I've got a hankering for another lever gun and I was thinking about a Marlin 336 in 35 Remington. Not a new Remlin an older 336 JM stamped if I can find one reasonable.

I've never fired 35 Rem. so I have to depend on research and what I'm told by those who have.

I reload so ammo shouldn't be a problem.

Anyone here have any experience with this round? How'd you like it compared to say...a 30-30? How'd it perform on deer and hogs out to 150 yards? Exit wound?

I used one for about 10 years. Shot tons of deer using 200 gr Corelokts, which left a great blood trail every time. I used a fixed 4 power scope after I found how hard it was to use iron sights in dim light. I shot em in the lungs and they never went far. Ought to be good medicine on hogs.

I always said that max effective range was 150 yards, but shot a few at 250 or so.

Is it better than a 30-30? I always said it was, but Dad had a 30-30 and disagreed with me. Truth is that both calibers did a fine job, and I canít really say with conviction that one is better than the other.

You may have a tough time finding brass for that 35.

Love the 35 Remington. Iíve had many 30-30s come and go but the 35 is still around. It dispatches deer nicely at reasonable ranges. I prefer it to the 30-30 obviously. Is it better? The market didnít think so.

Dies are readily available but brass is another story. Best bet is to buy factory ammo and shoot it. Then reload it. 3-5 boxes should be plenty (opinion) and dang near as cheap as brass if you can find it.

The 35 is certainly softer on the should and has a nice bang flop effect at reasonable ranges with a soft flat 200 grain bullet.

Great old round. I haven't hunted with one on years but like said above. Ranchdog will probably chime in he has some.

There is a lot to be said for big bullets moving fast enough but not crazy fast.

I prefer mine to my .30-30, but mostly because I like the bigger frontal area of the bullet for hogs. Itís a JM stamped Marlin 336.

I have a couple of 30-30s and have had others in the past. They're fun to shot but I wouldn't mount a scope and hunt with either of them. I like em the way they are.

I think I'll start my search for a 336 in 35 Rem. Thanks for your input.

Methinks that the market just liked the rifle (M94) which was only available in the 30-30.

Haah! I guess I'm a broken record. I do own several rifles chambered in the 35 Rem; a bolt, lever, and pump, and it is a great cartridge for hunting the greater part of Texas. A one point several years ago, brass became tough to find, but that seems to be resolved.

The SAAMI 33.5K PSI limit is a bit anemic, but in a Marlin, I'm good with 40.0K PSI. With my Rem 600, I shoot it like a 358 Win. The Remington 200-grain Core-Lokt is a standard, with a jacketed bullet, but my preference is the Speer 180-grain HCFP. I've always wanted to try the Sierra 200-grain PHRN, and I've used the Hornady #3515 InterLock. I use a 190-grain bullet of my design which NOE sells with either the standard lube grooves or with Micro-Bands for tumble lubing.

I do think the 35 Rem is a good cast bullet rifle and there are plenty of different molds offered. If I was buying cast bullets, I probably go with the Montana Bullet Works RCBS 82028 sized to .359" and using the MBW treated alloy.

My Marlin is a 336D which was a special run 336 Guide Gun. I have it setup with the XS Sights system, and it is a super hunting rifle.



My ballistics with H335.



Personally, I don't have a problem hunting with it out to 250-yards. Here are the terminal calculations.



As far as the 30-30 Win vs. the 35 Rem debate, there is always the 35-30!



With the strength of the Win M94 action, it offers a lot of possibilities.

When I hunted the Chap WMA, I used the Rem 600. All the hunters that saw it had never seen a 600 nor heard of the 35 Rem.

Only change I did on my 35 was switch out to peep sights and fiber optic.
