History and Ballistics of the .35 Whelen ammo
The 35 Whelen was invented by the Col. Townsend Whelen, a medium-bore wildcat rifle cartridge, in 1922. It is more powerful than its parent 30.06 Springfield cartridge and does not require a magnum action or bolt face. Also, .35 whelen rifles are popular weapons hunting huge, thin-skinned wildlife. In 1988, Remington standardized the cartridge as a commercial round and chambered it in their Remington model 700 pistol.

The .35 Whelen ammo is a rimless, bottleneck cartridge with a diameter of .358 inches (9.1 mm.
In addition, a neck (.385 inches, 9.8 mm) that extends to the base (.472 inches, 12.0mm). The case length is 2.494 inches and the shoulder diameter is.441 inches (11.2mm) (63.3 mm). The primer type is for a big rifle, and the rifling twist is 1:16. The 35 whelen ballistics and the.350 Remington Magnum cartridges are ballistic twins.
All were in 35 caliber. 35 Whelen is the 30-06 necked up to 35 caliber and it’s about as easy to form from ’06 brass as the 270. Later, an “improved” version of 35 Whelen, having venturi shoulders like Weatherby cartridges, made up, but never caught on. The 35 Whelen, now available in several factory rounds, and factory chambered in several different rifles (although some gunsmiths still sell properly formed brass for it) has racked up a tremendous record all over the world, rivaling the 375 Holland and Holland in its effectiveness.
