Default 35 Remington?

Does anybody have one of these; in a Marlin lever gun or otherwise? I’m curious if it would make a more practical/versatile gun for Texas deer and hogs than a guide gun in 45-70.

How is ammo price and availability compared to 45-70?

How does it perform on game compared to 45-70? To 30-30?

Have had several. 35 is a stomper, but nothing beats a 45-70. The 35 can be loaded warm with impressive performance, but for regular ammo performance it is a bit like a 30-30 with heavier bullets. You would be very happy with how it performs on game. Definitely a better impact than with 30-30.

not in the same league as the 45-70

basically it is only a 30-30 with a .358 caliber bullet

it does hit harder than a 30-30 and would indeed make a better gun brush gun than the 30-30

45-70 is more popular and ammo is easier to find, and it is usually quite a bit more $ than 30-30 ammo,, i expect the limited availability of the 35 would push the price closer to the 45-70 than the 30-30...

hard to go wrong with any of the three

I've owned a few over the years and it is a good deer and pig round and has a "cool" factor going for it. Ammo is expensive and at times hard to find. Even for a hand loader....I went months last year and couldn't find 200gr round or flat-point bullets.

I have hunted with one since I was 12 years old.

It does great on deer and hogs. I've shot 45-70, but do not own one.

Friend hunts with a Contender chambered for it. Great deer round out to a couple hundred yards. Ammo is expensive and sometimes hard to find.

The 35 Remington is a hammer. My grandfather had one(passed down to my lil brother) it was accurate and hit hard. Great Texas deer/hog gun.

Inherited my grandpa's 35 Remington this weekend.

Last time I bought him some bullets I found them at Wal-Mart of all places

Sounds like a lot of us inherited them from our dads and grandfathers.

Grandpa bought mine in 1957, and another just like it in 30-30 (which my brother received)



This is a double I got a few years back.

That big pig, looked like something out of a horror film. The exit wound was big enough to put my hand in.

My vote is the 30-30 shooting Hornady LEVERevolution Ammunition. As far as store bought ammo it is going to be hard to beat the performance and the price for your deer and hog hunting. Happy New Year.

Took possession of my grandpa's this last weekend. Bought new shortly after marrying my grandma he bought it for $35 and had to finance it paying $5 at a time. Looked up serial # and it was made 1950.

That is cool!

No safety. No sling studs drilled in. Just right!

Is it drilled and tapped for a scope?

It is. Had an older 2-7 tasco, which was surprisingly really clear, on it I removed.

Going to shoot this open sights until my eyes won't let me anymore.

.35 Rem is a great round for deer, hogs, and black bear. Original loading was with a 200gr round nose. My great grandfather bought a Remington Model 8 in .35 Rem when they first cam out with the first auto loader.That gun was also adopted by law enforcement for use to combat heavily armed criminals. It was used to the demise of Bonnie and Clyde.

Remington makes a 150gr CoreLock for use. I've shot a few turkeys and deer with them. They are super flat shooting compared to the 180gr and 200gr offerings out there. I've also reloaded this cartrige up with some Speer 250gr SP just for kicks. Lotta fun shooting 5 gallon tin cans at 200 with those. I've also pulled some 115gr 9mm projectiles out and loaded those, and several .357 projectiles, and shot them from .35 Rem cases just for the fun of it. I do recommend for hunting deer sized game to stay around 180-200gr.
Did I say I was shooting it out of a T/C Contender Super 14 ? I'm also looking for a good deal on a quality Rem Model 8 in .35 Rem to add back into my collection.

Funny you should say that. I always call mine the "Hammer". I would never sell it. A JM marked Marlin 336.

I say had. He still has it. I agree. That's a life time gun for sure. She is a beauty.
