I've shot that bullet in my 336D, and it shoots well on paper. However it does no better then the Rem. 200gr core-Lokt roundnose bullets( you can buy these from Midway). As far as game is concerned I've not shot an animal with either bullet, so I can't answer that :?Taylor said:Has anyone tried a 35 caliber Sierra 200 grain bullet? Does it expand well from a 35 Marlin rifle? I am leaving on a hunting trip Friday and plan to use this bullet. Thanks, Taylor
My 336D with 4x Leupold and the 200 gr REM handload will keep 3 in 1.5" at 100. My 336SC with the RCBS 200gr cast and peep will put 3 at 50 in less then an inch35remington said:So, what do you guys call good accuracy with 200's in your rifle? My rifle will group into around 3 inches for five shots, 2 inches for three shots, which I call pretty acceptable for most stuff I shoot a .35 at. Winchester factory has done better on a few occasions.
I see reports from some guys that claim better, and I wonder if their Microgroove barrels differ slightly from mine.
I have found, though, that you almost have to work hard to find a powder that won't shoot the RCBS cast bullet accurately.
