    Traded for this Model 336, 35 caliber, 1981 mnfg date.

    Just wanted to share some photos of what I traded for yesterday. I did some trading for this Marlin 336, 35 Caliber, Manufactured in 1981. As one can see from these photos it is in really nice condition with very light use. It is shown with a scope mount which I plan to remove shortly and just use the iron sights.. Over the July 4th holiday I just purchased a model 336W, 30/30 caliber manufactured in 2009. (It has the "JM" stamp on the left side of the barrel. It must have been manufactured just before the Remington take over)..So I now have TWO nice Marlins just added to my gun collection. Also, when deer season rolls around in November I will let my 13 year old son hunt with 30/30, and I will use the 35 Caliber. My son killed his first 8 point buck last year using a .308 Winchester. Hopefully we will get to try these Marlins out on a couple of Virginia Whitetail deer this season.
    On my way home yesterday I stopped by a local sporting goods store to check out what kind of ammo was available for the 35 Remington. Immediately the Hornady Lever-Revolution caught my attention. Since I have never shot or even owned a 35 caliber before, I was wondering if anyone has had good experience with the Hornaday ammo? Or would I just be as well off sticking with the Remington 200 gr Core-Lokt?
    Have a wonderful day!!

    Another "old soldier" finds a good home.

    As far as the ammo goes. Try a box. It goes bang in my .35 loud and clear.
    The best part of the hunt is not the harvest but in the experience.

    LE's are fine. I prefer Core-Lokts because they're cheaper and I'm not shooting past 50-60yds with my .35Rem.

    That is a nice rifle indeed.

    The Hornady does good in both my .35 & .30-30's . . . a little longer/flatter, but I get good accuracy w/ the Rem's and Federals too!

    That's a sweet looking 35, congratulations! The LE ammo is very accurate in all 3 of my Marlin 35's and my T/C Contender Carbine. Dropped a few mule deer with the 35 LE ammo, it hammers them hard. No tracking needed so far, but if needed, there would be a darn good blood trail to follow. DP

    Great looking rifle right there! I think the guns from that era are some very well made pieces, very smooth operating and finished very nicely. I own 3 Marlins made in 1980 and another two made in '84 & '85 and they are all very nicely done rifles and more nicely finished than my newer Marlins. Congrats on a great find & purchase! As far as which ammo would be best in your rifle, well your rifle will tell you after buying a box of each and a nice range session, trying both!!
