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

are tbbc considered cup/core bullets or arent bonded bullets in this category
TBBC bullets are not traditional "cup n' core" construction. Anything that has the word "bonded" in it does not fit the description. To answer your original question, any 35 caliber bullet that is designed to expand, and not meant for a pistol/revolver, will meet your objectives. You really don't need to go with a premium bullet, but if it makes you feel better, go for it. The bear is not going to complain one way or the other, unless your shot placement is off.
