    35 Rem. ammo or brass?

    I got my 336 back together ( re-finished the forearm and butt stock ), looks nice. Now for the meat and taters. Needless to say ammo or brass is nowhere to be found. Since I am looking what is the better brass or does it matter? When factory ammo hits the shelves is there better, best and okay or again does it matter. The Hornady Lever stuff has impressive ballistics but how is it? When I had my first 336, 35 Rem I think all I had was Remington but I really don't remember, 1972 + -. Thanks Jerry

    Where I'm at, I'm using the Remington, haven't seen the Leverevolution stuff yet. I haven't found any brass yet, but Midway has Leverevolution bullets, and Hunters Supply 246gr and 300gr available.

    I have 4 35 Rems. that like the Lever bullets and powder. I also have or had 35 Rems. that shot Remington Core-locs the best. You'll have to buy or load up each and see what your gun likes the best.

    Right now, any brass that you can find is good enough. Good luck. Supplies have been hit and miss, regardless of brand.

    As for the H'dy LE ammo, it is accurate and hard hitting, but make sure to put those bullets where they need to go... The can act like miniature grenades if you put them in the wrong spot, and lost or bloodshot meat is the result. The H'dy LE ammo is the only factory ammo I have tried in my .35, so can't say about other factory loadings. FWIW, my 336 does very well with the Speer 180 gr JFP over a fair dose of H-335 - - extremely accurate and tough bullet.

    I use only the Hornady LE 200 gr. Ammo in my 336/35 Rem. I find it very accurate...But I haven't been able to find a willing target to demonstarte terminal ballistics yet. (100 Yards, 3 shots rested).

    We've gone on for considerable length about the LE bullets for the 35. They are no more "explosive" than many of the other available bullets and, depending upon which ones you are comparing it to, are less "explosive" than many. Including Hornady's own 200 RN when velocities are higher and the ranges are closer.

    We're also talking about 2200 fps velocities and not 270 speeds. This mitigates any real "explosiveness." You will find them well suited for the cartridge in terms of expected performance on any animal the cartridge is suited for.

    Cabela's has had "Remington" 35 Remington brass hanging on the rack for several weeks now, haven't looked for any loaded ammo.

    Try searching in the 336 forum for 35 rem. Lots of good info and reads there. When handloading there is a group that really likes the speer 220 gr. sp at 2200 fps. General concenses is the 150 gr. does not shoot well. if you find it it is usually cheap but is source of brass. That speer 180 is a great bullet. All these are hard to find. Lyman still makes 358315, a 205 gr. gc mold. It was made for 35 rem and loks like a copy of the jacket bullets. In case you did not know hornady as well as other manuals include 158 .357 bullet data for the 35 rem. Again cast .357 bullets abound. Should find bullets to shoot if you can get brass. Have fun and bangaway.
