I am going to build a larger caliber big game rifle. I am undecided if I want a 338-06 or a 35 Whelen. I have narrowed it down to these two for the simple fact that they intrigue me and both are 06 casings sized up. I would appreciate any input from those of you who own or have experience with either one. I am in no hurry to decide and have done quite a bit of research on both.
