Ok, as far as I can tell 2000 joules = 1475 ft/lbs. So let's take a look.

I use 41.0 gr of AA 2520 with a 220 gr Speer FN at 2210 fps. That translates to:

Muzzle Energy: 2386 ft/lbs = 3845 joules

100 yard energy: 1856 ft/lb = 2516 joules

150 yard energy: 1629 ft/lb = 2208 joules

200 yard energy: 1426 ft/lb = 1933 joules

So you would be good with 41.0 gr of AA 2520 and the 220 gr. Speer.

Good response. Fast, too. ;)

Halwg, for your load of 41.0 gr of AA-2520 with 220 grain bullets, how close is that to your max for this particular bullet and powder combination?

Quite close. 42.0 was the max I got from Johan, but I was working toward 2200 fps and stopped at 41.0 because it got me there. No pressure signs at that point, but I didn't push it any further.

And on the joule vs ft/lbs. I think we all learned in HS that joules is the metric equivalent of ft pounds. I just got a conversion program and punched in the numbers. ;D

The joule (pronounced /ˈdʒuːl/ or /ˈdʒaʊl/); symbol J) is a derived unit of energy or work in the International System of Units. It is equal to the energy expended (or work done) in applying a force of one newton through a distance of one metre (1 newton metre or N·m), or in passing an electric current of one ampere through a resistance of one ohm for one second. It is named after the English physicist James Prescott Joule

BTW, this is a pretty stout load, with decent recoil in a 20" carbine. I developed this specifically for hunting black bears in PA, which, unfortunately, I didn't get to do this past season. I shot a medium sized doe in 2009 with that load and it did a very good job. But so do any of my other 35 Remington loads.

Hal,
I never learned about joules in high school, or if they taught it I was busy with the young ladies!LOL Seriously, it is
very comforting knowing we have educated guys on MO like you, Swaney, Preacher and 35reminton to name just a few. It's comforting to know you guys are there to keep dumb dutchman like me out of harms way. Thank you!!!!!

Hey Hal do you think this load "41.0 gr of AA-2520 with 220 grain bullets" will work good In my new unfired 336XLR-35R.? I have all I need but the Speer 220 gr. bullets. Is this load a home recipe of Johan or is it in print? 42.0 gr. or 41.0 gr. of AA2520 seems kinda high.
TO NY

Schneck66,
How do you get your bullets in Germany? Do you buy them locally or do you have them mailed from the USA. I have never checked the Post Office to see if they will mail reloading components to Germany. I do a lot of eBay transactions to Germany and mail things there all the time. I know First Class International has a 4 pound limit. I am not sure how much 2 boxes of Speer 220 grain FN weigh, but I would be willing to check it out. I'm not sure if the cost of postage makes it to expensive. If you would like my help let me know.

Ok, I have to go back to my conversion program to convert ft/lbs to joules.

My load with the 200 gr Hornady RN is also 41.0 gr and it gets me 2235 fps. So plugging these numbers into the ballistic program I get the following:

Muzzle Energy: 2218 ft/lbs = 3007 joules

50 yard Energy: 1837 ft/lbs = 2490 joules

75 yard Energy: 1667 ft/lbs = 2260 joules

100 yard Energy: 1510 ft/lb = 2047 joules

110 yard Energy: 1451 ft lb = 1967 joules

You are just shy of your 2000 joules at 100 meters using the 200 gr RN. You are good to about 95 meters.

If you have Federal, Hornady, Remington or Winchester 200gr factory ammo available in Germany, any of those offerings are more than enough for a hog.

Yes, I guess my question is why you need 2000 joules of energy? Is that a hunting regulation in your area? I know there was always a rule of thumb here that you need 1000 ft/lbs of energy (1355 joules) to cleanly kill a deer. That has been disproven.

The 35 Remington with it's fairly large bullet has been a proven killer of most any game, and would surely kill a hog at 100 meters in standard 200 gr ammo. It does sound like you may have some type of regulation requiring 2000 joules. Is that the case?

Here in Germany a gun must bring 2000j at 100 m and a min cal. of .264 (6.5mm) wehn you want shoot larger Amimals like Hogs, Red stag or Dammwild .For Roedeer is 5.6mm (224 dia) and 1000j at 100 m its law here, a believe that a good load of a 30-30, and also a .35Rem will bang a hog, but is is not allowed by Law...Thanks a lot for your load datas, i will play next time with my "New" .35 Rem first i must do a trigger work,then put a Bushnell elite 3200 3-9x40 on it,then i start with 39,0 AA2520,200 Horn. will work up to 41,0 When i can get 220 Speer, i will try it also : Roedeer season is starting at 1 May, so i have a lot of Time..
