35 Whelen Loads

Re: 35 Whelen Loads

5.8 lb .35 Whelen?! I hope is has a good recoil pad! I love my .35 Whelen 7600 in the field, but I hate shooting it off the bench!

I haven't handloaded for it yet, but it likes Remy's 250 over their 200.

Re: 35 Whelen Loads

Try 57-59 gr. of Reloader 15 under a 225 gr. Accubond........I use Federal primers....

It seems to be pretty much popular consensus that RL 15 is the best powder out there for the Whelen......

I agree... R15 is the way to go. I have a 7600 that loves it, and know many others with a Whelen that say the same thing. It's a good caliber, and the Whelen and R15 go together like penanut butter and jelly.

I also use Federal primers and 225 grain Accubonds. Darn gun doesn't get hunted with though, it's a shame

Re: 35 Whelen Loads

Another vote for RL-15. I use 59gr under a 225gr ballistic tip and Federal 210 primer. I have 200 of them left and will switch to accubonds when they are gone.

Re: 35 Whelen Loads

I got my first Whelen before Reloder 15 was available and found 59 gr. of IMR 4320 behind a Sierra 225 and WLR primer in reformed R-P '06 brass to be very accurate....

Re: 35 Whelen Loads

60 gr of varget a 225 accubond and federal 210m primer. This is a little brisk off the bench, but accuracy and on game preformance is great. I would like to try this out of a 760/7600 pump. I just can't seem to find one that isn't priced through the roof.

Re: 35 Whelen Loads

I don't own a 35 Whelen (YET) but always thought it would be a nice callbier for a reloader. Since it's a magnum one could reload it down if they desired to a 35 Remington reload or if your were going for dangerous or large big game you could used it as a 35 Whelen.??????


I do love to shoot the 35 Rem...That is one way to get a Encore on the shelf 35 Whelen barrel and use it at both the light end or the magnum end of it's capabilities!!!!

Re: 35 Whelen Loads

I'm glad to hear RL 15 works so good! I already use that in my 22-250 so I have a bunch of it. Thanks for the feedback guys. This gives me a starting point.

The 35 Whelen is NOT a magnum. Yes it can be loaded down to 35 Rem. ballistics but it is not a magnum.
