    35/30 makes me smile

    i sent a winchester m94(1972) in 30/30 to JES and wouldn't ya know it, he did a 35/30!!!! JES did a dang fine job!!! three cheers for JES!!! i tried to clean my rifle's bore, but it was already clean!!!! three cheers for JES!!!!

    i did a williams fp sight because the targets weren't cooperating with me
    !!! nuthing to do with my eyes..........nope, it was the targets. i bought a ch4d 35/30 dies and 30/30 starline brass(250pcs). i bought 500 200gr fn gc (rcbs) from bull shop.

    i took the 30/30 cases and necked them up to .358". i used pure lanolin in my necking up. next was the HF wet tumbler with a 4" pvc. after i dried them, i put in a winchester lrp and i loaded up some 16.0 - 20.0gr of 2400/tuft of dacron under a 200gr fn gc. i fired them and 16.5gr - 17.0gr of 2400 had a soot on them, while 17.5 - 20.0gr did not. 20.0gr of 2400/dacon goes 1 3/4 - 2 1/4" at 100 yards(5 shots/benched). 3 shots goes roughly 3/4" at 100 yards but it will go 1/2" at 100 yards if the gods of shooting let me!!! the 35/30 didn't make a difference(target) on unfired or fired 30/30 starline brass.

    i chronoed the load and it is 1726fps avg for the 200gr fn gc and 20.0gr of 2400/dacron. i could take it up an extra grain or two but i am happy with the load. besides, the deer i shoot won't know the difference. in case you are wondering why? my ground blind/stand will only let me see about 50-60 yards. more than that i'll have do a pretty durned good shot thru branches and twigs and brambles to get the deer.

    i'm going to go with the 270ish gr fn gc and about 1500-1600fps when the 200gr run out. oh......by the way, the 35/30 with 200gr fn gc and 2400 "kicks" about as much as a 30/30 with 170gr factory loads, i'm saying that it doesn't "kick".

    Cool wildcat! I've been tempted by it and the 405 JES. Gotta say, that 165 RD looks mean though!

    Have you tried the 20.0 grain load without the dacron filler? Results any different, worse or better?

    i haven't done without dacron. in my 444 it takes 24.0gr of 2400 with dacron under a 300gr fn gc. i tried it(444) w/wo dacron and i found that is more accurate with dacron. with dacron is to do with the powder is right up against primer. without dacron, the powder is not.

    Never heard of the .35-30 before this. Sounds interesting. The first thing that popped into my head was...hmmm...could I use some of my .357 magnum bullets in it? I see you mentioned necking up to .358, but is that the actual bullet diameter? I'm a big fan of lever rifles and handguns in same caliber....I love the logistics of two guns/one ammo...and while I realize we're talking two different cartridges here, it does have potential for a reloader like me - as I can use the same bullets for two different cartridges and two different weapons.
