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?
We have the same rifle - special ordered it as soon as it was announced back in the 80's - it has shot hundreds of rounds of all sorts of bullets, have never had any problem with the tips getting deformedI 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.
