    All sorts of CCI SV have been selling for ~$250/case delivered (so $25/brick); at least three internet sellers recently. Relatively recently there was a MidwayUSA sale, and then TargetSports USA just a few days ago. I can't see paying more than...

    Not an exact answer to your query, but here was my experience: Remington 660, .350RM (same case capacity as the .35Whelen). Twist rate 1:16" ---------- 158gr Winchester JHP, 2500 fps, 0.8" avg (3-shot groups) @ 50 yds (about the best...
