Sorry I meant to say "I'd" instead of "I". No I dont have one. But maybe someday. And I agree I havent heard anything good about the Wizard, but they do offer a .35 whelen barrel. I would much rather have the Handi-rifle over the Wizard.

When exactly did Remington and Ruger drop the Whelen in their bolt guns?

Remington stopped cataloging them in 08. Ruger hasn't had them in their catalog in a few years but I saw a few Hawkeyes at gun shows in MT last year.

Same seller, who is from my home area, also has one in .300 Savage, which is rarer than the .35 Remington, and yet it's $4K less.

Wonder why...

Its so sad seeing great cartridges like the .35rem dissapear. And why? because of the magnum/military/high velocity hype. The .35rem is a real deer dropper, but hey, its not great for tactical situations where you could get into a firefight with superzombies at a 600 yard theres no place for it anymore.

The .35 Rem was s good cartridge, but it really did not do anything in a deer hunting situation better than the .30-30 would do it. Someone will bring it back eventually, but probably not on large scale. I own it in a Contender pistol barrel. Ironically, its a much better pistol cartridge than rifle cartridge.
