At my suggestion, my son got one in .35 Remington a few years ago. He got the all-stainless version--not as pretty of the blue, of course, but weather-resistant. He says it "kills on both ends", but he's taken an awful lot of deer with it. I had a .30-30 version around 40 years ago, and like a fool traded it. Fine rifle. So is my second 39A .22, which I've had for forty years.
