I shot one sizeable (for around here) buck several years ago with the 150gr. It expanded violently and was under the hide on the off side. I'm satisfied that the 200gr is better suited for deer, but the 150 works if you don't push it beyond the limit.

SCGN,
Any idea how fast you were pushing that 150gr PSP? If I recall correctly that bullet was designed for the 350 Rem Mag. While I see no need for that bullet in anything faster than the 35 Rem, I have loaded it into my 357 Maximum and got good mushrooms pushing it to 2300 fps. All I've shot with it was wet packed newspaper with 1/2 OSB plywood layers at 3", 6", and 9". The bullet went through the 3" piece but stopped shy of the 6".

Thanks, Dinny

Rem 760 made in 1979 is my 35. Have used Rem 200gr Cl, Speer 180gr FP and Hornady 200gr FTX. Will be using the Speer load this year as I have several loaded. Personally, I think the Hornady 200gr FTX gives the old 35 an edge for little more distance out to 200yds and expands well on deer. Using LVR 45.0grs with the Speer for about 2300fps out of the 22in barrel. Good woods gun. Dan.


It doesn't matter how fast you miss.

The factory load is listed at 2300 fps. The 7600 has an 18 1/2" barrel, so would guess it to be less but haven't shot them over a chronograph.

When I was working on that build and doing research I read that although the .35 Rem has a smaller rim it usually works fine with a normal .473 bolt. I think I even read that Remington uses the same bolt head for both. My Savage, originally a .308 Win, was hit and miss extracting .35 Rem brass so I sourced a custom head which is easy to switch on a Savage bolt. You might be OK with your Rem 700.

I think extractor can be important if it will function right or not. IIRC the M16 or sako type did the best at grabbing and holding the slight smaller head.

That's been my experience. My custom Win M70 in 35 Rem has a push feed bolt and a M16 extractor was installed to assist with extraction. It works perfectly with the .473 bolt face.

I have hunted with the 35 Remington since I bought my first one in 1987 a Marlin 336. I have owned several dozen since, but finally found my Holy Grail 35 this year, a Marlin Marauder. I topped it with a Leupold 2-7x28 Compact. It shoots moa with the Hornady Leverevolution ammo. I can't wait to take it to the woods here in a few days when our rifle season opens. I have had good luck with the Hornady ammo out of my other 35s. It never fails to expand and always leaves a good blood trail. I have had some of the Remington and Hornady round nose bullets pencil through without expanding over the years. Still recovered the deer as even a non expanding 35 cal bullet leaves a blood trail, but prefer the pointed Hornady or 180 grain Speer bullets these days.

SC: that 700SA would work fine on .358W though....

35 rem with a 200 grain round nose was made for the laurel thickets of central PA. Wonderful cartridge!! Escpecially in a rem 760 or 7600. Says PA through and through

Just loaded up 3 different cast bullets on top of AA2520. Tested three combinations. All are good to hunt with.

And with the right powders you can soft pedal the 358 a bit for a more 35 Rem like shooting experience.

You don't see a lot up here in New Brunswick. A few now and then, but most of the old guns were 94s in 32 Spec or 30-30. I think there were more across the border in Maine.

I have all the loading kit for a 35Remington and none for the 358. Components are so scarce in Canada now that one is very limited when going into a new chambering.

Casting for a 35 Remington works out well as the cartridge works perfectly with properly cast and powdercoated bullets, as well as with jacketed bullets which are hard to fine here other than the Hornady rubber tips.

Bases should be here for my 336 today. It's a 2 piece set up so not real sure it will allow for proper scope placement.

Hopefully I can get it tuned in for our antlerless season in a few weeks.

200 grain Core-Lokt on top some Varget. It should work.

My initial chronograph shooting last winter was a 336 A longer barrel model got velocities very similar to my 356 carbines.

Will test more this winter.
