.35 Whelen is simply the .30-'06 necked up to .35. It is in no way related to the .35 Remington, nor is it interchangeable. I'd stick to regular factory .35 Rem ammo with the 200 grain bullet.

The ears are stops so you don't push the clip in too far. The rounds should be pushed into the magazine, stripping them off the clip. The clip is just to hold them together for easier (?) loading.

BTW, try resting the rifle on something soft (rolled up jacket, soft guncase folded in half, etc). That may be why your shots are high and right. Any rifle will tend to "bounce" off a hard rest like that.
