35 Whelen
The .35 Whelen was originally developed as a wildcat cartridge in 1922 by Col. Townsend Whelen
for a rifle built by gunsmith James V. Howe (later known as the Griffin & Howe Company).
It was developed by basically widening the 30-06 case and keeping the case length the same.
It is not made by many major ammunition makers today, but is still considered a great caliber
for most all North American game.
Muzzle Velocity: 2750 Feet per Second. Muzzle Energy: 3778 Foot Pounds
