Hello:

Sorry if this is a tired subject, however I own a Marlin 336 in 35 Remington. I've been looking for brass for reloading and am amazed it appears completely unavailable? I can find almost every other obscure caliber, but not 35 Remington. What is the problem with the 35.

Thank you

As far as finding used brass, you may want to try something that worked for me. I printed up a want ad for 35 Rem. brass and put it on the bulletin board at the local grocery store. I printed on the ad the amount I would pay for each piece. That was important as it eliminates unwanted calls plus it gives the seller an incentive to make the call.

In less than a week I received a response. Turns out the man lived about 3 miles from me and had used brass for several calibers. Said he picks up range brass around the country but did not load for the 35. I got 50 pieces of brass for half of what they are asking on Gunbroker.

You just never know!

The .35 Remington is a seasonal item. It's made in one run each year. Once it's gone, no more until next year. I just picked up 250 once fired .35 Rem brass at my local gun shop. It's still around, just scarce.

I went and bought 100 rounds of factory ammo strictly for the brass. Yeah, it was more money. But I've had to many instances w/ "once fired" brass being anything but. Once fired does not show signs of incipient case head separation. I also have 1k pieces on backorder. I'm making a lifetime purchase now since I have the money. That backorder was supposed to be in about six weeks ago :(

It can be formed from 308 but it takes multiple steps. And it's a conversion best served w/ a lathe. I'm not to keen on the drill press and file method. I have tried and it does work. It's not that long of a process Something just bothers me about it.
