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

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 had to choose, which one of the two?

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.

Ballards may be weaker,

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.

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.

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.
