    35 Remington for deer hunting???

    I just picked up a used Marlin 336 CS in 35 Rem, spur-of-the-moment purchase. I was wondering if this a good caliber for deer hunting and if so what factory ammo would be a good choice? Thanks, RP
    God, please help me! My brain is telling me I need another lever action Marlin.

    Not a chance! Get a Red Ryder








    Seriously though, the .35Rem is a great caliber for most any game here in N. America!

    The federal ammo clocked 2045 fps out of my 35 remmy. Never killed any thing with that ammo. Shoots real well out my rifle. Midway usa always had some in stock. Never could get my hands on any Remington ammo. I'd stay away from Hornandy ammo caued my rifle to jam up all the time. Was real accurate though. The best ammo will be the stuff you make yourself.

    Howdy RLPMD,

    You are now the lucky owner of a great rifle! The 35 Remington is thought of by many as one of the all time great deer cartridges ever made. It's not a speed demon or super powerhouse but within it's limits, it gets the job done as well or better than almost anything out there. Great rifle for woods hunting. It handles quick as lightning and really smacks a deer or hog. The ammo of choice for most and the one that has stood the test of time for decades is the Remington core lokt 200 grain round nose ammo.

    Somewhere on here there was a post a while back about some serious penetration/performance testing done with the 35 remington and various bullets. It's a pretty long read but well worth it. I did a quick look but don't remember where it is. Perhaps someone else here will point it out to you.

    By the way, WELCOME TO MARLIN OWNERS!!!
    Thoughts on Remlins: The day I walk into a sporting goods and honestly mistake a Remlin gun for a JM gun, THAT will be the day I think about buying one. Until then, they can keep 'em.

    Words to live by: Just because something is primitive, doesn't mean it has to be crude. Just because something is custom, doesn't mean it's quality.

    Re: 35 Remington for deer hunting???

    My first deer rifle was a 336rc .35 rem made in '55

    I was young and wanted a levergun, win94, or a 336 in .30/30..
    A friend of mine inheritted a gun collection from his grandpa and sold me the .35 for $100..
    Even through in all his old ammo along with it..
    I had never even heard of a .35!!!

    I still have it to this day!!!
    Harvested many a deer with that old rifle!!!

    My favorite factory load is remington 200 grain core-lokts.
    Favorite reload slug is the speer 180 grain soft point.

    Extremely accurate, good knock down on deer!!!

    It won't let you down!!!

    A 336CS in .35Rem was my first deer rifle 24yrs ago. I'm still using it... it gets the job DONE

    Stick with 200gr if yer using factory ammo. Federal, Remington, Winchester, Hornady all work. Just experiment and see what works best in your rifle

    This is a joke, right? We all know that the 35 Remington is incapable of killing deer, only shooting a 200 gr bullet at 2050 fps, as modern deer take bullets in excess of 3000 fps to penetrate their armor-like hides.

    Now, if this is indeed a serious inquiry, there is a tone of information on the site, including information on the 200 gr Remington Core-Lokt ammo, which is some of the best standard info for deer hunting.
