Although the 35 Whelen was developed in 1922, it remained a wildcat cartridge until Remington began selling a Model 700 chambered for 35 Whelen ammo in 1988. The caliber is used for big game hunting, particularly in North America. Although not as widely known as its .30-06 Springfield parent case, the larger 35 Whelen bullets are .358 inches/9.1 mm in diameter, and this changes the ballistics considerably. Using 180 gr to 250 gr bullets, muzzle velocity averages about 2,724 fps (feet per second) and average muzzle velocities around 3,483 ft-lb (foot-pounds). The maximum effective range is about 400 yards for big game hunting, making it an excellent contender for going after that big trophy and is popular among handloaders.
