Default Which calibers/guns would you like to see brought back or made?

A couple years back I was looking to buy a 35 whelen that Ruger had out. I debated it for about a month before I said. "maybe next year!" I've been kicking myself ever since. I'd love to see Ruger bring it back..... heck I'd just love to see more whelens period.

On the 35 caliber front, I'd like to see Marlin bring back the .356 Winchester.

On the ammo front, I'd love to see Hornady start loading for the .260 remington. Maybe a 129 grain sst and a 140 grain light magnum interbond.

Just dreaming.

Oh, how I know that feeling! Same gun/cartridge too, the Ruger in 35Whelen. So, what's on my wish list. Here's a few:

Ruger 77 in 35Whelen
Ruger 77 Ultra-Light - 260Remington
Ruger 77RSI - 7x57
Ruger 10/22 laminated stock with 20" target grey barrel.
Marlin 336 in 356Win.

358Winchester in a carbine style rifle such as the Remington Model 7 or a Ruger 77.
260 Remington - a couple good factory varmint loads (with 90-100gr. HPBT bullets)
7x57 - Hornady to bring back the 154gr. load.

I would like to see the Savage 99 come back, especially in 358 Win and 250 Savage. I would also like to see a Marlin in 375 Win available again along with the ammo.

IMHO, if the old stuff was so great it wouldn't have went away.
So much to chose from now, some of which won't survive.
Guess I'm happy with what's available.

Sorry,

I would like to see Weatherby chamber the 7mm-300 Wby. Mag., but there is no real market for a cartridge between the 7mm STW and 7mm RUM. Good luck.

If anyone has a .358 Shooting Times Alaskan they would like to part with, I would love to hear about it.
