Played with my Rem 700 35 Whelen a bit over the last few months at the range. It does shoot exceptionally well. So far I've played with 225gr Sierra Spitzers, & Speer 250gr HCSP. I do concur that they basically hold the same POI at 100yds. I am continually amazed at how well the mid bores and big bores shoot. Best groups so far from the bench are 0.35" for the 225gr's & 0.75" with 250's.
