35/30 win, who has one?

i have a winchester m94(made in 1972) in 35/30. it used to be 30-30 but JES Reboring took care of that. i have a 200gr rcbs fn gc and 12ish lbs of 2400 and 3ish lbs of rel7 that i can shoot. i think that the 2400(with/without dacron) will be best at the velocity i choose(1700fps). i can take it up to 2000+fps(rel7) but the deer don't know the difference,but my shoulder will!!! i shot a buck and two does with my 444 marlin and 300gr fn gc with 24.0gr of 2400/dacron and it was going 1624fps.

the 35/30 is about the first wildcat cartridge. it will be slightly behind(velocity) the 35 remington. i'm told that 30-30 and 32 win spl that were "shot out", were rebored to 35/30 win(.358" ). mine is rebored to .359".

my m94 in 30-30 has killed many deer. but 20-25 years ago, i gave the m94 a retirement(safe queen). it was the first buck and first doe i killed. it was first reloaded round too. but i was basically bored of the 30-30, so i gave her my retirement. then all of the sudden, i was interested in wildcat/obsolete cartridges, like the 30-40 krag and the 9.3x57 and 20 vartarg and.... well i gots this 30-30 and JES can do a wildcat, so........i sent to him and in 3 weeks(1 week to get her, 1 week to rebore, 1 week to get her back) i got a 35/30 win. i have a couple hundred of 30-30 brass, but since this is a "new" cartridge, i ordered 250 pcs of starline 30-30 brass. i also got a 35/30 reloading dies that is CH4D. i have done a 100 pcs of brass and all that is left is to load them up. i am going to try 16.0 thru 20.0gr of 2400/dacron to see if it is safe(it should be, i've read that 23.0gr of 2400 is safe, but i don't believe it until i try it). i am going off of lyman's #49 reloading book in 35 remington.

well anyway, who has a 35/30?

I've long thought of doing a 35/30. It's a cartridge I wish Winchester would've offered in the model 94. Did you do 3 or 5 groove rifling? JES did 3 groove for me on a 35 Whelen and I was pretty pleased with it.

I have several 37/30's (.375 Win)………...but no 35/30. That's actually one I've not heard of.

If you want to work up mild loads and not screw with dacron, try some AA-5744. As long as the bullet gets out the end of the barrel, there's no issue with under-charging.

I think Winchester lost a lot of sales to Marlin by not offering a 35 caliber in the model 94 during the 50's and 60's. By the time they introduced the 356 Win the day of the lever action was passed and it flopped. They should've standardized the 35/30 before Marlin ever offered the 35 Rem.

i chose the 35/30 for the long neck. i can use 200-280gr boolits, while the 35 rem tops out at 220+gr boolits because of its short neck.

I've heard the main problem with the cartridge is that most of the suitable jacketed bullets are cannelured for the short neck 35 Rem and you can't take advantage of the long neck. Cast bullets of course fixes that.

yesterday i fired the 200gr fn gc and 16.0 - 20.0gr of 2400/dacron in my 35/30. it werked fine but i forgot the chrony!!!!! i should've put up a target(i fired at a 3"x3"x1" piece of steel painted fluorescent orange ) but i was more interested in the loads and my face (rofl) !!! the 16.0, 16.5, and the 17.0 of 2400 had soot on their cases, while the 17.5 thru 20.0gr did not. (the cases are 30-30 starline necked up to 35/30.) i also think that i can go up 2 - 3gr of 2400, but stupid :P "forgot" his chrony and now i don't know if the loads achieves 1700-1800fps. dang stupid, i should fire him. (rofl)

shooting wise, i have a hard time on open sights, esp at 100 yards. a williams peep sight is my next move. but anyway i'll say that i did 50-60% on the orange painted steel. the rifle wasn't on a rest, it was on a tripod. and i was using my ol' kentucky windage!!! i had to raise the rifle up to put her on the target, she was 5 or 6" low and she was on the left/right. i was shooting her in a sleeveless t shirt and i could feel no recoil, or at least just a little itty bit of recoil. i shoot 5 shot strings and i couldn't feel the barrel heating up. 5 minutes after the string, i would shoot again. i should have stupid (rofl) check for powder residue in the barrel after each string, but i checked it afterwards, she was clean.


i should've rebored her years ago, i've forgotten how much fun the m94 is.
