Yeah, they had them both in their new flyer.... I think the market must be terrible for big game rifles these days, I know of no one who bought a new deer rifle, some varmint rifles, a long ranger and a few of the worthless noise maker .223's but a big game rifle, none...economy? Waiting to see the election results? Or the massive drop in hunters these days, either or all...nice to see they had them if someone is looking, no line either ..

35s were never very popular but these 2 are at the top of my list. Yes, yes, yes,lesser cartridges will get the job done and they are not long range guns, but how much game is shot beyond 250 yards? When I want a hammer, these will do.

The 336 in .35 Rem is one of my favorite guns and I'm thinking about turning a 7600 I have into a .35 Whelen carbine

I have a custom pre 64 win m70 in 35 whelen.....absolutely love it. I am a big fan of the mid bores. The 35 whelen and the 338 win mag are by far my favorite hunting rifles and cartridges.

The middle bores have never been as popular with North American hunters as 30 caliber rifles. This is a mystery to me.

Hunt bear with a 358 blr. They are a nice gun. The old man has done his fair share of killing with the tried and true 35rem. Another excellent cartridge for in the woods.
