I have just purchased a Marlin 336 LTD in 35 Remington and wanted to get some info on a couple of loads for the 185 gr BTB FNGC.  I have seen 2 loads listed with this bullet and RL-7.  One is with 28 grs and the other is with 34 grs.  What kind of velocity can I expect from these loads in an 18.5 inch barrel?  Also, I have heard that marlin 1894's need a larger diameter slug than normal.  Does this apply to 336's as well?  If anyone has any loads for 180 gr Hornady JHP-XTP or Remington 180 gr JHPs I would appreciate them also.  Thanks, James D.

Another question on bullets.  I prefer to work up 2 loads for all of my rifles. One is a full power hunting load and the other is a reduced power load for plinking, small game and to save wear and tear on the rifle.  If you had to choose ONE bullet for a full power load for deer and hog would it be the BTB 185 gr FNGC, 200 gr Remington SPCL or some other weight/brand?  This is if the accuracy of each bullet is roughly equal.  Once again any info to help speed up my learning curve on this round is appreciated (no use re-inventing the wheel <!--emo&:)--><img src="http://beartoothbullets.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'><!--endemo-->)  Thanks again, James D.
