Opinions large and small, worth everything you pay for them.
Veddy Interestin ' I wonder if it is too powerful for lever action chambering.
Kind of interesting. It was a little confusing at first when they mentioned that it had less recoil than a .243 Winchester until I did some calculations. A .243 with a 100 gr bullet at 2960 fps yields about 10 ft.lbs recoil in a 7 lb rifle. If you pushed a 150 gr hunting bullet to 1950 fps in the same rifle it would yield about the same recoil. So depending on their bullet weight and velocity it would be possible. It would probably be a good deer round out to 200 yards or a bit more. I had a 20 in. rifle barrel made in .357 Maximum for my T/C Contender and it looks like this new one probably has similar performance. I would consider that nothing to sneeze at in a handy bolt action.........
That round probably would have been a great woods rifle in a Savage M99.......
"I had a 20 in. rifle barrel made in .357 Maximum for my T/C Contender and it looks like this new one probably has similar performance.

Choate makes (or made) a steel muzzle break that when PERMANENTLY WELDED to barrel converts to just over carbine (16 1/4") length. Along with carbine stock, you had a very short brush carbine - excellent for hog or deer hunting in heavy cover. Finding Max cartridge cases is plenty expensive though.This one is different. If price holds up, you definitely are on to something. This one should interest hunters.
At the stated price of $10 a box this may find an audience. If the price is comparable to other deer rounds then it's just another solution in search of a problem.
Congratulations. You've made an under powered .35 Remington.
