    I shoot the Saeco 352 @ 245 gr and it groups well. I am trying out a 200 gr Saeco 356 but it cast small so see what happens with powder coating.

    i use a 35/30-30 (sorta 35 rem little brother) and 200gr RCBS fn gc.
    I was in uniform for four years, and I know that heroism doesn't occur from taking orders, but rather from people who through their own willpower and strength are willing to sacrifice their lives for an idea.

    My Uncle Larry worked a lot of overtime as a diesel mechanic for a trucking company. He used his extra money to fund Canadian hunts during the 1960's for moose, bears, and deer. During these years he downed much game with his Marlin 35 with the long 24 inch barrel and 2-7X Redfield scope. No animals got away after a solid chest hit with 200 grain Core-lokt ammunition. He kindly shared much meat with our family. Amazingly, he gifted this rifle to me from his estate after he died several years ago. I've found it to be ideal for wild hogs and deer. - TR

    I have older 336 action and I like the idea of the 35-30 cartridge. Long neck and many bullet choices. Can you tell more of your experiences with this cartridge?

    Got #352 but not #356. Was thinking about trying to paper patch it in the 9.3x74R.
    About ready to crank back up on .35 Remington.
    In the fun box are the LBT 190 grain gas checked WFN, the 195 grain #358430, the Lee and the RCBS 200 grainers. Figuring that if one of 200 grainers work then maybe it will get hollow pointed.

    Also have a heavy spire point mold and a clone of the old #35809 but don't expect trying them in the lever action; they're for paper patching in the 9.3.

    The Lee 200 grainer is a little smaller diameter than I'd hoped, falling out at .358".

It shoots great in my Marlin 336 in 35 Remington BUT it did have one problem in that it jams into the rifling hard if you crimp in the groove as intended. My work around for that was to trim my cases .010 under the minimum length. The front band still kisses the rifling enough to leave marks but the lever closes all the way easily and you can extract a loaded round with no issues. Accurate now offers a variation on the design called the 36-200AS with the front band shortened by .020 for short throats. That should make it work perfectly with standard length cases.

    Since Accurate molds can be customized, I had mine made to drop .359 bullets using my alloy since my rifle slugged at .3575.

    The larger than normal meplate makes a loud thump that sounds more like a brick hitting a deer than a mere bullet and kills great. I load mine to 2,050 ft/sec using 50/50 Clip on WW and pure lead with 2% tin added with of course a gas check installed. It's an honest 1 moa load in a handy woods rifle that's easy to carry and fast to the shoulder. I can get about 100 shots before accuracy starts to deteriorate.

    I know youíve mentioned the jamming into the lands issue with the rcbs 200. Iíve experienced same issue when seated to crimp groove in my model 141. I just seated Draper and worked up slowly. Had decent results. I am trying the crimp groove again with my new marlin 35. I am wondering how all the other folks faired with this same bullet in their marlin?
