Anyone here hunt with either of these calibers? I'm looking for a non magnum step up from a 30-06 for Elk and Bear. I hunt non with a 30-06 so I kind of lean towards those calibers based on the 30-06 case. I know the .338-06 is a Wildcat and would require either drilling out an existing barrel or a custom rifle (I would build one based on a Savage 110 action) The .35 whelen is not hard to find in various rifles. Looking at the ballistics they are very close. Of course with the speed going to the .338 and the wieght going to the .35 I know on this site finding people into this type of firearm will be a little hard but I figured I would ask.
