Re: 35 Whelen AI vs. 358 Hawk

If anyone needs any 35 cal 225 grain nosler ballistic tips I am way over stocked with them and need to sale some. They are the ones marked 35 Whelen on the box. They are very accurate and have excellent performance on game. I use them in all my 35 cals from the whelen to my 358-378 wby's and have taken mostly bear and elk with them. I have about 20 boxes and only need about ten so I will ship them for 14.50 per box if anyone wants some. This is way under dealer price.

Re: 35 Whelen AI vs. 358 Hawk

All kind folks here,

I acquired a H&R RMEF single shot in 35 Whelen. I was looking at having a 35 Whelen A.I. built but had to delay this and then ran across the H&R. I took it to my gunsmith and asked if it was possible to bump the single shot out to the A I dimensions. On a bolt rifle it would be simple to shorten the breech end of the barrel and then recut the chamber. This isn't feasible with the single shot because of the mono block. He suggested the 358 Scovill. I was also looking at the 35 Gibbs. I want to stay with a 30-06 based cartridge but want something that hits like Thor's hammer. Any wisdom y'all might chose to share ?

The 35 whelen does hit like Thor's hammer all by itself. No improvements needed. I have two loads. A 225 tsx at 2575fps and a 225 ballistic tip at 2750fps. Both have killed game with extreme severity! Varget is the powder on both loads. The whelen is no joke, extremely powerful killer. From a huge buffalo bull to hogs, deer, coyotes and Even cottontails, it does it all. We call mine the bone crusher. ..

+1 my whelen is a ruger 77 hawkeye tossing 220 speer fp's at 2700 fps with rl15. Hard hitting rifle for what it is. Only my 338 and 375 really hit harder.
