Many Many years ago I use to reload for the 35 Rem using either Remington or Hornady 200gr bullets. I sold the rifle due to financial issues, but I just bought another one from a guy who no longer hunts. If my memory serves me correctly I used 37grs of IMR3031 powder and got decent accuracy with a velocity around 2100fps. I would like to know what you guys favorite loads are today.

Thanks Ed

I've used 200 gr. Sierra's with Win 748 , Varget, Leverevolution and probaly a couple other powders and they all worked. Lately I'm using 200 gr RCBS pattern cast in front of varget and been happy with that. I use the 35 remington as a woods and thicket gun with a Williams peep sight. Shots are 100 yds. and less.

39.4 gr. IMR4064/200 gr. Hornady RN.


If you need Buffalo Bore you are using the wrong cartridge.

My Marlins favorite load was 41.5 grains of H4198 with a 180 gr Speer FN bullet. It would shoot cloverleaf groups

LVR is tough to beat for these.
I have extra Speer 180 and 220 JFP bullets if you get stuck for bullets...

I just ran off 500 rds of 180 gr over 36.5 and 38.0 grs of 3031. I loaded the first 200 in Hornady cases at 38 grs and last 300 batch at 36.5... Why?? The brass I got from Grafs didn't have the same case capacity as the Hornady, it holds 3.5 grains less and was the difference between a compressed load and the std load I use. I also found a couple that didn't have a flash hole. No biggy,,, that's why we pay attention.

Both loads shoot to POA and velocity is very close to the same in the Remington M81. So, be aware the Graf head stamp brass is a bit less in case capacity. Its a real kick to run off 15 rounds rapid fire with the POE magazine.

I started out loading H-4895 using the Remngton 200 gr Core-lokt in a older Marlin 336 with ballard rifling. My rifle would not shoot the Remington 200 gr core-lokt with H-4895 much preferring IMR-3031 with the Sierra 200 gr bullet.

As mentioned in this thread Hodgdon Leverlution (LVR) powder is an excellent choice for speed and low pressure using the Hornady 200 gr FTX bullet.

I use Reloader 7
30.2gr with Hornady 200gr leverevolution and or 180 gr speer FP
As soon as I shoot up those I will switch to speer 220gr fp for giggles. I've killed a few deer with the 35 rem. It's a brutal hit on
a southern whitetail at a hundred yards. I've used other powders as well, but Reloader 7 is my new favorite. It meters well the MV is good. Deer hit the ground.

Most of my 35 shooting is a paste board boxes, and political signs these days, but I still love the round.
