I got to shoot a 336 so chambered yesterday. My neighbor's buddy was zeroing in his rifle for the 2012 private land rifle deer season in CT, he is hunting on my property. I was impress how well it shot, its a new gun he won in a raffle. See thru scope mounts and a well bigger scope that I would like. I was able to hit a grape fruit sized pumpkin with it never the less at almost 100 yards off hand. 200 Gr Remington RN's I think I just might have to get one now. I also said that if ever he needs to sell it, come to me first.

The .35 Remington is one of the most effective and mild mannered cartridges for hunting deer, hogs, etc.

Marlin has been the sole platform for the cartridge for many moons, not counting special runs from Remington.

The see-thru scope mounts are common but many believe they are not the best option for scope mounting.

The beauty of the .35 Remington is that the 200 grain Remington Corelokt RN is more than capable of taking enough meat to fill your freezer.

Good luck finding one for yourself.

I wholeheartedly reccomend thet you snatch one up if you get the chance. They carry wonderfully, are quick to the shoulder, and the 200 gr corelokts really perform well on almost any deer to elk sized game. I have two and will never part with either.

Mines the "A" with a 24" barrel, I hand load for it but I stuff them with the 200grn Core-Lokt's, an excellent combination!

What he said! If I plan on hunting in an area where the shot will be close, my Marlin 336 in 35 Remington will be with me. I have hunted deer since 1966 and all of the deer I have killed except for one could have been easily taken with my 35 Remington. The other one could have been taken with the 35 Remington, it just would have been a little harder to do.

What powder are you using? I have a 336-A I need to start loading for.

Try some W 748 with 200s. Work up to about 40 grs. and they will shoot as good as the factory loads. These Marlin 35s are some of the most accurate guns built with factory ammo. My 1969 Marlin is unreal at the range when I have a scope on it. Peeps sights now.

In the 336, I like 38.3 gr IMR4064. Very accurate, about 2000fps.

4895 works well also. I use it in my Rem 141.

The old 35 Rem is vastly underrated IMO. It is easily superior to the 30-30 and very close to the 375 Win in performance....

H335, 39grns, WW brass and CCI 250's
My rifles a first year for the 35 that has the "Ballard" barrel vs the "Micro grove" barrel, I usually get about 1 1/4" groups, not bad for a 62 year old rifle off the hood of the Jeep.

Its a great round. Killed three deer with a handi rifle chambered in it last year. Furthest one ran was a strictly lung and heart shot. Made it about 20 yards before he fell out. One took about 3 steps on a heart and lung shot and one hit the ground. Im a fan of the core lokts too.




Have owned a few marlins in 35 but never even hunted with one.
This is a stock off my last one. Beautiful gun!


Have since switched to an encore in 358. Hope i dont regret getting rid of the handi.
