I got my .35 Whelen today. I have a lot of questions. For you guys that have one. What are your pet loads for:
1. Elk
2. Caribou
3. Moose
4. Black bear
5. Brown/Grizzly bear
Also, what is the best value for reloading equipment? I don't want to spend a fortune for things I really don't need. Can you get a press for around $100 and what kind?
I want to reload, .35 Whelen, .30-06, .308, 7.62x54, .223, 8mm Mauser, .357mag, .300 WM, .45-70, and either a .44mag or .45LC. My next rifle will probably be a .375 HH, then I don't even have a .30-30 or .44mag or .45LC lever gun. I want to reload the more rare rounds and most expensive first. I might later also buy a .338 WM. Just depends on the deals I can find.
Thanks.

I would stick with a 225-250gr bullet for all game, whatever bullet shot best for you. All of the 358 cal bullets out there will work pretty good for the game you mentioned. I would take a really good look at the 250gr partition.

Dude, if you live in Dixie, those hunting trips are going to suck your wallet dry. Brown/grizzly bear and Elk are the toughest and require the heaviest bullets. moose don't require a real heavy slug,just a few lighter ones. They do not realize they are dead from the 1st shot! Using ONE bullet for every thing is an easy way out. Pick a 225 or 250 grain bullet that shoots good in YOUR gun and you are ready for any thing.!
