Can he do .35 WCF? Your bolt face would work for it as well as the .405. You’d really need to send him a 30/06 if you wanted the Whelen.

Brass for both the .35 & .405 have gotten scarce here recently. 30/40 brass will work for .35 it’s just a tad short. But full length correct .35 brass can be made from .405 when you can find it. I know Bartram still making brass but heard bad things about them. Too bad Jamesons quit making brass.

I purchased my first 1895 in the late 70's at the old Bagnel Dam show at Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri, it was a pristine .30-40. Over the years I have owned another .30-40, a SRC most of the '95s since then have been .30-06. The prize was an R.F. Sedgely custom stocked SRC, it has deluxe checkered wood with M/ 70 style buttplate, buffalo horn forend tip and Super Grade style swivels. Sedgley even machined a Lyman 48 receiver sight to fit, front sight was a Lyman banded ramp with ivory bead. The most recent rifle was a solid fame .30-06 to which I added a climbin Lyman, it got sold to help finance a hunt.

That's wrong thinking on this forum! wink

My 3 1895s are: 30-03, 35 WCF, and 405 WCF...having one of every caliber is the goal!!!

Ya but it would be a good excuse to get another one of each and then convert them. Of course they all have to be saddle ring carbines! I'd need to stock up on .405 brass, I've got a good supply of .30-40 and I should be set for life on .30-06 so I have plenty to reform.

My three are two .30-40's and a .30-06 but I really want a .405 SRC. I've never seen one in my research so I doubt it's something the factory ever did but what a hammer of a saddle gun!

Hawk reek,

Is there enough steel in the barrel of those 30/40’s to bore em out to .405?

I dont know. Maybe not but then I'd just have to get a new barrel and do a little woodwork to the forend timber.

With 20 inch barrel and 13" length of pull, they are shorter than even short action bolt-rifles. Theres no rear bridge adding length. 38.25 inches is what my scout rifle measures. A scoped 1895 launching 41 caliber 350 grain swift A-frames at 2350 fps, the range and power is in a different league than any other levergun.

Theres no space in my dog sled for a bolt action carbine. It would over hang and certainly take damage from a tree or from tipping sled:

Here's an interesting modification.

Not sure why the pics not coming up, feel free to fix that if anyone would like.

Looks like they used a piece of bolt off the "other" 1895 Winchester on that flatside.

Great looking gun & deer, I've always liked the lever actions.
