Gun Descriptions

Over the years, the .35 Remington has been chambered in a variety of rifles by most firearms manufacturers, and continues in popularity today in the Marlin Model 336 lever-action and Henry Side Gate Lever Action. It is also a popular cartridge for single-shot hunting pistols like the Thompson/Center Contender and the Remington XP-100. For hunters looking for a medium-power rifle with moderate recoil, for short to medium ranges, the .35 Remington is popular alongside the .30-30 Winchester. It has a small but loyal following in the northeast and areas of the southern United States. The cartridge uses a medium to heavy bullet and has moderate recoil based on a moderate pressure level of 33,500 CUP as set by SAAMI. The normal factory load consists of a 200 grain round-nosed bullet with a muzzle velocity of 2080 feet per second. This 200 grain bullet is nearly 18% heavier than the .30-30's 170 grain bullet, and has a 16% larger frontal area. This gives it a substantial increase in power over the .30-30, especially when used on larger game species. Remington helped promote the advantage in power that the .35 Remington had over the .30-30 through a series of advertising campaigns in the early 1900s. One of their advertisements even publicized the ability of the .35 Remington to penetrate a 5/16″ steel plate, which the .30-30 Winchester could not do. The .35 Remington is considered a fine round for deer, elk, black bear, and other medium and large game as long as ranges are reasonable. Hornady currently produces a .35 Remington load in their LEVERevolution line that features a rubber-tipped spitzer bullet which is safe to use in lever action or pump guns with tubular magazines.

Also known as 357 Smith & Wesson Magnum, 357 Magnum is a smokeless powder cartridge with a 9.07mm bullet diameter. Smith & Wesson and Winchester introduced it in 1934 as a successor of 38 Special Ammo. This handgun cartridge is an ideal example of extremely effective terminal ballistics. 357 Magnum Ammo Specifications: Cartridge case: .38 Special Case type: Straight Rimmed (R), Bullet diameter: 9.07 mm (.357 inch) Neck diameter: 9.6 mm (379 inch) Base diameter: 9.6 mm (379 inch) Rim diameter: 11.2 mm (.440 inch) Rim thickness: 1.5 mm (.060 inch) Case length: 33 mm (1.29 inch) Overall length: 40mm (1.59 in) Case capacity: 26.2 gr H2O (1.70 cm3) Primer type: small pistol magnum Maximum pressure: 35,000 psi (240 MPa) Maximum CUP: 45,000 CUP 357 Magnum ammo is available in weights ranging from 110 to 200 grains. The case of the cartridge is 1.155 inches long that allows more space for the propellant to hold three grains of powder. Due to the higher powder charge, this cartridge can fire a 125-grain bullet at a velocity of about 1450 feet per second which is more powerful than its competitors. It is an ideal choice for plinking, self-defense, target shooting, and hunting. This handgun cartridge delivers excellent stopping power without creating much recoil to support the easy handling of a handgun. The excellent ballistic performance makes it an ideal choice for shooting practice and serious competitions. It is manufactured by several brands including Federal Ammunition, Federal American Eagle Cartridge, Fiocchi Cartridges, Hornady, Winchester, CCI Blazer Rounds, and Remington.
