    It is a superb round. Wish I had one in a Win. mdl 70. or Browning BAR.

    I've got a Remington 700 in 350 Rem Mag, which is the same thing as a 35 Whelen in a different shape. I bought the rifle because it was in nearly mint condition at a very good price, and have come to love it. The 200 gr. Hornady SP I've used on black bear would be a good deer bullet, but I'm now trying the 225 gr. Sierra on the bears. I haven't got to shoot one with the Sierras yet. If the price is right and the rifle fits you jump on it.

    It shoots a 38 cal bullet---I have one I built using a Mauser K98 receiver. We call it a "Poor man's 375" . It packs a good recoil with 220 -250 grn jacketed bullets. It will take down anything in North America. A Marlin 336 in 35 Rem will do the same job.

    Nonsense. A 35 Whelen with a 225 gr. Spitzer boat tail will do 2600 fps, easily out classing a 35 Remington.

    I shoot the 220 Speer out of mine. I’m not on the gas hard @ 2550fps.


    I neck up 270 brass.

    I've got a 35 rem in a marlin 336 sc and it's a thumper but I think a 35 whelen has too have more knock down

    It does have more energy, so it has the potential to do more work.


    I’ve never understood what knockdown power is. If a round could blow a deer off it’s feet it would also blow you off the ground when you pulled the trigger.


    the whelen is a classic round that has good manners and is easy to find accuracy with. Kind of like the 45/70, you can load it up or down. Pistol bullets to heavy rifle bullets.

    I really don't need it but need has nothing to do with it, I've got more rifles than I can use in our short Missouri gun season, but I sure would like to go on a bear hunt and it would be the right gun for that
