I have one of the carbinein 35 Whelen, mine has the wood stock and it sholders well, I'm not sold on the reliability of the gun not jamming though. That doesn't mean it jams on me, it just means I'm pessimistic. I only have a 1.5x4 scope on her and use it in the thicketso I really can't tell you what it will do at 100 yards.
My brother has a 750 Woodmaster in .270 Win, and he really likes his. This was the first year he hunted with it, and he shot a couple deer with his last November. I didn't ask him if his has ever jammed, but if it had I'm sure he'd have mentioned it. He shoots nothing but Core-Loks.
