Nothing at all bad about the 35 Remington caliber. The only reason I would be reluctant to purchase one would be the availability of ammunition in most stores compared to the 30-30 which is prevalent about everywhere you go. But the 35 Remington is also a good 100 yard brush gun and short range deer gun. A friend and I use to shoot competition Silhouette Matches. We both had Thompson Contender Pistols with 10" Barrels. I had the 30-30 Cal. Loaded to near 308 specs and he had his chambered in 35 Remington and the gun performed well at 200 yards with the right loads. Both the 30-30 and the 35 Remington grouped at 4" at 200 yards! So I guess the issue would be if you have one you have a good rifle and especially in the older Marlin 336 and similar models in 35 Remington you have a nice piece. In fact, I would like to find a good used Marlin 336-C in 30-30 or similar rifle made in the 60s. Sold mine years ago and could kick myself. Need it NO! Want it YES!
Keep us informed on this 35 Remington issue!

Trimmed to be Indiana deer legal (1.8" max case length).
It's 1 for 1, shot was only 50 yards. 200 gr didn't exit, clipped onside shoulder (was down in a creekbottom, I was partway up ridge in a tree stand.
Went 30 yards. Internal damage was pretty wicked.

Mine shoots right at an inch at 100yds, but figure it a 200 max due to ballistics.

Shortened .35 quite popular here, can't find a 336, 760 or Contender rifle bbl for reasonable anymore.

If you get a rig with a stock setup for iron sight usage, scoping it might suck. Thankfully one can get lace on/stick on cheepads. I made mine from Kydex.

IMHO if you aren't going to fit the gun to you, might as well not scope it. And no, see through rings are not a good idea.

The small ring Mausers ( like the Swedish Mauser ) are not good for high-pressure cartridges, so the selection of chamberings on replacement barrels is limited.

The .35 Remington is one of that select few. - You can get a .35 Remington barrel for your small-ring Mauser at Midway.

I've always thought that a Swede with a light stock chambered for .35 Remington would work out great with a 1.5-4 compact variable scope.

Sure would be a sweet whitetail rig... Light, handy - and accurate.

When I was younger, I would've put a Williams peep sight on it.

Problem is they are already made in a superior low pressure cartridge, the 9.3x57. My oldest son has a 1933 Husqvarna, I have a 1943 Husqvarna. With the 150 yard express sights they are good to go with no optics.
.35 Remington w/ a 200gr SP at 2000fps: 100 yards 1104fpe, 200 yards -11.4" drop w/ 50 yard zero.
9.3x57 w/ 286gr sp at 2100fps: 100 yards 2366fpe, 200 yards -9.1 w/ 50 yard zero. With 150 yard zero, it is still point blank range on whitetail at 200 yards.
It also would have to travel 750 yards to hit 1100fpe.

9.3x57 sounds like a good cartridge - but I can't remember seeing them stocked anywhere.

Here in the US, .35 Remington ( the subject of this topic ) is relatively easy to find.

I would hazard a guess that the .35 Remington, a proven deer cartridge, is not only easier to find but less expensive, and more comfortable to shoot than the 9.3x57.

Shooters of the 9.3x62 would make comments about the 9.3x57 - very similar to yours about the .35 Remington, then the .35 Whelen shooters would kick in, then we would eventually hear from the .358 Norma magnum crowd etc, etc..

The topic here is the .35 Remington - and I'm pointing out that it works out well in the small ring Mausers, and barrels chambered for the .35 Remington are readily available for those actions... That's all.

Of course there are larger cartridges, but here we are talking about the .35 Remington.

The .35 Remington is essentially a 30-30 cartridge necked up to about .35. The ballistics are very close to that of a 30-30, except some say that hits harder than the 30-30. A good caliber, I've been wanting a vintage Marlin in one for years, but have never found the right gun for the right price when I had the money.

Actually they are two totally different cartages. The 35 was originally designed for use in the old Remington autos, rimless.
