I am gearing up for a new TC barrel....25-35 15" custom shop and was hoping for some help on good powders to use for it.

I will be using mostly reformed 30-30 brass and jacketed bullets at first. Powder usage will be mostly with 4198, 5744 perhaps, and some 3031 if I can remember to get a can or two of it. Once I get a jacketed load nailed down, I will jump onto the CB's with some Unique and blue-dot loads.

Now here is where the hard part begins...what is the upper limit to this cartridge in a relatively stronger case than it was originally chambered for? I don't expect a 25-06, but heck I am pretty sure that I can get fairly close to the factory specs on the old 117 gr. sp...it shows at 2230 fps and 1292 ft lbs energy at the muzzle. I am not looking for a hot-rod, mind you. Besides, if it turns out that the cartridge can only give me about 2200 fps with the 117, that will be fine, too. I can always play with it until I am ready for somthing diffrent and get it re-chambered for the 25-35 AI. :)

I have loaded the 25-35 for about 15 years, including a 10" Contender and a rebarreled 94AE. 25-35 brass is still available from Winchester, although it is only run once a year or so. Midway, Natchez, Graffs or Midsouth have it from time to time. After you try to resize 30-30 down to 25-35 you will soon lose interest in that. Way too much effort to be worthwhile.

In your 15" barrel you can use most any data published for the 25-35. 21 gr of 3031 and a Hornday 117 rn is a good starting point.

In the TC you can use any of the spire point 100 grain bullets with the 117 load data you will find.

25-35 load data is out there, just search the major powder companies and other normal places you look for data, it will be there.

Good luck, the 25-35 is a lot of fun.

Thanks furdog...


Want to add...changed my mind...for 10 bucks more I am getting the 16.25 so I can set it up as a carbine or pistol.
