Why not just buy a Savage 110 long action. They are cheap, proven, strong, extremely accurate, and highly conducive to home builds. If you were looking for a complete rifle, I have an old model J series 110 with detachable mag, in 7mm rem mag. Excellent condition with pristine bore. Beautiful walnut stock. I'll sell it for $500. Grab an OughtSix bolt head and you're in business. The trigger breaks like glass at around 2 pounds. 1 to 1.25 inch groups at 100yds common. Better than that on a good day. Then sell the barrel, stock, and other remaining parts piece meal to recoup investment.

You really should take a serious look at Sarco! One thing I can suggest is instead of .35 Whelen, look at 9.3x62. It buries the Whelen in every catagory, and a Mauser, large ring is the perfect doner rifle. I shoot a 9.3x57 in a small ring Mauser. It comes really close to .35 Whelen ballistics and can shoot heavier bullets. There would be less work on the rifle to change from 8x57 to 9.3x62. It seems stupid, But 1mm in case length requires mag well work. OAL in the cartridges are as follows, .35 Whelen: 3.34", 9.3x62: 3.29"
FYI, The 9.3x62 is a very popular dangerous game cartridge in Africa. The .35 is not allowed for this purpose. I can tell you, That .366" 286gr bullet from a 9.3x57 packs a big wallop.
