Re: 35 Newton Revisited

07 someone named the 358X375 Ruger the 35 or 358 Yukon. Quality Cartridge has this cartridge in the listing.
Zhat apparently rents the reamer. Pacific tool probably has one on the shelf.

4D reamer rentals has a 35 Newton on their list of rentals.

Either Cartridge should run the 225 Accubond at roughly 3000fps! For whatever reason the 358STA Hammers everything like they were hit by a Mack truck.

Re: 35 Newton Revisited

Here is my 35 Newton, built off a Model 70 Classic Stainless... Feed and works really well. Haven't gotten to the range yet, but it's coming. Loaded up some 225 Sierra's with RL17 to run through it a little. Thinking it should be a super elk stomper..















I used 375 Ruger brass to form it. Worked well. Trimmed everything down.. Can't wait to touch a few of them off.

Thank you sir. That is the plan, to run 225 AB's in this rifle as well. Probably try the 225's in my 338 Win Mag this Fall as well.

The Newton looks real good with 225's.

Re: 35 Newton Revisited

Well, I was getting a little worried. I had wanted try some more seating depths but I couldn't really load much shorter than 3.29.. Maybe could squeak a little more, but I am getting pretty close to the ogive. I decided on 76.5 in order to run through them. Had a nice day at the range yesterday. The little 6X Nikon worked much better at 200 yards with the green squared targets.

Anyhow, here is what I came up with..

All groups were at 200 yards.



3.31 - 2908, 2943, 2930

3.30 - 2939, 2927, 2959

3.29 - 2969, 2950, 2962 ----

I also shoot one round of each length, at its own target. So for three shots, I am shooting one 3.31, 3.30, and 3.29. Then, the next round I start at 3.29 and work backwards. Might seem crazy but it works for me.

But this is another instance of an AB being over .1 off the rifling before it'll really come alive.

I was kinda getting worried, cause if the 225 AB didn't do what I wanted it to, I haven't picked up a back up bullet just yet!

It was a great range day though.

Re: 35 Newton Revisited

Glad to see other people appreciating Newtons work. I have wanted to try the 225 accubonds and the game kings. But I need to replace my stock first.(not for the recoil sensitive) Well that and I am building another 30 Newton so I don't do damage to another original. To many projects. Every Newton I have with a Pope barrel has been a shooter. Keep up the good work.
