I recently bought a remington model 7600 in a .35 whelen to use on an upcoming hunt to maine for black bear . I bought some federal trophy bonded bear claw factory ammo 225 grain has anyone had any experience with this caliber and bullet combo Just wondering if this is a good bullet for black bear I was also looking at the barnes tsx bullet in 200 grain.
Any info appreciated thanks

Have hunted with the 35 Whelen since 1966. You do not need "premium" bullets in this caliber for deer to moose or black bear.

Best all-around bullet IMHO is the 250gr Speer loaded to 2500 fps.
