I've been archiving articles on 35s for about 12 years and hope to compile a bibliography and post it. I soon hope to have some more good articles here! Check back. There are a few other good ones right now on my "links" page.
.35 Whelen: overlooked, misunderstood, vastly underrated - an informative and thoughtful article by Robert Boatman, well written, presenting the 35 Whelen as a member of the "Fatal Five".
35 WHELEN...TOP HUNTING CARTRIDGE of the 20TH CENTURY - good title for a good article by Paco Kelly taken (and unzipped) from sixgunner.com (sixgunner backissues link not working now - ???) - archives. Paco has 30 years of experience with the 35 Whelen in Africa and North America and lists his best loads!!!
BLR .358 Winchester- just like mine! Good reading and gun/bullet photos.
WINCHESTERíS SLEEPER..358 WCF... - author Paco Kelly concludes "... with proper reloading it is a far better and much more powerful and longer range cartridge than it has been given credit for..." This an informative piece with comparison info on other calibres too.

Handloading the 350 Remington Magnum - by Stan Skinner - good info including load data chart and discussion including good bullet pics.

Hawk Cartridges A lineup of useful wildcats- article by Wayne van Zwoll on Hawk Wildcat Cartridges (which includes a great "35"). From "Handloader, Ammuntion Reloading Journal" issue #193, June 1998. Copyright Wolfe Publishing, & Mark Harris Publishing Inc.
Hawk Wildcat Cartridges- ditto -another article by Wayne van Zwoll (from June 98 issue of Petersen's Rifle Shooter)
358 CRG- From the Land of Oz - essentially a short action 35whelen based on a necked up 338RCM case - very cool
The .35 HCR Is One Bone-Crushing Middle-Bore- essentially a 35/338Win wildcat by another name - a great cat and so close to being a 358Norma.
The .35 Whelen in Zimbabwe
Interesting article by Al Borchardt
in African Hunter Online Vol.5 No.1 February 1999 (some load data included - borrowed from Finn Aagaard). After the adventure the writer remarks on the 35 Whelen,
"On this Safari, five animals were taken with seven shots fired. In each case the rifle, a Ruger M-77, and bullets Speer and Nosler 250 grain performed excellently."
Interesting reading and sooo true about the medium velocity 35's capabilities I think!

Here's an article about rechambering a Marlin lever in 35 Remington to 358 Winchester
The 35 Whelen - a "classic cat"
Walk on the Wild Side- Field and Stream article by Jim Carmichel on wildcat cartridges that mentions the 35 Whelen incidentally as among those cartridges "...wildcatters have developed...that evolved into some of our best and most popular factory rounds".
The 35 Whelen is a Recommended Griz Gun Calibre!
Field and Stream article on hunting browns advises;
A grizzly gun should, above all, pack enough wallop to drop a bear hard and fast. You do not want to chase after a wounded grizzly. The .30/06 and 7mm Mag. are about as light as a hunter should go--better yet are the .300 Mag, .338 Mag, and .35 Whelen.
