Here's the future plan:
I currently hunt with a 358 win. BLR (browning lever rifle). I'm exremely fond of it and I usually handload 250 and 200 grain bullets for it. I want to buy another .358, but get the take down version. I was going to have clymer make me a custom set of reamers to ream the chamber to 358 wsm. Replace the orginal bolt face with a short mag. one. Buy a set of custom dies made for the dimensions of the new chamber and resize 325 wsm cases into 358 wsm cases. The take down version would be good for this project and appears that this will be a success. Does anyone think differently? The BLR has a 1:12 twist which is faster than the 35 Whelen's 1:16 twist. So i would essentially have a 6.5 pound 20in. barrelled carbine capable of shooting 250 grain bullets about 300 fps.+ faster than the 2,380 fps. that im getting from my 358 win. handloads.
