For all big game I shoot .44 Mag. I like my Henry Big Boy .44, and I like my Ruger Super Blackhawk in a cross-draw rig for back up. It's a lot of bite, and a good kick, but with Elk, Moose, Bear, etc., I hate to take chances. I also like to reload the .44, and having only one kind of ammo makes packing for the big hunt even easier.
Of course, now I need to look up 35 Whelen. With all the thumbs up around here, I guess I better get to learning what this round is all about. Geez - never heard of it.
