I want a .35 caliber. I've done quite a bit of reading here and on other sites. I've narrowed it down to a .358 Win or a .35 Whelen. I've seen some good examples on here of .358 Win accuracy. Is the .35 Whelen just as accurate?
I plan on using the rifle in the lower 48 mostly, but may be used here some.
So far, I know the main advantage of .35 Whelen over .358 Win is the .35 Whelen factory ammo is more readily available. Some will say the .35 Whelen provides better distance. I probably won't shoot past 250-300 yards anyway, so I'm not sure this is a true advantage for me. I also know the Whelen will send the 250 gr bullets and up with more authority. Am I missing anything.
