Re: 7600 project
Townsend Whelen first developed the .400 Whelen. He said it just wasn't practical because of the hassles that come with that tiny shoulder. He said he felt the .35 Whelen which was named in his honor was a better cartridge. Some reloaders have even had trouble with that shoulder though. I think I'd do .338-06 but I'm not the one building a rifle.
