Anybody else here have anything to say about the good old 35 Whelen? I like mine! Shoots like a House-a-fire!
I won't argue with you, as you obviously know from where you speak. However, your first statements seem like a pretty good testimonial to me.luv2safari said:I have used mine in Africa and find it up to the task for medium and large plains game out to 250 yards. It should be used with 250 grain bullets to get its true potential.
I have also used it a bit for deer in NW Montana. The 35 Whalen is a good old "cat" that Remington saw fit to domesticate. I wish they had used the Ackley version, however.
I must say that I feel the 338-06 is a better round than the 35. It would have been my choice for a factory caliber before the 35.
Thanks, but better than the guns were the stories that my great uncle told me about his experiences in WWI.luv2safari said:LJ,
You have some very special things there. 8) 8)
Keep them and never let them get away from you...except if you think you might like to trade them off to ME! :wink: :wink:
