Winchester

The .25-35 Winchester was developed by Winchester in 1895 for the Model 94 lever action rifle. Based on the .30-30 case, this was also one of the first small bore, smokeless powder cartridges developed in the United States. The .25-35 Winchester is considered one of the most accurate cartridges in the older lever action rifles. Reputedly it will shoot as accurately as any .25 caliber cartridge in a good single shot rifle. This cartridge is also quite popular in Europe where it was known as the 6.5x52R.

Although considered a deer cartridge, its power is about the minimum that should be used on large game. Loads for firearms having tubular magazines must be restricted to those with flat or round points.

The SAAMI Maximum Average Pressure for the .25-35 Winchester is 37,000 C.U.P.
