African visiting the last 2 whitetail seasons here in western NYS. He used my Whelen. Took five shots. Buck and a doe each season, plus a fox. Zero trailing on any of them, which mirror most of my experience.
My 2 cents says that the Whelen delivers a terrific amount of performance in a package that most of us mortal humans can easily live with.
Don't need no stinking euro trash!

It was purchased from the DCM on 16 Feb 1938 by Robert V. Culley of Pheonix, AZ. It was built by Niedner and stocked by Linden, an Anderson safety was added sometime during the 50’s and it came out of an estate in Alaska around 15 years ago. Still doing some research on it. Culley was longtime resident of Tucson, AZ.

Does anyone have a definitive answer as to Keith and Whelen being exposed to 9.3x62 and "conveniently" forgetting you don't need a 30-06 as a basis of a larger cartridge in .357 or .366 bore? I have one cow elk with 35 Whelen and one black bear with 9.3x62 so I am firmly in both camps.

Keith knew about the 9.3x74Rimmed cartridge and proceeded to make a 338 out of it....

Early on he did like the 9mm Mauser rifle cartridge.

I would suspect bullet and case availability to be the major problem of the time in regards to the 9.3x62

I am sure rifle loonies like Keith and Whelen knew of the 9.3's but metric designations have never been popular with Americans. At least until the Creedmore era 😜.
Which explains my son's tongue-in-cheek naming of the 9.3x62.
But the 35 Whelen and 9.3x62, when loaded to identical pressure levels, are mighty close, especially with the new loads from Buffalo Bore.
