To the 35 whelen shooters, how is this caliber, recoil, etc . I already have 7600 in 30-06, I wouldn't mind adding another deer rifle . Most of my rifle hunting is Maine/Pa/NY.
Any input is appreciated

I've been shooting one for about 15 years or more and really like it. Recoil is similar the a 30-06, as is trajectory. CorLokt's in 200 or 250 grains are accurate and I have had good results on deer. The last few years I switched to Federal Trophy Bonded Bear Claws, 225 grains. Perfect tough bullet for everything in North America, and not too much for a 300 pound Maine buck . Pictured are 3, 35 Whelen Carbines. The other pictures shows the cabines before I put the wood stocks on them. The first two at top are 35 Whelen "full length" 7600's.

If ever any of the 35 whelens need to be moved to make more room for another gun keep me in mind, lol

I have an 06 and whelen 7600. I would say the whelen kicks a little harder but it's not bad. If you're comfortable with the 06 then you'll be fine with the whelen. I havent shot anything with the whelen yet but I like this guys reviews of it.

I only own the Whelen. Recoil not bad. Shoot a 225 Sierra hand load. Deer I’ve shot with it are typically a bang flop type shot.
