I have another cartridge profile for you today where we dive into the specifics of the 35 Whelen and how it stacks up against other popular centerfire rifle cartridges like the 30-06 Springfield, 9.3x62mm Mauser, and 375 H&H Magnum. In this episode I talk about the development of the 35 Whelen, how it compares to those other cartridges, the strengths and weaknesses of the 35 Whelen, and who would be best served by the advantages the 35 Whelen offers.
