So I just picked up a 35 Whelen - need some recommendations for ammo. To start with, I don't reload (as of yet) so really looking for good factory loads to try (or custom loaded stuff i.e. Hendershots etc).
Unknown - I have another post about the gun, but it appears to be a custom build on a Mauser action. I just don't know enough about Mausers to tell you more than that. I do have several pics posted on the other thread if you want to take a lookWhat make and model if I can ask?
I started shooting ballistic tips many years ago to get the plastic tip my 700 classic model has a box magazine large enough to put a 375 H&H in it and the 35 Whelen has too much room and the lead tips were getting battered bad to the point that copper jacket would shear lead off.
