    Cartridges

    So whats a cartridge that'll work with the .308 bolt. Doesn't need to be short action, this thing is old and has plenty of room.

    Would a .35Whelen work? it say's it's based off a 30-06 and I think 30-06 is the same size as a 308 unless I'm wrong in which case I should keep looking

    Yes the 35 whelen is from the 30-06. Above is a list of 30-06 wildcat cartridges

    What is the action and what do you want it to do, and do you want to keep the original barrel?

    Think it's a parkerhale and no not keep the barrel. I want it to do what every other gun in the safe does. kill things 35Whelen had caught my eye with 250grs at 2,500fps.

    All just thought atm it'd be a long long time before I have saved enough to do it

    Might just go with a 30-06. It's cheaper and good enough. just a bit too common thats all but might have to suck it up

    Fark now I'm even confused, how about a .50 cal you'll kill everything you want with that and up to 3 miles, poaching would be a piece of piss?
