Barnes 35 Whelen 180Grain has an interesting history. It was designed by James Howe, of Griffin and Howe, partially in response to letters from Leslie Simpson and Stewart Edward White, the 35 whelen 180 grain suggesting that a good all-round rifle for African use would be one of 333 to 350 caliber, with a bullet of 250- to 300 grains (ideally 275 at 2500 fps. Both men (along with Roy Chapman Andrews and the Rev. Dr. Harry Caldwell, who were active in Asia,) perhaps the finest big game shots our country has produced, were aware of the outstanding performance of the 318 Westley-Richards with a 250-grain bullet, the 333 Jeffrey with a 300-grain bullet and the 350 Rigby with a 310-grain bullet on thin-skinned dangerous and non-dangerous game in Africa. It is of passing interest that the bullet for the old British 333 Jeffery is much like the 300-grain copper tube bullet which Winchester introduced for the 338 Magnum.Barnes 180 grain 35 whelen ammo

The Barnes 180 grain 35 whelen ballistics was the first of 3 (three) efforts by Griffin and Howe to produce a cartridge that would meet this ideal. All were in 35 caliber. 35 whelen barnes ammo in stock The 35 Whelen is simply the 30-06 necked up to 35 caliber and it’s about as easy to form from ’06 brass as is the 270. Later, an “improved” version of the 35 Whelen, with venturi shoulders like Weatherby cartridges, was made up, but it 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. It was originally designed, partially, as a substitute for the 375 H & H, since rifles for it could be made up using inexpensive 30-06 actions rather than costly magnum-length Mauser Actions It has killed, with aplomb and efficiency, all of the trophy animals in the world, with the possible exception of the “Big Three” (elephant, rhinoceros, and cape buffalo.) It can be loaded down to barnes 35 whelen ammo speeds for light recoil and pot-shooting, or loaded up to provide terrific stopping power–more than should ever be needed by a competent rifleman facing American big game. Although not legal in certain parts of Africa for dangerous game (some countries require that rifles of at least 375 or 400 caliber be used,) solid nose bullets are available so that, in a pinch, it would probably serve. It is easy to rebarrel an action to this cartridge– it does not even require opening up the bolt face or free-boring; the rimless brass for it, as with the 358, is cheaper and easier to manufacture than the belted brass necessary for the 350 Remington, 35 Griffin and Howe (or Holland and Holland, as it is sometimes known) and 358 Norma Magnum. There is still a great future awaiting the 35 Whelen and, now that the 22-250 has been legitimized, perhaps we can hope that the 35 Whelen ( 35 whelen 180 grain ballistics ) will meet the same good fortune.

    Good product. Used this round for years and it is awesome.

  2. Toddy V

    I have not had chance to shoot these yet, but feel confident that the performance will meet my expectations as I have used these in other calibers

  3. KNelsonx91

    Target Ammo is an easy site to use.. Price cheaper than most site… Can find alot of scopes in stock & read reviews on them.. Carry alot of different brands… Ammo selection is great

    The best for my hunting needs, its very accurate even out to 300 yds. Wish Barnes would let me know what kind of powder they use. Lol

  5. Kyle Hunter

    Would buy again. Great performance

  6. TPeter84

    First ammo I tried in my handi-rifle for primitive weapon season in Louisiana. Shot well in my short rifle out to 300 yds. I zeroed at 240yds….3″ high at 100yds. Three shots under 2″ at 100 yds. Shot a buck opening morning at 208yds….exit wound and only ran 14yds. Shot a big Doe the following morning at 80yds….never moved. I did experience one misfire out of the entire box.

  7. DWilliams

    Great product that arrived quickly. Have tried different rounds in my CVA Scout but this one is the most constant. I would recommend that anyone should give this brand a try. TargetAmmo store was one of the few places that I found that had what I was looking for and much more. I will definitely be shopping there more often.

  8. Dr Johnson

    My order took some time to ship, but once it did, it was delivered very quickly. Haven’t had a chance to shoot them to see how they perform and group, but you can tell that these are newly manufactured rounds

  9. MC Milles

    Perfect dear cartridges accurate perfect expansion not over kill it doesn’t ruin any meat.

  10. Cpt Donovan

    They group great at the range and when it comes time to drop the hammer in November they don’t disappoint.

    This may be the best bullet/calibre combination for deer under 250 yards available. The deer did not take a step
