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

I would go with Barstool's advice. I don't own a 35 Whelen, but have researched the heck out of the caliber. I would love to have one for black bear hunting especially in a Remington 7600. You made a great choice.

good luck on your hunt....
