I like the way you think,lol👍
I was actually leaning towards the .338-06 vs the .35Whelen anyhow.
The MV and downrange energy of both cartridges is near identical with 250gr bullets,,but I'm thinking better BCs and wider range of weights and bullet selection gives the .338 the edge with a lot more reloading options and better terminal performance downrange.
It's purpose of use will be a bush gun where I'd expect most shot opps to be well within 100y,but if I do need to stretch one out there down a cutline or wutever the .338 with the much better BCs will have more legs with any given bullet weight.
