.35 Remington Load testing

Got out today and finally got a chance to test out some loads for my Marlin 336. Shooting was done at 50yds off of a rest in 5 shot groups. These were without a doubt the best 2 groups of the day.

This load is a 200gr Remington Core-lokt bullet over 35.5gr of IMR 4320.


This one is a Sierra Pro Hunter 200gr RN over 34.0gr of H335


I like the results with the H335 but it throws a pretty good fireball out the end of the barrel, this does not happen with the IMR 4320. I may have to try the 4320 with the Sierra bullets and see how that goes. I certainly can't complain about these groups since they were fired with iron sights.

My standard load for the 35 Rem is 35gr of 3031 behind a Sierra 200gr round nose. I have tried the other powders and had my best results with 3031.
Cycles great in the old Model 8s and groups well in Model 14s.

I've had great luck with 4064 with loads from 37.0 to 39.0 gr and Remington's 200 gr Core Lokt RN. Three shot gps at 100 yds run under two inches with a 2.5x scope on my Marlin 336. This load at 38.0 gr chrono's at 1932 fps avg. for 5 shots.These same loads work as well or better with Hornady's FTX 200 gr Rubber Tip.

For varmint type loads, I like Remington's 125 and 140 JHP's with SR4759. 18.0 grains will give you a chrono'd 1800 fps and 50 yd gps. of an inch or less. Expansion at that velocity is spectacular....but a varmint only load for sure.
