.35 Whelen

 
.35 Whelen
 
 

Back in 1922, government employees Townsend Whelen and James V. Howe of Springfield Armory developed the .400 Whelen, a wildcat formed by .30-06configuration. During that same year, while Whelen was away on a hunting trip, Howe decided to neck the .400 on down to .35 caliber and thus created what he decided to call the .35 Whelen. With 3500 foot/pounds of energy, the .35 Whelen is more powerful than the .30-06, and quite capable of taking all North American big game. For deer size game, bullets weighing 200 to 250 grains are the best choices. With the possible exception the Nosler225 grain Partition, heavier bullets are better choices for larger game. For elk, moose, and bear, the Speerand Barnes250 grain spitzers at 2500 fps deliver a ton of energy at 300 yards. When zeroed three inches high at 100 yards, both have a point blank range of about325 yards on a bull elk's vital area.
