A 375 Winchester would be nice for closer shots, and your Savage ML could take care of the longer ones.

I know some guys are necking up a .243 or .25 WSSM to 35 cal. The case length is short enough, pretty much duplicates 358 Win ballistics.

if necked up to be straight walled, the length restriction does not apply but they would still be illegal as a wildcat round.

Your right Redblood, some great calibers readily available in a good hunting pistol are thrown out with these restrictions! Your Savage smokeless however is more than sufficient imo. I would rather have it in hand than any pistol myself! Best production MZ in existence IMO!
