A 35 caliber 300 Blackout ?
It is for me in Southern Michigan, or else I'd use a 444, 30-30, 30-06, 308, 303 or any of the other perfectly good cartridges that don't meet the requirements our DNR has for the "limited zone" where I hunt. I think it's funny that I can't hunt with a 35 rem, but a straight walled cartridge that does the same thing is ok. That's why I also have a 44x1.8" that equals my 444 with a 265 hornady fn.

They did not print the ballistics but it looks suspiciously like a rimless 357 Max which I have thought would be a good re-introduction. Its not made for lever rifles a the bullets are pointed. A re-introduction of the 375 Winchester would also be in order. It is offered initially in a Winchester bolt action.
Did a little more research and one states its basically a 35-223 which makes sense as it fits standard bolt faces. While they list its bullet weights up to 265 grains they seemed to be pushing light weights at 150 and 180 grains. One source said that it would give about 2000 with a 200 grain bullet. Unless you live in a state that only allows straight cases it has little to offer. As mentioned, Remington could reintroduce the 357 Max in a Marlin and rename it the 357 Marlin and have basically the same thing in a lever. Too bad the max is so dead or Henry could also chamber a rifle for it. 357 Henry? The AR's might jump on the 350?

This is the smaller counter to all the 450 Bushmaster rifles sold in the last 2 years. Ruger had the market cornered on cheap effective deer rifles when they released the American in 450. This is the modern take on 12ga vs 20ga, 45-70 vs 45,44,357 debate for deer hunters. Less recoil than a 450, nice light guns with cheap ammo. It's a straight .223 case so perfect for reloading. This is a winner.
Since Ohio opened up the Regs to allow all straight wall cartridges I have built 2 450 Bushmaster uppers for Ars and bought a Ruger in the same. They are great for deer, and I must admit I haven't taken a Marlin into the woods since. I do thoroughly enjoy hunting with an Ar15.
it looks about like a 357 max. it would be great in a lever gun,,,,,,,,,
I have never harvested an animal but I have KILLED QUITE A FEW !
I would rather have a gun in my hand than a cop on the phone,,,,,,,,,
