    Mine likes the 200gr Remington Core-Lokt well enough, Hornady Leverevolution ammo gets pretty good reviews too but I need to do more testing with it before I endorse it. Personally I'd use the 200gr bullets on both deer and hogs although we don't have any hogs here. Just stay away from pointy bullets with that tubular magazine.Stu

    I got a bunch of 150 core lokts on clearance at Dicks. I used those for siting in my gun. I load up with the Hornadys for deer. I've only taken one but it dropped him dead in his tracks. Only a 40 yard shot but I didn't have to do any tracking. You don't have a ton of options like other calibers, but a 200 gr bullet knocks the hell out of a deer so you really don't need many options.

    Any factory 200gr offering works very well.... avoid the 150gr's.

    Welcome to MO from Michigan's beautiful UP.
    As Stu925 said, don't use pointy boo lets in a tube mag. The point of one round will rest against the primer of the round in front of it.
    I hunt with the Hornady 200gr gummy tips. The furthest a deer has run after being hit was 25 yards. They hit hard. They shoot flatter than most other 35 Rem rounds.
    Remington 200gr CoreLokts are great. You may also want to try Winchester Power Point and Federal Power Shok. Like the Core Lokt they are 200gr and round nose so OK in a tube mag.
    Remington 150gr come in a pointy version so only load one in the chamber and one in the mag. I have shot these and they are accurate and shoot flatter than the 200gr.

    Buy a box of each and spend a day at the range. Shoot 3 and let the barrel cool before shooting the next 3. Take a .22 or a book. I recomend a 39A for the .22 and a 336 in 30-30 so you don't fall asleep waiting for the 35 barrel to cool.
    Enjoy!

    I'm partial to the Hornady round in 2000gr. Took three deer this season with it all at 80+ yards, none went farther than 15 -20 yards.

    Every gun is different. I have guns that shoot the Leverevolution bullets great and others that like Remington core-loks. Listen to Rider and buy a box of each and spend some time at the range. The gun will tell you what it likes. Welcome to Marlin Owners.

    To many variables to consider. Easy answer, Rem Core-Lokt, any thing but the 150 gr. No reason,just the easy answer.

    The best part of the hunt is not the harvest but in the experience.
