    Reloading the 35 Rem

    Hi guys, my neighbor is into reloading and we have 100 cases cleaned, prepped and primed ready to go.
    I was just checking to see how many have a favorite load and what is it for 200gr RN bullets.
    Thanks, T

    Update: gun is my Marlin 336

    With a FN or RN cast I use 24.0 IMR 4198.
    Been so long since I loaded any Jacketed.

    With the 200 gr RN---around 2100 FPS in a 20 inch Marlin carbine. Now with my Rem Mod 760, 44.5 grs of LVR will get me ~2375 FPS with a 200 gr Hornady SP. That load is moving pretty good but the rifle is built to handle it since it uses the same stout short action as the 308 Win version.

    With the 200 grain Hornady RN over 40.0 grains of LVR my 20" 336 chronogaphed at 2038. I was disappointed to see the 200 grain FTX over the same 40.0 grains only chronogaphed at 1988, but the FTX shoots very well and retains it's velocity much better than the RN so I will stay with the FTX.

    My testing showed the FTX expanded very well out to 150 yards as did the RN. I tested the FTX at 200 yards but the result were inconclusive, I did not test the RN at 200. I found hits very easy to make at 200 yards with the FTX, I just had a hard time recovering the bullets with the setup I had. I will repeat the effort at another time. I've never shot a deer beyond 140 yards
    in 47 years of hunting
    here in the northwoods so I should be good with the FTX or the RN. I will use the FTX because I have a bunch of them I bought on sale, a lot.

    Hodgdon LVR powder is a very good choice in the .35 Remington giving good velocity and excellent accuracy. YMMV

    I use 41.5 grains of LVR in my 18.5” Contender. It is a sub-moa load in my SSK barrel with 200 RN Hornadys (not the best overall hunting bullet). Right around moa with the 200 RN Remingtons. Haven’t chrono’d it but the Remingtons killed Texas whitetails quite well.

    My regular load is a Hornady 200Gr. Roundnose with 42.6 Grains of leveroution powder, did a number on this little buck from Texas. 158 yards and my only deer past 100 yards in my life.
