The Rem Model 35 Rem Pump and use of Leverlution ammo?

Do you think it would be ok to shoot the new 35 Rem Leverlution Ammo in a 1930's Rem Model 14 pump? Should I just stick to the Remington 35 ammo? I have yet to shoot it. I was thinking I might like to take it on a deer hunt...

I tried them out of the older lever 35 and if you cycle the rounds slowly they would jam like crazy. If you cycle fast no issues. This happened in 3 different rifles one from the 60s 80s and 90s. Not sure if the pump would be aNY different, only thing you can do is try. If at home could unjam pretty easy, we didn't find it out until we were in the field and it wasn't fun trying to unjam bullets with cold fingers and no tools

I've used them out of my mod 14. They group for garbage. I bought 4 boxes when ammo was non-existent. I burnt through them just to get the brass to reload, load 5 rounds and unload from the hip(yeah, I know I need a bullet puller). My handloads and factory loads will group 1-2" at 100yrds, if I do my part. The Leverevolution is in the neighborhood of 6" plus. Still minute of deer, but I feel better with the good stuff.

Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.
Good... Bad... I'm the guy with the gun.

I do have a Marlin Model 336 and woo the Leverlution shoot under 1 inch at 100 yards... The Marlin is like from the 1950's yet.,, That deer has taken quite a bit deer in this household..

Like Jerbo said, why not? The SAAMI specs haven't changed over the years so the proof on the older model 14s should suffice. You will have to experiment to see how your gun likes them as others here have done. My 7600 with XS sight peep loves'em. But as the saying goes, your results may differ.
