The 35-30-30 is a good case for a 35 caliber bullet for sure, but is virtually the same as the 35-40 Maynard. So the 35-30-30 is not going to happen.

Long ago I recall that 30-30s with bad bores were often reamed to 35/30s, so it would seem to have happened a lot in a different situation.

COTW (7th Edition, revised and expanded) states re the 35-30/30:
Quote:
Its original purpose was to salvage worn-out 32-40 and 32 Winchester Special barrels by reboring them to 35-caliber.

COTW also says:
Quote:
As a cast bullet cartridge, the 35-30/30 with its longer neck permits use of cast bullets as heavy as 270 grains seated to a depth that will feed through magazine rifles designed for the 30-30. This is not possible with the 35 Remington and its short neck.

Wonder why COTW points out 32 Special at all, when 30-30s were much more common and more likely to have pitted bores from early ammo with corrosive primers and a lifetime of just plain old neglect.

I thought that the reason behind the 32 Special was a slower twist barrel that after shooting with factory smokeless rounds could be reloaded with BP with less fouling problems.

If you take the time to look up the 32 Winchester Special in COTW, it tells you why that cartridge is called out for reboring to 35-30/30, but not the 30-30 itself.

Have encountered a few 30-30s rebored to 35-30 but never a 32 Special, so, must not have been a negating factor.

Where'd it come from? I know they just don't grow in the tool box or cabinet.  Mystery Ballard II?
