So far I have not been real impressed with the accuracy of the 336D 35 Rem. I have not getten real serouis about it until now. So far about the best I have been able to get is 3-3.5 inches at 100 yards. The worst about 8-10 inches at 100 yards. Have shot the 180 grain Speers and the 200 grain Hornadys. Spent last night sifting through reloading manuals and plan to try a bunch of different powders to get it shoot.

Does any one have a 336D that they have a good shooting load for?

big medicine,

I am going to be trying some 200 gr. Rem corelokts in my 336D this weekend,hopefully.I'll keep you posted on how they work out.I'm going to be using H4895 powder,it's been real accurate in my 307 & 45-70,so I hope it is in the 35 also.

Hey guys,
Thanks for the help. I will be trying the Rem 200 gr bullets this time. I have 500 of them. It didnt take any thing to work up loads for my 336CS 35 Rem. Almost everything I shot out of it shot good. This 336D is a different story. I'm kinda glad the Speers didnt shoot that great I saw the price on them and about had cornary. I hope to get a bunch more loads ready tomorrow after work and maby get some testing done this weekend.

Big Meds: here is my load..the usual disclaimer about start low and work up, etc. 180 Gr Speer Fn 40.0 gr IMR3031.
I shot a 378# dressed Blk bear in Pa with it out of my 336D last fall, 1 shot @ 45 yds while he was running towards me on a drive. I hit him in the base of the neck and the lead was found in the right ham just under the skin.
also shot a 120# doe thru both shoulders with a passthru @ about 90 yds
Makes one wonder why all these "new" calibers are so big! when the 35 Rem has been kicking it for so many years. :lol:

Wak,
Sounds like it shoots the theroy that the 35 Rem doesnt have any power all to hell! :wink: I have got to get some 3031 and give it a try. Wouldnt ya know it was one of the few listed powders that I didnt have :cry: I'm starting from scratch with the 336D I'm going to try the following powders IMR 4064, RL-7 again, H4198, H335 again, AA2015BR again, AA2520 again, H380. But I will try some IMR3031. It just goes to show the difference in rifles. My 336CS shot just about every thing, this 336D is not quiet as easy :cry: I want to shoot a deer with it this fall!
