    Good choice! Scope is fine, you would be amazed at how well a 4x works for hunting, very fast target acquisition and able to see target well. If it was me I'd consider changing the rings before the scope.

    I was shopping for ammo but as you know the 35 rem is either out of stock or crazy expensive. But . . . . . I started calling gun dealers in the general area and found a guy that had some leftover ammo (sold the 35 cal rifles) and I got 100 rounds for $100! It was a mixture of 150gr and 200gr but now I can see which type the rifle likes best. Shoot, $1/round works pretty good for me. Makes the original deal I got even better.

    Crazy, but I stopped a local gun shop today just to window shop. He had a couple new ones but nothing old.

    Congratulations on a great purchase! Nice looker! My two JM stamped Marlin 35 Rems are my most prized and favorite rifles. IMHO, it is really hard to beat that round! If I could only have one rifle, it would be one of those 35 REMs. I usually go with Leupold, Redfield or Burris scopes. I've had really good luck picking up used scopes of those flavors at decent prices at gun shows, thru dealers or friends. With that said, I have bought rifles that came with older Tasco mounted scopes on them. Those older Tasco scopes were actually pretty good considering that they are a budget scope.

    Be careful as the 150 grain ammo is probably the pointy stuff, which you don't want to fill inside a tubular magazine.

    Nice score on the 35!
