180 gr Speer FN over 40 gr Varget. I’m gettin about a 1.5” group at 100 yds and about 2200 FPS.

PH - A buddy and I hunted with our Marlin 35's this year in Oklahoma. We are both fans of Barnes bullets, but Barnes does not currently make a 35 lever bullet - so he researched and found Maker Bullets, another copper bullet. The load that he settled on is (if I recall correctly) 200 grain Maker over 40 grains of LVR. Accuracy was very good and terminal performance is fantastic.
I have had outstanding results in my custom T/C carbine using 44.0 grains of Leverevolution under the Hornady 200 RN. Accuracy has averaged under 3/4 moa at 100 yards, with some groups at 1/2 moa. I never thought it would shoot that well! Back in November Midway got in some of the unobtainable 200 RN CoreLokts and I got a box, these will be my hunting bullets. They “only” shoot a tad over moa. Big deal, performance on game is more important than a useless level of accuracy.
Rollingblock..."Performance on game is more important than a useless level of accuracy"...??..I totally agree that bullet performance is paramount for hunting, but in my opinion, accuracy must go hand in hand with bullet performance, we owe it to the game we hunt. I need to know that ALL of my rifles are capable of shooting accurately, no matter what bullet I am using. ....PS:...nice shooting with that Leverevolution/Hornady load.

Remmy, I was referring to the difference between 0.75 moa and 1 moa. Either is completely adequate for any hunting the .35 is appropriate for....
