    180 xtps in 35 rem

    can any one help me with reloading data for the hornady 180 xtp in the 35 remington. i have just obtained a couple hundred and would like to shoot them in my 336. i was also wondering if anyone has used them to hunt deer

    The data is not readily available. I found H335 worked well in the .35 Rem with Hornady 180gn XTP HPs.

    Start at least 10% below this load and work up. The first photo shows the 158, 180 and 200 with 180 seated in the case.

    Second photo shows the group and loading data.

    Swany, I bet if you put a scope on that rifle you could tighten up that group. LOL Very impressive shooting! I would think that bullet would take care of anything I run across in the woods.

    That 180 is intended for the .357 Max and for shooting steel, but due to the design I tried it for deer, for that it does extremely well. Far as powder is concerned I think any in the burning rate near H335 would be doable, but the load given is a very stout one.

    H4895 should work well. Work up loads based on the 180 gr Speer. I would start at least 10% below Hodgdon's max and work up.

    thank you all, i was wondering how it would work on deer. i have used it in a max to punch paper (i have a 10 inch max in a contender) it shot well crimped in ether canalure i hope that's the right word, i was concerned about how it would work in a 35 rem with the extra velocity possible with a 336 or 760
