I go .005" under, not .050"
Pops also has a battery power deal attached to his trimmer.

Of course I have 100 new cases to trim, maybe. Single shot, have 60 cases already trimmed, I'm waiting to see if the law changes before I do my other 100.

And if they don't I could always punish my kid by making her trim some down manually

I have only popped one deer with my .35..................125# or so doe, 50 yards.
The 200 gr did not exit, dinked the offside rib and biggest chunk I found weighed 50 grains.
There was a 2" diamater rip through her liver, just a black granulated auger type wound.
The lung that took the smack was shredded (she ran 30 yards and piled up).
Onside shoulder was broken at the fwd top edge.

I hope out a ways it slows down and stays together, makes an exit. Slap a big buck... I'd like to have a BT that's easy to see and short.

They damn well better not change the law! Anywho, i am cutting it that far back to account for neck stretch in the case some of the kings men decide to harass me in the field.

I've never needed a BT on deer that the bullet didn't exit, but like you I hit those deer with a big piece a lead.

It was designed specifically by Remington for this cartridge when it was first introduced in 1908. Scoping depends on your eyesight. See my report in the Range Report section of the Forum, jd45

My eyes are good but my distance judgement beyond 100yds fails me sometimes. I am thinking of using one of those see thru scope mounts. And a 3x scope. Where I hunt the longest shot might be 175 yds. And that's being generous. Though I've never seen anything worth taking in that particular spot. This way I still have the irons and if need be a fairly good red field scope.

angryhart, I like this FTX bullet because of its flatter-shooting characteristics compared to a roundnose for shots out to the distance you mentioned. If you zero your rifle a couple of inches high at 100, you'll be dead on out to the longer range so you can have a point blank strike from muzzle to 175, once you get your gun set properly. I personally would get my scope as close to the bore center as possible, so I wouldn't use see-thru mounts, especially since you're gonna use a low power scope, possibly a 1 to 4 variable which won't prevent you from seeing the kill zone on a deer at close range. And if you don't handload, you can get the FTX bullet in Hornady factory ammo. Just my 2 cents, jd45

I think that the 35 Remington is a good deer rifle out to 200 yards. Personally I like the 358 Winchester better. Then the only lever action you can get it in is the Browning lever action and that would be a old one.

With a max load you will get 2200 FPS that will give you 1650 foot pounds of energy at 100 yards and you will be 4" high using a 200 yard zero. 1240 foot pounds of energy at 200 yards and 930 foot pounds of energy at 300.

For a clean kill it is considered you need at least 1000 pounds of energy to take a animal. With a 200 yard zero you will have a 17" drop at 300. I would say that 250 yards would be a max shot for the 35 Remington. That gives you 1075 foot pounds of energy and a 8" hold over. With some of the rifles they would be hard put to get the 2200 FPS out of them. I don't know what the factory loadings list there FPS at.

The more sedate 1900 F.P.S. is the norm in a hand load. That changes things a lot. You will get 1200 foot pounds of energy at 100 yards. At 200 yards you will get 900 foot pounds of energy. So if you stick with the 1000 foot pounds of energy being the least you can have for a clean kill you will be limiting the 35 Remington to a 150 yards.

Now considering that the 44mag has taken a pile of deer with a hand gun and rifle over the years. You would have a hard time convincing people that it isn't a hundred yard deer killer. It only produces 998 foot pounds of energy at 100 yards moving at 1500 F.P.S. using a 200gr bullet.

I would say that the 35 Remington is a 200 yard rifle with normal loads using 200 gr bullets. If you dropped that to 180 gr bullets you don't really gain anything. It will move a little faster but because it's lighter you don't gain any energy. All things considered it isn't a bad round for deer. I wouldn't want to use it on the bigger black bears. I know it has taken them. I would just like more power for bears.
