Had some cc points burning a hole in my pocket, and my interests are long rooted in the 30’06 case. The 35 Whelen has always intrigued me as well as single shot rifles. Modern rifles are truly magnificent now, as are optics. They are far better machined than those of 30 years ago or more. So I took the light plunge and got a CVA Scout in 35 Whelen and will scope it up with a 2x7. Seems like a fun cheap gun. I don’t think I’ve ever shot anything over 300 yards in my life, so seems like a decent fit. This will be my first step into anything over .30 caliber, and I’m hoping this is a good fit for my hunting travels. Happy to take input on factory ammo experiences, as my handloading days are done.
