This is an old rifle, about 50yo. Seller sent me this pic,

So, I'm curious about appropriate pressure levels for the chamber and what kind of performance I dare squeeze out of this old beauty. Any thoughts on this?

I'm ordering a rcbs 200grn mold this week for my plinking needs and a couple of bags of Remington's 200grns for my hunting needs.

There is no joy, expect fatherhood :), that beats buying a new rifle and tooling up for it!

First off, congrats on the new (to you) 35! It's a great caliber and you can really have some fun with the reloads. Secondly, where on earth are you finding the Remington 200 grain core-locts? I haven't seen those available anywhere for about a year now...

Is that a 336A? What's the date of birth? Is it a Microgroove barrel?

Either way, it's a beauty. I love my 35's !

Regards,

B

I sure wish I could find one like that. Great looking rifle. I like the forearm end cap and pistol grip of the "A" model.

Thanks!

Swedish retailer, guess they haven't run out here yet..

If they don't have a steady supply I'll just hunt with boolits instead.
Buy them all!

Remington is not selling the .35 caliber Core-Lokts as components any longer...

ADDING:

OOPS!

Darn nice gun!

Not sure, I'll have to wait a couple of weeks before all papers are done.

It's not a micro groove, but that's about all I know :)

Midway USA had Reminging .35 200gr round nose in late December and Graf's had the Rem 200 gr RN in February but they all "sold"" out in a week.

Nice rifle snag....

That's a nice looking 336A you found there. It's not really considered an "antique" rifle and any loads you find in a published reloading manual should be fine in it. Just follow the guideline and start at the low end.

I bet that 35 destroyed that fox on the other side!!! looks like a nice rifle, odd seeing the long barrel to me but I haven't seen many A models.

Congrats on your 336A! I have been surprised by the number of Marlins that have been imported to various countries in Europe! Your 35 can safely be loaded to the same pressure the 30-30 can, this is a bit more than most reloading info uses here in the states, not sure about info used in your country. I think I see Moose roast in your future. DP
