I'm quite certain that I would rather have a 35 Whelen firing the 225 gr TSX @ 2700 fps than a 30-06 Spfld. firing the 220 gr Partition @ 2400 fps. I'd be very surprised if the TSX didn't out penetrate the Partition, and I'm dead positive the larger, heavier, faster moving bullet would hit with more authority.

If I remember correctly, at the time he used it, Elmer Keith killed the record grizzly with a 35 Whelen and 275 gr cup and core bullet @ 2300 fps.
