I have 1 35 Whelen and I'm building another one, but I can't say that it is better than the 338-06. My dad hunts with a 338-06, and there is no significant real world difference between the 2. I used to think the 338-06 might have an advantage in bullet selection, but I don't think that is even a big difference any more. Lots of good .358 bullets out there, and you only need 1 that shoots good for your rifle.Good choice. The 35Whelen is better.
Caliber wise, the only real itch I have left to scratch is an 8x68. I have absolutely no need for it. I just want one.
