Though the cartridge has great merit, it has never attained tremendous popularity.

For anyone who is interested, here is what the good folks at Ramshot powder sent me on. Bullet weight: grains. Start load: If at all possible, measure the velocity and correlate with our data.

Despite these qualities, the. One might argue that a good medium bore, by definition, will be a pragmatic balance of compromises, and that it hardly offers much in the way of Madison Avenue flash and record-setting sales numbers. Undoubtedly, the presence of other fine medium bores like the. When working with a. That left only 0. This led to laments that the reduced case capacity and increased bullet jump resulted in velocity limitations and larger group sizes. Even so, reports indicate that velocities in excess of 2, fps with grain bullets and 2, fps with grain bullets are to be expected from these stubby carbines.
All Ruger rifles chambered in. At this length, practically all the test loads failed to fill the available powder space, so take the complaints of deep seating and limited capacity with a grain of salt in rifles other than the series.
One thing noticed while handling this short, fat round is that it is not necessarily the overall length perpendicular from bullet tip to case head that determines easy fit in a magazine box but the length along the diagonal from the bullet tip to the edge of the cartridge rim.
A round that just fits when fed parallel to the magazine might bind fore and aft in the magazine when tipped. The other area of complaint commonly heard regarding. Although nobody seems to mention it, it is common to all short, fat rounds, especially with controlled-round feed actions like the Ruger. In a CRF action, the case rim must also slip under the extractor during the feed cycle in addition to being released from the feed rails and captured by the chamber.
Other than fastidious design and execution of magazine boxes, feed rails and extractors, there is little that can be done to change the fact that fat rounds stack farther out of alignment with the chamber and that shorter cases turn tighter corners in traveling up the feed ramp from the magazine to the chamber. One possible solution to a rough feeding.
A single-feed magazine box utilizing Ruger Scout rifle components might be a slick way to address feeding problems with the. Once you work past the issues of limited case capacity and magazine length and have a rifle that feeds well, the. Bullets of. The rifle used here has this tighter twist and showed no problems whatsoever in digesting the long Woodleigh grain Protected Points and Swift grain A-Frames.
In the test rifle, the four random loads tried with grain semiwadcutter gas check SWC GC bullets printed into 1. Be aware, though, that some flat-point bullets will only exacerbate feeding issues, especially when trying out short pistol bullets for plinking loads.
Excellent velocities were easy to obtain with readily available powders. Whatever the reason, the two spherical powders tried, BL-C 2 and H, produced a prodigious muzzle flash and blast. Magnum primers did not help. In addition to excessive muzzle blast, loads with these powders failed to fill the case, so they are not recommended.

RCBS makes a nice gr flat nose. Just wanted to see if anyone here has done any cast bullet load development with this round.
He sings the praises of the. My rifle is a short action so I am thinking a custom mold of around grains. Check out the closed group buy mould thor mould and see if HM2 has any available. I have the RM in the old M action and have great appreciation for the cartridge and the rifle. It is a wonderful cartridge with all one needs to harvest practically anything in North Amerika. I have used the standard cast boolit powders Red Dot, Unique, and have found Re-Loder 7 to be quite good. Magazine length and throat are the limiting factors for boolit construction.
Edd Badgley Fine Gentleman sent me some of his modified s which were an exceptionally accurate bore riding nose boolit with a wide meplat for devastating hunting performance. I was not too interested in great speed - foot seconds is "way" fast for this combination and all that I would ever need. I wanted more weight than speed.350 Remington Magnum
If the group buy mentioned above by rockrat is similar to Edd's design it would be a good investment. If you need more info pm me.
Shoots great, it also shoots the same in the 35 rem and my win. My buddy also tried it in his 35 rem last fall.
It shoots real good for him as well. All four of the rifles that we shot it in gave the same results, 1" to 1. He didn't mention leading but said the groups were 1.The contents of the Alaska Outdoors Supersite forums are viewable by anyone, and may be read by clicking the forum headings below.

I practiced, but that would concuss me, making load development impossible. After 30 years, most of which was spent as a safe queen, it got sold. Thus ended my big bore era, I moved down in calibers. My collection became small bores, a being my largest rifle. I again became comfortable with the Winchester. Why do I now own and shoot a Remington Magnum? It is not a big bore, but being over 8mm it is well into the larger medium bore category.
I was not shopping for a RM, but life has a way of making stuff happen. A very good friend no longer hunts big game and he wanted me to buy his rifle. The rifle is a Remington Classic, and being in makes it a My friend had bought the rifle new, put a 2 — 7 Leupold on it and had fired a total of 2 boxes of factory through it. The package came with a set of RCBS dies, also of production, the scope in Redfield rings, a box of gr. Sierra RN bullets and the 2 boxes of once fired brass.
I remember when my friend bought the RM and I helped him sight it in. I remember it being accurate, but what I really remember is how much recoil it had. And so the project began. Unfortunately, sometimes the project consumes me. I replaced the Leupold scope with a Bushnell 1. The Bushnell worked excellent for about 20 rounds; it then became an out of focus example of bad parallax.
After a short time Bushnell sent back my scope, having replaced the erector assembly, on warranty, no charge. I removed the scope and mounts. I added a Williams receiver sight, removed the factory rear sight and replaced the factory front sight with a Williams streamlined ramp and a. While I was at the front of the gun, out came the Manson military re-crown kit and the muzzle now sports a fine 11 degree crown.

I may relocate the front swivel, a barrel band swivel mount would probably be better. I have since replaced the recoil pad with a Limbsaver pre-fitted pad, and am pleased with it, the poke that I used to get from the edge of the dried out Remington pad is no more.
Shortly after the factory stops chambering rifles in a caliber, factory ammunition becomes an issue and obsolescence soon follows. I can live with that. What is an average weight bullet for 35 caliber?
