True, but it sure is a good plinker lately with a 160is grain SWC and 10 grains of Green Dot.

I'm with you, though. I'm pretty much resigned to never hunting anything bigger or tougher than Kansas white tails for the rest of my time and I'm pretty well convinced I could do that with a .22 LR if I was so inclined and it were legal.

This fella, JES, in Oregon has made a career out of
reboring rifles to bigger calibers, boring old .270s
and .30-06s to .35 Whelen seems to be his bread and
butter and I have heard nothing but rave reviews about
results and turn around is quick. If you wanted that
old Remington to be a good .35 Whelen, $250 and two or
three weeks is all it takes.

I have a 35 Whelen and a 35 Rem. I've shot 200 gr cast in the 35 Rem but
never used any cast in the Whelen. I shoot 250 gr Hornady RN in it. I've
never thought about using a 350 gr bullet. It would be a hoss though.


Don't settle for less!
