Question 35 Rem Leverlution in a Rem Model 14 pump?

Do you think the new 35 Rem Leverlution Ammo is too strong for the Rem Model 14 pump? Figure this gun goes back to last made in the 1930. I do reload and I do have the Remington brand Rem 35 ammo.

Quite simply, no. I shoot handloads in mine that equal or may even surpass pressures generated by LE ammo. As long as the rifle is in sound condition, you should have no problems. But, as always, if you have any reason to question the soundness of the action, get it checked by a gunsmith first.

Great rifle, enjoy.

That old remmy is probably stronger than most modern rifle's.

If you reload then I would get dies and not depend on factory.Too many stories of x number of duds in a box.I don't have the Rem 14 but here are groups and recipe that works in my 35 Marlin from 1952.

I have a 1952 35 Rem 336 and it shoots groups just like this with the Leverlution ammo. Something about the rate of twist being just right in the old Model 336. The used 336 1952 has taken more deer in this family than other guns..

Here's hoping your results are better then mine. I bought my m14 in the middle of the ammo shortage. The only ammo I could get my hands on was the LE. I had trouble keeping the rounds on a 12" target at 100yrds. I burnt up the ammo so I could use the brass to reload.

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

If you reload with the pointed bullet make sure the rounds are not too long to feed out of the tubular magazine. I know a guy who reloaded some for his handgun and seated them to the cannalure and they stuck out past the front of the cylinder and it couldn't turn!

Many people claim a deer shot with 35 Rem will run far. The 4 shot with with 35 leverlution ammo one ran 40 yards. A lung shot. Never killed any with Rem factory Ammo yet.

However the Leverlution 35 Rem is a 200 grain bullet... That more shock when it hits, Maybe?
