    Deer and hogs for sure. The 36 RPP is certainly capable of taking anything in North America. I think I'll play with 180 grain bullets and see how far I can accurately shoot with them. This should be a long range thumper.

    I have plenty of heavy hitting bolts in the safes. I just think it would be cool to have a 300 yd.+ capable Marlin lever for long shots. We have some big fields where I hunt that stretch well beyond a thousand yards.

    Why 35 Whelan brass? It is based on the 30-06. Why can you not use 06 brass?

    That's a good question and one I posed to Adam at RPP early on in our discussions. Apparently, he was having problems forming the 30-06 brass and found the Whelen brass to work much better. I'll leave it to Adam to provide the particulars.

    I worked with '06 brass early on, and while it worked, I kept running into odd issues with neck wall thickness. I'll revisit it though. There isn't any reason it should be less useful than whelen brass in this application. Besides, it will give me an excuse to get mine out of the display case and go shoot it some more. I'll keep you posted on what I find out.

    How much do you have to trim off the 35 whelen cases? Too much for a standard case trimmer?

    Keep us posted, this 36 RPP is an intriguing cartridge option especially as 'bear spray' for those of us favoring a Marlin and living in big bear country!

    The short answer is yes, too much for a standard trimmer in my opinion. The 35 Whelen case length is 2.494" and the 36 RPP case length is 2.13". So, .364" has to come off. Very little of the 35 Whelen neck remains after trimming. I use a 2" mini Bench Top saw I bought at Harbor Freight to cut the brass down. I do final trimming with a standard trimmer. The little bench saw makes short work of the trimming. The saw blade cuts through the brass like a hot knife in butter.
