1. Description

SMc cartridges were developed in an attempt to produce an efficient cartridge combining low recoil, low heat, and high velocity. The 5 mm/35 SMc has produced velocities in excess of 4.800 ft/s 1.500 m/s shooting a 30-grain 1.9 g molybdenum disulfide-coated Berger bullet from a 28 inches 71 cm Pac-Nor barrel, far higher than its commercial counterpart the.204 Ruger.

Although it is a wildcat cartridge, rifles chambered for 5mm/35 are available from the custom shop at Savage Arms.

The patents for the cartridge are US 7210260, US 7086336 and US 2003079639.
