.35 Remington

OK, let's hear your stories good or bad. Throw in some of dad and grandad's stories if you want. Who likes this cartridge, who hates it. What's it good for. Let's just discuss this cartridge. I was a .35 Remington guy for years. I handloaded it and hunted with it a lot. Back in those days I always seemed to have a .30-30 or .32 Special in my hands when I filled my tags though. I did take a seven pointer with the .35 remington in 2003 on the third day of rifle season. It was just before dark and this buck came out into the field. I shot him at 100 yards behind the shoulder with a 150 grain Core-Lokt. He went down on his front legs and tried running away. I shot twice more and he was down. I quit using the 150 grain after that. I just picked up a new to me Marlin in .35 and I'm starting to generate some interest in the old round again so I'd like to hear some stories.

Re: .35 Remington

Moose, that's funny you posted this. Even though ill probably be buying a 7mm-08. The 35 Whelen keeps calling me. I've always wanted to experiment with that caliber. And I'm still considering it. I'm curios to read the posts you drum up with this one.

Who is John Galt?

Nothing like a good bird dog and a fine shotgun.

Re: .35 Remington

Shot my first deer with the 35 rem. I use the 200 grainers for mine. I also have the new XLR and I will tell you I love it. It is much smoother action that Marlins from years ago. My father in law always told me I had to be rough with a lever action so it would cycle right. These new ones are super smoothe. I had 300 rounds reloaded for me with the new 200 grain hornady ammo and I'm getting great groups at 100 yards. I got to use the 35 last year and shot 3 does in 2 states and all three dropped in their tracks. No tracking what so ever. I'm very happy with mine.Stainless with black laminate makes also for a good looking rifle.

Re: .35 Remington

Probably one of the better cast bullet cartridges available. Perfect mix of velocity and case fill. Tom.

Re: .35 Remington

35 rem is Ok. I load for it. The marlin micro groove barrels are not a help.

Not the best Marlin lever for PA hunting, that is reserved for the awesome 375 wincheter marlin 336 lever gun. Just the best. The 38-55 is second and the 35 right behind it,

Re: .35 Remington

When I was a kid, one of our neighbors hunted deer with his grandad's 141 pump in 35 Rem. He used to grumble about it, but was too cheap to buy another rifle. He usually managed to take a deer with it each year, too. It was the first rifle in 35 Rem. that I was ever around.

Some friends had them, but since I already had a M94 in 32 Special, the cartridge never interested me all that much.

That changed when I "rescued" a Marlin 336 Sporting Carbine in 35 Rem. some years ago. Have killed a coupla deer with it since, love that little devil. Very accurate with 200gr Core Lokts, enjoy shooting it with the Williams receiver sight I added to it years ago.

Some folks' learnin' curves just look like circles...3A Camp/also hunt 4B
