Need some 35 Rem FTX data
I need some data if anyone can supply it. In the process of working up a load for my 35 Rem chambered Marlin 336, using the Hornady 200gr FTX bullet and only have data from Hodgdon, which lists a max charge of 38.3 grains of Varget. It is also noted as being compressed, though mine isnt compressed when I got to 38.3 grains of Varget. I see absolutely no pressure signs and the velocity is about 75-100 fps slower than I think it ought to be. As it is a somewhat newer bullet, my other load manuals dont have it listed. I think it is perhaps a bit conservative and was wondering what other books have Varget max load listed as.
So, if anyone has Lyman's 49th edition or another newer manual, could you look up the max charge for Varget in the 35 Rem with the 200gr FTX bullet.
