I have a 356 in a marlin 336ER,And I can tell you it is a great caliber.But it is kind of hard to find reloading data for.I have never seen one in an ''winnie'' as far as that goes I have only seen one in a marlin and I own it.But I wouldn't blame you if you bought the ''winchester''..You just don't see the 356 in gun shops every day.
Believe me I thought about it, but I have a 336SC in the works.....and I think I'm going to bet a savage 110 30-06 with the accutrigger. Got a deal I cant pass up. Just dont need the 356, but I figured some one here would want it.
I just purchased a .35 SC, I'm in the same boat you are in, I haven't received it but I do know it is Ballard and not tapped. Have wanted one for a long time. I believe it was made in 1950. I was told that 1950 was the first year Marlin chambered the .35, this is something that had escaped me until now, I thought Marlin chambered the .35 earlier than this. My source is reliable so I learned yet something else thanks to this board.
Hope you post your SC's specifics when it arrives...
