Wow! I like this stock!!!

If you will remember, I recently upgraded the stock of my .35 Whelen from a B&C Medalist to a Boyd Laminate. Since that post, I had my friend aluminum pillar and Devcon bed the action into the stock. Along with floating the barrel. Well, I finally made it to the range today with some of my previous loads.

These were the first 3 rounds out of the gun!!!!

Holy Crap!!!

Recoil is lighter than the B&C. Pleasant, even. My only complaint is the angle/design of the grip. I pretty much have to float off of it to get a correct angle for me and I'm not the fondest of the "flat" spot behind the trigger guard. Other than that...........I'm happy.

Adjusted 1/4" left and fired another shot into the paster. Adjusted up 2 MOA and fired a final round.

Good to go.

I plan to take a deer with this rifle this season. To date, I've only taken a 290 pound hog.

Looks like this is going to be a .35cal year.

    Way to go!

    I am looking for a Marlin 336 in .35 Remington and hope it is just sub MOA...

    Thanks. I'm still waiting for the180gr pistol bullets bullets I want to load in my .35 Remington. Currently, it's sighted with 200gr RN and seems to do alright.

    Funny as you make your .35 Whelen heavier I'm looking for ways to lighten mine.
    You suck and I hate you... :tooth:

    You can lighten it by sending it to me.

    You know there is a website you can check on these right?

    But, does it break the code?

    Think I broke the code, but you left something out.
