I have two loads for my Whelens. 225 grain TTSX over 59 grains of IMR-4064. This load goes 2715 fps out of my 26" MGM barreled Encore and 2669 fps out of my 24" barrel Ruger Hawkeye. 250 Speer Hot Cor over 55.5 grains of H4895. This one averages 2556 fps out of my Encore. I have not tried it in the Hawkeye yet. The Encore has a 1:14 twist and the Ruger has a 1:12 twist. The TTSX load shoots well under MOA in both guns. The Hot-Cor is my latest load and gives one hole accuracy at 50 yards with the Encore. Actually, the TTSX load does everything I need it to do, but it is nice to have options. I am anxious to hit a hog with the Hot Cor. I went through a lot of powder in developing these loads. What is amazing is that when the right load comes along there is no question about it. It just clicks. I did try Reloder 15, also Varget, H380 and IMR-4064 when working up something with the 250 grain Speer. H-380 gave good accuracy, but no velocity. H4895 was the best for both accuracy and velocity. This is the first time I have used this powder for anything. I bought it to try with the Speer bullet as nothing else was satisfactory.

There was no greater since of freedom than when I would leave Holiday Park Fish Camp heading my airboat west toward the Big Cypress. Fuel for 4 days, a good machete, an ice chest. No phone, no radio. Just God and me and the Everglades.

225 gr. Sierra or Nosler over IMR 4064 has been my most accurate load in my .35 Whelen, I've been using this combination for 20+ years now and have taken Whitetails with it. I've tried RL-15 and Varget but keep coming back to IMR 4064.

I'm using H4895 in my M7600 35 Whelen. Pretty happy with it as well.

I have been using 225 gr Accubonds over 60 gr of Varget getting 2689 fps from a 22" barrel M700 classic. Taken a number of black bears with it. My supply of Accubonds is getting low, and I'm not sure when they'll be available again. I have several boxes of 250 gr partitions that I may have to use. I even have a box of Hornady 250 gr round nose. So I'm studying the 250 gr loads that others have used.

I'm mainly using this for bear over bait in Canada at range of around 100 yards.

I'll be working up loads for my Whelen soon using RL-15 and 250 gr NPT's, at mag box length of 3.350" I'm still 50 thou off the lands, damn long throated sob, may look at monos if the NPT doesn't shoot.

Mine is to Gunner. Jumps a mile but it dotes on 15 and 225 AB or 250 Partitions. That's for my CDL. No clue how my 7600 is throated. Loaded to fit the mag and it shoots.

In my 7600 35 Whelen 56 gr of IMR 4320, with 250 Speer, around 2520 FPS, under 1" or 55.9 GR of older RL 15. Prefer the 4320 load. Great for moose or bear.

What a great thread!
I have a K98 Mauser action being turned into a 35 Whelen by Gunsmith Ed Lapour right now. I'm itching to get it back. It will have a 24 inch 1-12 Krieger with a brake. I was originally thinking I was going to do a 358 NM but I changed my mind. I've been stock piling all the Original Barnes 250s I can get my hands on.
I've been running QL numbers on this combo for a while. I was like a kid on Christmas waiting for this project to get done. After lurking on this read I am drooling to get started working up loads for it.
Oh, the 358NM? I have been talking to Montana Rifle Company about making me an X2 in 358NM.
I have an Idaho cow moose tag burning a hole in my pocket, but I'll have to use the trusty Ruger '06 for that this year. I'm heading to Alaska to work this September and I will have moose fever by the time I get home to hunt.
