    Default Any Rifle manufactures still make a 35 Whelen

    Ive always liked the 35 Whelen on stats, but not sure if there are any current makers of them? Preferably in stainless with a Monte Carlo Stock. Anybody know if im just dreaming? Thanks

    Talking 500th post

    Remington is making the 7600 in .35 Whelen and the new auto. Sometimes they do special runs too. They also make the Mountian in .35 in the custom shop. I think the rifle is made in stainless.

    You can always buy a custom rifle such as HS Precision.

    GNG up in Los-Anchorage had a couple M-700 Classics in 35 Whelen.
    Plus a couple of the newer semi-autos with a horrible trigger pull.

    I was trying to find a controlled fed in 35 Whelen and ended up buying a Ruger m77MKII in 350 Rem Mag. Which has the same ballistics.

    Of course, one week later there was a Mauser chambered in 35 Whelen up in Kenai. Figures....

    Grices Gun Shop in Pa offers a Rem 700 in 35. They offer special runs of different weapons at different times.

    Just could not remember the name of Grices.........

    There is always Guns America. Some day I will go on there and find a .350 Norma Mag, LH in stainless.

    Default 35 whelen 750 woodsmaster

    I have recently purchased a remington 750 woodsmaster caliber 35 whelen and I must say it functions quite nicely both the action and accuracy at 100 yds. The only draw back is the availability of factory loads which is why I am going to start reloading my own which opens up new avenues for bullet weights.

    Default Dummy loads

    Load up a couple of dummy loads and try them through the mag. before you start making full loads. Another thing, try to find one standard load for everything. I like the 225 Sierra. It just fits the bill for most Alaskan game.
    It is a great round!

    Default 35 Whelen

    Remington currently offers the 35 Whelen in the CDL, which is a very nice rifle IMHO. I handled one at Boondocks the other day, had a decent trigger from the factory. I dont recall the price though.
