Well, I'm still loading 35 Whelen for my preacher but at the same time buying him some loading equipment so he can do it on his own.I've given him a press, a scale. a powder measure + several dies set that I was dbld. up on.NOT 35 Whelen. I am not giving away my only set of 35 Whelen dies. Is anyone willing to pass along a set of dies? Kinda dumb, but it never hurts to ask.


Never mistake motion for action.

My guess is to have a calibre that could match the 338 Winchester for velocity with equal sectional density bullets as the WSM case is a little smaller than the 338 Winchester. A 35 WSM would be in the slow lane for equal sectional density bullets.

That’s cool on a whole ‘nother level.

There is only one 35 cooler than that and it’s the 350 Rigby, period.

Yep, 350 G&H is correct...Mine was a mod -70 pre 64 or pre war super grade..At that time the problem was bullets were too soft at its velocity, but it killed never the less, they went off like a bomb inside..Probably were 35 Rem bullets...I dumped it.With some of Todays bullets it would be a damn fine caliber..

Wow, Ray. I bet you wish you still had that rifle with today's bullets as you mentioned.

But, you'd just sell it...

And I'd buy it! dancing

Surefire, only if I didn't get it first. I'm enjoying all the info here as I'm a 35 nut. I have a few, including multiples of some, 358 Winchester, 4 I think, 350 RM two, 35
whelen sold, 9x56 M/S, and some others on the drawing board. Not to mention four 9.3s. Be Well, Packy

What bullet weight is the bullet in the 350 G and H Magnum? I think the box says 270 grain which is perfect.

My problem with the 35 has always been too little weight bullets. 250, 270/275, 300/310 should have been the standard.

Not 180, 200, 225. For deer it does not mater. In my mind the 358 should be a big bear and moose cartridge. The American equivalent to the 375HH. Like the 9.3x64, 9.3x66, or 9.3x62 are in Europe.

IMHO a 35-300 HH would be a cooler cart with a looooong neck for cast boolits but I am a fan of G&H. I dub thee 358 Giraffe!

One thing that has surprised me is with the resurgence of the 416 Rigby and in cheap rifles like the CZ that the 350 Rigby has not had a run. Might sell a few in the CZs.

I reckon Winchester could sell quite a few 300 H&Hs if they were made as companion rifles to their 375 H&Hs an that includes price. Be lots of profit in each rifle when you think the 375 costs more than 270 etc Super Ggrade but comes with the shit wood.

A fine matching pair of 350 and 416 Rigby would be sweet.

I'd love to have a 350 Rigby to accompany my 416 Rigby. But I'd need factory ammo as well...

My last two safaris with Andrew in Zambia has been close to this (2)-rifle battery: a 35 Whelen and a 404 Jeffery. I really like this combo, and ballistically speaking, it's almost identical.

Is more needed than this...

Wiki on the 358 Norman Mag,

"Norma's factory ammunition for the .358 Norma drives a 250-grain bullet at 2880 fps and produces more than 4,600 ft-lbs (foot-pounds) of kinetic energy.."

Now, that's impressive!

Sure that isn't a 250 gr. @ 2,780 fps?

At any rate, a damn fine 35 caliber round! tu2

You are right on that one, I'm having Joel Accerman in Dickinson build me a second one on a Interarms Mark X Mauser.

Surefire,
Your just too personal! rotflmo

If I did sell it today it would be for a 35/20mm, but come to think of it Id damn sure sell it too, and quickly...That's like my Gibbs imp. on a 7.5 lb rifle, one shot and down the gunshow road...

Really like to pry the coffins off necro-threads.

The most practical 35 Whelen is the original, BUT
the Brown-Whelen or 35 Whelen Ackley Imp will push
a 250 gr bullet into 2600 FPS territory.
With a Woodleigh or Nosler bullet, it will handle
anything that walks in North America and most African game. Easy to shoot and reload. I have a 35 Whelen on a custom pre-64 Model 70 that looks like a Super Grade.

I am finally building my 358STA. Maybe not the most powerful, but the most powerful in Nolser’s reloading manual.
