I was at a gun show this weekend looking to stock up on ammo for my 336 in 35 Rem. The going rate of a box at the LGS is around $30+ tax for corelokts or leverevo so I wanted to see if I could beat that at the show. After checking out all the ammo dealers I found a box of 200gr SP in 35 Rem from a company called "Obsolete Ammunition" out of Oregon for $22. They have a disclaimer on the box that some of their brass may be reshaped from a different caliber as the brass for older calibers may not be available. I opened the box and was pleased to see all Winchester 35 Rem brass that looked clean and new. I cant seem to find anything online about this company or how their ammo stacks up, so I was wondering if anyone has used this stuff. The guy at the table didn't know much about the company either, just that they make so rare cartridges that no one else does.
I am at work now, but I will post some photos tonight.
I've never heard of them, but I did find some 30 Remington still being made by Wisconsin Cartridge. I'm glad to see more companies working to fill that demand.

I'd imagine that with all the recent surge in sales of 9mm, 45ACP, .22, .223, .308 that some of the round like .35Rem ain't gonna be available for while

I have never had a problem finding ammo for the 35Rem around these parts, there are even some people that sell handloads. I just have never heard of thes guys before and even Mr. Google cant seem to dig up any info on these guys
When I need .35 Rem. ammo, I walk down to Walmart and buy some in the green-and-yellow box...

Best way to find an obsolete gun is to rely on federally controlled ammo manufacturers for it. Best way to avoid having an obsolete gun is to gather enough components and reloading equipment to last a life time. Owner of two 7mm-06's .32 Special. Neither are common off the shelf items.

Im not saying that 35 rem is an obsolete round, I am saying is that the name of the company that made this stuff is called "Obsolete Ammunition"
photos on the way
I have heard of them, but cant remember where.

Those are pretty steep prices for ammo. I just bought 2 boxes of LEVERevolution 160Gr. FTX for $23.99, for my 30-30Win, a box and thats the expensive stuff around here. I usually pay around $16.99-$19.99 a box for Federal Power-Shok, Win Super-X, Fusion or Remington Core-Lokt. The only thing I've seen close to that $30 a box is LEVERevolution 140Gr. Mono-Flex and that's usually $28.99-$29.99 a box. I usually see 35Rem in the same ball park, usually about 3-5 dollars more a box. i saw Remington Core-Lokt 200Gr., LEVERevolution 200Gr. for $26.99 a box 4 days ago at my LGS.
But I have never heard of OA before either.
