.35-30/30 (35-30)

.35-30/30 (35-30)
Warning! Notes: Historical Notes - Although not widely known, the 35-30/30 is one of our oldest wildcats, having originated around the turn of the century. Its original purpose was to salvage worn-out 32-40 and 32 Winchester Special barrels by reboring these to 35 caliber. General Comments - As a cast bullet cartridge, the 35-30/30, with its longer neck, permits use of cast bullets as heavy as 270 grains seated to a depth that will feed through magazine rifles designed for the 30-30. This is not possible with the 35 Remington and its short neck. In a strong action, the 35-30/30 can be loaded to deliver performance approaching the 375 Winchester. However, in a strong action, the 35 Remington can be stepped up quite a bit, too. It is possible to attain 1,800 fps with a 300-grain bullet in a strong action chambered for the 35-30/30, which would make it suitable for elk or moose at short range. It is a good cartridge for upping the performance of 30-30 rifles or for salvaging worn-out 32 Special barrels. Dies are available from RCBS and chambering reamers from Clymer.
