There is/was a 35 caliber cartridge made up by necking up the 30-30 cartridge case. Don't recall if it had any special name for it. Someone here could give further help as that's as far as I can go. Frank

If you want a BP cartridge and/or want to shoot in the "Tradition" class, the 35/40 Maynard, of course.

But, if you want a modern wildcat, I'd go with the other Frank and use the 35-30/30. Much easier to find brass! 30/40 brass for the 35 Rem rimmed, is getting expensive and hard to find.

A couple of versions I believe out there, if you look at CH4D die choices.

This would be my "vote" no particular reason other than I just acquired a Pedersoli Rolling Block in this caliber. 

Hoping to shoot heavy for caliber cast in it, no time for load development right now though, elk season is on the horizon.

I have a friend who shoots the Maynard I believe, I'll see if I can get him to weigh in.

Pretty sure you can make the .35 Rimmed from cheap and plentiful .303 British brass.

35-30-30, No. .35 Rem rimmed or 35-40 Maynard. Only two choices.

35 Remington rimmed a modern wildcat? Don't think so. Not listed far as I know.

Joe.



I was referring to the 35/30-30 Joe. I understand now, not in the running. Sorry.

Are you shooting smokeless and what weight bullet?     My 35-40 with 1 1/2 swiss and 360 grain bullet is picky. The 10 twist bbl needed for the long bullet makes my gun torque a lot. Brass is from 38-55 ww. I have made a breech seater but not used it yet.

Just noticed that the neck on the right cartridge is not square.

Joe, don't know how it would be a 300 grainer but my friend does very well in BPCR with a 35-40 with 360 grainers and a fast twist. Heck, that ultra long bullet is halfway to the targets before you shoot.

.35 Remington rimmed or 35-40 Maynard? Breech seated, fixed or both.



               Joe.

If I had your money and time  Grin BOTH! a brace of guns - that way you wouldn't have to choose! The only choosing you'd have to do is which target/match for which gun.  How's that for help?  That's the answers I get when I ask my support group  Cheesy
Otherwise, the Maynard for simplicity and nostalgic reasons.

As good of a job as you did on the mystery Ballard, making switch barrels for it would be great idea!  Are you using one of Ron's barrels? in a left hand gain?  (may help with the mentioned torque) Smiley  I may need another project to start and I should have an action with an undecided caliber ready by the semester's end, let me know specifics.
Regards,
Greg

Are you forming from .303?   The .35 Rem has the same base diameter as .30-40 Krag.   I've thought hard about making one myself.  So I choose the .35R Remington.

When I first got into cast bullet shooting, it was using my Dad's Marlin 336 deer rifle. Looking back now there were many things I should have tried but didn't know about. But the .35 Rem case capacity still seems right for the 358315 mould I inherited with the rifle, when using 4198 and 4895. Hunting loads, of course, not Schuetzen.  That was 30 years ago, and before I became obsessed with single-shots.

30-30 would make a great cartridge case for the 35 rimmed. I seem to remember the name 35-30r Rose. Seasonal ability with the Winchester brass do not know about the Remington. For 303 British cases most American made for 303B have undersized case bodies where the body meets the solid case head area. Greek HXP and Monarch PPU made in Serbia do not show the case bulges so common to U.S. made brass and ammo. I've fired both if the above in my 1947 Fazakerly #4 MKII and no case bulges. Only one unscientific test though. So am thinking that there cases are made to spec and probably thicker brass.Frank

Obviously you'll also need a .35 throater if you're gonna use that bullet in the Rem case.  That'll be a key factor. The throat's gonna have to be tight, to keep the bullet lined up.
