    Bullets For The 35 Whelen

    One of the owners of Hammer Bullets told me that he didn't think that 66 grains of CFE223 would get this bullet up to pressure. So I never shot the CFE223 load. Does Quick Load take into account that Whelens have fairly long throats?

    Bullets For The 35 Whelen

    I don't think that I'll have a problem stabilizing any 35 caliber bullet since my Whelen is a 10 twist

    Cutting Edge Bullets

    I was thinking more in line with a 400 grain solid #13 in the 458 Win/ Lott. Instead of the 450. A mono metal expanding & solid bother at 400 grains as an all around combo. What is your opinion of this combo

    How many people have a 35 whelen?

    Sorry to break this to you but there is only a small amount of energy transfer and it is totally untraceable. Momentum does infact transfer in all collisions.

    How many people have a 35 whelen?

    Exactly. People over look the Whelen's best attribute when say hunting big bears the Whelen has a higher round count in the magazine in a handy package

    How many people have a 35 whelen?

    You may want to learn a bit more physics. A bullet strike is an inelastic collision, where energy isn't conserved. An elastic collision energy is conserved.

    How many people have a 35 whelen?

    358 Norma Mag is for all intents and purposes a necked up 338 win and it is about 100 FPS faster than the 338 win

    How many people have a 35 whelen?

    I never quote Kinetic energy figured because they do not relate to lethality. Energy figures don't kill game, holes through vitals is what kills. Another advantage of the 35 Whelen VS the big fat magnum cartridges is more magazine capacity. As far how the Whelen is able to get the speeds...

    How many people have a 35 whelen?

    The Whelen doesn't have the BC of a 300 win but it is faster with the same weight bullets. I'm getting 3280 with 180 grain TTSX. That is certainly faster than a 300 Winn 180 grain. I've owned and shot 300 winn's and 338 Winn decades longer than I've owned a 35 Whelen But when a 35 Whelen can...

    How many people have a 35 whelen?

    Not grasping at straws at all. A belt is good exactly for what? You may want to read the data again Speer lists 64.1 grains of CFE223 as max with a 250 grain bullet. More frontal area is exactly tha More.

    And less frontal area I'm getting 2745 FPS out of mine with 64 grains of CFE223

    How many people have a 35 whelen?

    Since you have an engineering background I'm sure you realize that the same weight bullet in the larger bore has a larger expansion ratio. Here is 338 win mag data from Speer

    How many people have a 35 whelen?

    If the older powders are used to achieve these speeds you will have pressure problems. The Speer data is using Power Pro Varmint, 2000MR and CFE223 fir these exceptional velocities, no one else has used them in this application to my knowledge.

    How many people have a 35 whelen?

    The 250's at 2700 plus makes the Whelen super impressive in my humble opinion. I was able to achieve 2745 FPS out of my Highwall

    I’m really Dumb!

    Checking zero on my 30-06 day before deer season, second shot went 8" high. Ejected the case and noticed it didn't look right. On closer examination I noticed it was a 308. Still have no idea how that mix up happened, because I didn't own a 308

    It has the stock barrel and they are 28". Mine started life as a 30-06 and I sent it to JESS Rebore to have him rebore to 35 Whelen.
