We need details.... ( Inquiring loonies want to know).

There is one bullet and one load for the traditional 25-35, 117 grain round nose. The original fast twist rifle of 1895. Shot was just over 100 yards, nothing but net…

Good shooting Shrap , that will be tasty.

Have a box of Winchester .25-35 ammo looking for a home if anyone is near the Ocala/Tampa part of the world.

Maybe because it was less powerful than the 30-30 and it was chambered in the same rifles that cost the same amount of money?

I have a few rifles chambered in 25-35, mostly Savage 1899s, a couple of Winchester 64s, and a 94 made in 1949. When I was a kid, I used a Savage 1899 ASR in 25-35 to shoot 'chucks. I loaded 75 grain Sierras over IMR 3031 in an effort to maximize its velocity potential and had some success before my Father decided that I needed a better 'chuck gun and gave me a Remington 660 in 222. I still have the Savage and probably some of those 55 year old handloads are squirreled away somewhere.

That said, the 25-35 was a lot more popular than either of its direct competitors, the 25-36 MAR and 25 REM. Marlin 1893s chambered in 25-36 are very seldom seen and Remington 8s, 14s, and 30s aren't much more common. The Steven 425(?) and Standard pumps and semi-autos being even more uncommon.

Those old 117 grain round nose bullets are deadly out of a 250-3000 also. Nicely done, thanks for sharing

Shrapnell. I once found a 25-35 case along a river bank in N.W. Wisconsin about 30 yrs ago . It is split apart but I can read it. I found it where the river is shallow and the deer cross there .I imagine they were doing a deer drive 100 yrs ago or so.
All these years I have wondered,, did they get the deer?
