    WTB 35 Whelen brass/ammo

    Does anyone know the whereabouts of some 35 Whelen brass and/or ammo.

    I know it can be formed very easily from 30-06, but with a 30-06 and a 30 Gibbs already (the latter of which I form from 30-06 brass), it would, for obvious reasons, be really good to have the correct headstamp.

    Thanks.

    I don't know - I'll tell you when I take delivery of the rifle later this week!

    A bit of a pumpkin roller - and not really necessary for any New Zealand game (Wild cattle being the one possible exception).

    Having said that Hornady Super Performance (factory spec) is 2910 fps (24inch barrel) with a 200 grain interlock/SP which is fair smoking and shoots pretty flat, relatively speaking (although I would probably take all of that with a pinch of salt).

    In reality I am hoping both 2750fps with a 200 grainer and 2500fps with a 250 grainer are achievable without too much effort. I'll probably start in the middle with a 225gr Accubond.

    I think muzza is sorting me out with brass - thanks everyone.
