.35 remington

I have a 1952 Marlin 336 in .35 rem. I loaded H4895 with Hornady 200 rn. It wear's a Leupold 2x7. The gun shoots great. I killed 2 deer and a bear with it. All expired with in 50 yards. I butcher my own. The problem is there's not much blood or much of an exit hole. The bullet doesn't seem to expand much. I just switched to speer hot-cor 180 grain flat point. It shoots good with that bullet as well. does anyone have any expirence with this caliber? Just seems like the Hornady is to hard. Thanks...Shuey.

Well first of all, bear hide is tougher and exit wounds, unless shot with a larger caliber, more so magnums or the like, does show exit wounds.


As far as Hornady bullets or any other bullets they have to be at high velocity, and not be pushed beyond the normal range say 100 -150 yards.

I'm running max load and all shots were 75 yards or less.

It got the job done... LOL


It's not a typical high velocity round and looses steam pretty fast.


You have to take into consideration it was originally chambered in the Remington model 8 semi auto, designed for recoil operation to chamber a new round with medium pressure.
