Does your barrel have a muzzle break? If not, then yes you will encounter more recoil. I have a rifle chambered in this cartridge and the recoil is bad enough with heavy loads.

I recommend you shoot a reduced load of H4895 behind a Hornady 180 SSPB (single shot pistol bullet). H4895 is the only powder you can safely reduce your load to 60% of the maximum load listed in Hodgdon's data. See Hodgdon's website for youth reloading data information. This will fully explain Youth/Reduced velocity loads using only H4895.

Anyway, my Ruger rifle will print half inch groups at 100 yards with this bullet when my initial start velocity is 2,350 fps. Makes a nice load similiar to a 35 Remington.

Good luck and let us know your results. I am a 35 caliber nut myself and have dreamed of an Encore pistol barrel in 350 Remington Magnum.

I had an XP in 350 RM. Notice I said HAD. It did have an SSK brake but was more recoil than I wanted. I find my Magna-ported 375 JDJ barrel pleasent to shoot.
