Very happy with this rifle in 35 whelen. Good accuracy using Federal Fusion 200 gr factory ammo but I intend to try others to see what works best. I mounted a 2x7 leupold with low bases and this was a good fit for this rifle. Shot a spike buck that was quartering towards me at about 75 yards. The 35 Whelen packs a pretty good punch. It broke the front shoulder and the deer didn't run very far. Recoil was a little less than my Model 70 Featherweight 30 06 shooting 180 gr loads.

I am really pleased with this rifle/cartridge combo. 22 inch short brush gun for bear and elk. However I have already shot it enough I would be confident on known distance out to 400 yds but would switch to Nosler 225gr. Shooting handloads of 250 gr Speer Hot-Cor and it simply grounds black bears inside 10 yds. Leupold 3i 1.75X6 as I did not anticipate having 300+ yd capability. Very accurate due to phenomenal trigger break. Open sights would certainly have an application in dangerous game guide/PH`;` quick acquisition sights not distance/accuracy.
