What is the difference between the 35-30/30 and the 35 Maine Guide ?
I have seen reference to both of these rounds and know that they are formed from 30-30 brass, but I don't know the difference between the 2.

Best I could find, and you may have too, is this reference to Ken Waters having made a 35 out of a 32-40 rather than from a 30-30. I don't know the similarities, if any, of the 30-30 and 32-40 to know if there is a significant difference in the 35/30-30 and the 350 Maine Guide.

Good luck finding more information. You may have to buy an old issue of a magazine to find out what is what.

Plain base cast bullets in a 30/30

its my understanding that - today - they are considered one and the same...a 30-30 bored out to 35 cal....back in the old days there were other calibers bored out to 35 but the 30-30 being, by far, the most common took over the designation...hope someone that actually knows the answer chimes in...
