Very good! I've hunted and

Very good! I've hunted and harvested with all of them, except the .35 Rem. I owned one for a while, but it never made it to the woods since I already had all or most of the others. 

Good Job!!  Thumbs up

I could have never have

I could have never have gotten them all naned but I am interested in the family. I have owned the first one and have been interested in the last three. I tried to buy a .358 last year but missed the deal by a few hours. I have been looking at a couple of whelens but have not closed the deal there yet either. I will get one before long and I'm pretty sure it will be the Whelen unless a .350 shows up for a better deal. It doesn't really matter as I'm just wanting a 35 in my collection.

The .358 is a great choice,

The .358 is a great choice, especially for someone who likes a lever rifle. The .356 is more for someone wanting something a bit out of the ordinary and perhaps also hand loads too. The .350RM is a great cartridge, but giving exactly the same performance as a Whelen, it's ammo is much more expensive, so also great for a hand loader.

The Whelen is a great cartridge and a couple new factory loads, a 180gr Fusion load and a 200gr Hornady Superformance load make it even better. The 180gr load should be a nice light-ish load for deer at around 2700 FPS and the new Superformance 200gr makes it a nice strong, flat shooter as well @ 2900 FPS.  Yes

One last comment. The owner of a .35 Whelen that uses the best loads available has no need to own a .338WM as the Whelen is as good a cartridge as a .338 when loaded properly. Loads as heavy as 310gr are available and for the record, a .35 Whelen is closer to a .375 H&H in frontal area than it is to a .338.

i thought about that 35

i thought about that 35 remington. i figred it'd be a good little deer gun, and something fun to shoot, but didn't count on not being able to order one at my local shop. i'll have to make a trip to basspro and/or cabelas someday.
