Default Thoughts on the .35 remington cartridge

Anyone have an opinion on the .35 rem? Effective range? Drop at 100 yds? The rifle would be a marlin 336. Should I put a scope? Any info is appreciated.

Don't know much about it, a guy I used to hunt deer with used one. Most of his shots were inside 100 and deer were DRT

When I was a kid in north Ga.,,, the Marlin 336 in .35 Remington was as common as the 30-30 Winchester. In those woods, a 75 yard shot was considered long due to all the brush and cover, most areas you could only see around fifty, even in a tree stand. Like any other cartridge, shot placement makes all the difference. It served those who used it, very well in that area, most simply used the factory sights, but to me a scope is always a plus, giving one a better sight picture, especially in low light, so I would top it with a nice compact 4 power optic. With a scope and some good loads, and practice at longer ranges, it should serve one well out to 150 yards easily, the few I have shot and one I owned, grouped about 2 to 3 inches at 100 yards, good minute of deer accuracy and it was a popular bear load in those days.

Ballistics 101, ballistics by the inch or any ballistics table has the answers to your questions about the cartridge. Do you need a scope? How am I supposed to know? I don't know what you intend to do with the gun or if you have good eye sight.

I have one which I started using about two years ago specifically for HOGS and so far it is awesome. I load the 220 gr SP but have not yet put this load over the sky screens so I can't give you any exact info, but the hogs don't like it!
They make the new Leverevolution ammo in 35 and if it performs even close to the 30-30 I have used it would make the 35a 200+ yd gun.

.35 Remington is one of those classic cartridges that does not get the respect it deserves because it has been eclipsed by uber high power 1000 yard killers. It is still perfect 100+ yard game getter. It is a great Hog, Whitetail, even Black bear cartridge at 100+ yards and 100 yards or less for Elk w/ a 200gr bullet. It is actually the cartridge that got me looking at older Mauser cartridges like the 9.3x57. I was in love. Never change to a scope on these old thumpers. The .35 carries 1400+fpe at 100 yards w/ a 200gr sp, that is some serious hurt.
If you Zero at 50 yards, drop is less then an inch.

A guy I work with had one deer (whitetail)rifle his entire life up until a couple years ago and it is the very gun you are talking about. It was all he needed for 40+ years. I agree it doesn't get the respect it should.
