I've been pursuing Whitetails since I was 12 years old. Now at age 67 I can attest to the effectiveness of .35 caliber chambered rifles. I hunt with lever and pump action carbines chambered to the .35 Remington, pump and bolt guns in .358 Winchester, bolt guns chambered in .35 Whelen, and one bolt gun in .350 Remington Magnum. I've taken deer with Hornady Flex Tip bullets in both factory loads and handloads in my .35 Remington chambered lever and pump action hunting arms. I've also taken 20 plus deer with my .358 Win chambered rifles. The last seven or eight deer taken have been shot with the 200 grain FTX bullet. Even at the increased velocity of the .358 Win @ 2500 fps the bullets always exited and from all signs, no breakup has occurred. The 35 caliber 200 grain Hornady FTX is one accurate and deadly bullet!!!!!
