I am assuming for primitive. 35 whelen. Better ballistics. Basically a 30-06 necked up to 35 caliber

The .35 is a more practical choice.

Yep. Sorry for the non-clarification. It will be used for primitive weapon hunting.

I don’t even understand how a 35 Whelen qualifies as a primitive weapon. May as well be a 30-06 or .338 Win Mag.

You can use a big bad arse grizzly bear blaster, but you can't use a .30-30

They should just charge $20 extra to use a rifle two extra weekends and let you use whatever you want. A man with a scoped crack barrel .35 is at zero disadvantage.

I've had a .444 for 12 or so years and I love it. If I were buying for primitive today I would go with the .35 whelen due to the ballistics. Either round is great if you're only shooting 200 yards or so.

Doesn't Mississippi allow weapon of choice on private land during primitive?

I'm with you, I hunt with my .444 during rifle season more than my .308.

A .35 Whelen is a 400 yard cartridge. Put a scope with dials on it and it could be a truly long range cartridge.

.35 remmington. The others you mentioned will destroy much more meat, including your shoulders when you shoot them.

Yes they do, and it’s great, I don’t have to look at the calendar to see what the season is, I just go in the woods with my 06 and enjoy

Then why qualify the caliber? Makes no sense.

But to the OP, the answer is definitely 35 whelen. Might look at 350 legend or 35 remmy if you want something a bit lighter recoil.

Everything I have ever heard is that the .35 Whelen is superior.

However, I bought 2 .45-70s the day primitive firearm season was announced and am too cheap to pay for a new rifle for two weekends a year.

I think the intent was for it to be limited to big lead chunkers like .45/70 etc but they didn't realize that really badass .35 cal rifles existed

Hell, a single shot .358 norma mag would be legal. A single shot 375 ruger would be legal. Theres lots of really badass calibers out there .35 and up. Its a ridiculous law.

9.3x62 for the win.
