Thanks, Dinny


Any particular reason as to the 35 in a bolt gun? I have a 35 in a 336 so I'm not at all throwing shade on the round; but it does seems kinda odd to have a bolt gun chambered for the cartridge, a 70 FWT no less.

Kinda like buying a thoroughbred racehorse horse, to lead kids on at the petting zoo.


Because I can spend my money on whatever I want. I already have rifles chambered in 357 Max, 358 Win, and 35 Whelen.

Thanks, Dinny



Bout what I figured....no logical reasoning and a snarky answer.

One more for the ignore button 😎

You might need to put yourself on ignore. You crapped on Dinny's idea then took offence to his straight forward response.

Haven't yet had the chance to take larger game with one, but I have carried it while hunting elk in the timber. Someday.

Currently mine has a vintage Leupold 1-4 gloss scope that has recently gone TU, so I'm searching for a gloss replacement. Not sure what direction to go. Gloss scopes can be hard to come by these days. I've heard Leupold has been shifting towards replace instead of repair, and I really don't care to mount any current production Leupolds on it.

I have a bunch of the Buffalo Bore +p 220 grn loads for it, and my particular Marlin loves them. It actually shoots the 220 grn Speers very well at lesser velocities as well. I've found the 220 Speer to be a great bullet all around for the 35 rem; I've also used them in my BLR 358 with great results. And they're usually pretty cheap to obtain.


I've corresponded with Bear Creek, who tells me they are working on a 220 grain 35 bullet suitable for the 35 Rem. They specialize in bullets for older/obsolete guns and their coating is top notch. They also offer custom sizing. If/when I get some in hand and tested, y'all will hear about it. I don't have a scope on the old straight grip Ballard SRC, but will be able to tell if they shoot on par with Hornady's rubber-nose factory load or my Sierra 200 grain reload- both plenty accurate for 200 yard shooting.

I killed a doe with these bullets last year. MV=1100fps. She didn't run more than 30yds before expiring.

Dinny, how about some pictures of the M70 FWT in 35REM?

Winchester used to make the M70 (pre-war) in .35 Remington, so it's not unheard of. Remington has made the M30 in .35, and you could get Custom Shop Model Sevens in .35, too (not to forget the old Model 600s, as well). A good boltgun in .35 was appreciated back then, and not so long ago, either.

Kimber made a limited run of bolt action 35REMs but I have never seen one in the flesh

I have several Marlins in 35 REM. I’m sold on the caliber…Where I hunt deer, to me, it is a perfect choice.

I got a deal on a Remington model 7 in 243 and since I already have a rifle in 243, I thought I’d have a 35 Remington built on that action. I can’t see a down side to it at all. I just hope the Model 7 in 35 REM shoots as good as the Marlin 336’s I have.

Find a spare .223 Rem barrel and send it off to JES for a 35 Rem rebore. Mine shot incredibly well! I just wish the Win Model 70 I had built in 35 Rem shot the 200gr FTXs as well.

Thanks, Dinny

It's a hell of a cartridge, 220gr Speers at 2175 fps over Leverevolution powder is a real barn burner that i'd use on any game animal in the U.S. inside 200 yards, when i get these shot up, i'll go to the 180gr Speer, those bullets are harder and tougher than a whores heart.

Sounds like a good idea! I'm going to check with my gunsmith to see what he might have on hand.

With .30-30 ammo being much more available and about half the price of .35's, I sent it down the road.


That’s interesting, as I have found that the .35 gives a bit better blood trail than does my .30-30. Really doesn’t matter, as I hunt a lot with both. Perhaps it is just where I’m hitting them?
