I went out to shoot some targets for the Ranch Dog Postal Match today and figured I run the Leverevolution ammo over the chronograph. This data is out of my 336D (guide gun) and it is not bad at all.

2163, 2149, 2194, 2175, 2185, For an average MV of 2173 FPS. Extreme spread of 44.8 FPS, and a standard deviation 17.7

The Leverevolution was about 6-8 inches higher at 100 yards than was my 200 gr RN load. This stuff sem like the real deal, I was impressed with the 30-30 load and how it performed on deer. the 35 Rem is looking just as good.

Big Med,

I assume that's the 200 gr Hornady slug? That's moving right along for traveling down that short, ported barrel of the 336D. I didn't know you had a "D". When did you get it?

Sidespin,
I have had the D for a couple years now and really like it. The Hornady Leverevolution is also a 200 gr bullet. It shoots real good and looks like it will put the etie on game. I was impressed with the velocity of 2173 out of that 18.5 inch barrel.

I have noticed that for some reason a short barrel doesn't affect the .35 Rem. that much. I have a Rem 7600 pump with 22" barrel and the 336ss with 18 1/2" barrel and a friend has a Thompson Condender with a 14".
All are within 200 ft. per sec. of each other.
Has anyone else seen this?

Yep, I've seen results like that on different barrel lengths. The .35 produces results like that due to the fact that the powder capacity of the case isn't that large and pressures are relatively low.

The LeverEvolution produced around 2110 fps in my 20" barrel 336's (3 tested).

The LeverEvolution velocities make handloads that gets 2200 fps with a 200 grain roundnose bullet seem pretty mild pressurewise, and they are. I've had factory .35 Remington loads get 2200 fps with 200 grain bullets in a 20 inch barrel, and others have reported the same. The bullet in the LeverEvolution is a pretty neat trick; the velocities obtained are somewhat less noteworthy, but still a bit better than the average I've seen for the 200 RN factory loads.

That fair agreement with Guns & Ammo's article quoting measurments averaging 2166 ft/s. Good to know.
