we did a lot of drives , put a lot of meat in the freezer , we were restricted to shotguns or the 35 might well have been used, before the restriction 32win spl was a favorite of some in the family if you could shoot a slug accurate to 75 yards there was deer hanging by sundown

when my son started hunting I spent a bunch of time getting him to be fast and accurate enough.

3-4 targets with numbers set at different distances , walk slowly down the line of targets at 25, 40 , 55 75 yards approximately and call out a number he had to hit he paper plate with that number with a slug he had 5-6 seconds to shoot or I would call no deer , he disliked this drill , but when he shot his first deer at 12 he understood , nice doe ran right out of the junipers saw him and froze about 25 yards , he busted the shoulder before she could decide which way she wanted to run

it is about learning to be smooth good muscle memory , eye on target , gun comes to shoulder so your never take your eye off the target when the sights are on squeeze

shooting trap is good practice you start with your gun safety on down at your waist or low ready so your practicing getting the gun to the shoulder.

probably wasn't 4 seconds from the time he saw her head hopping over junipers till she stopped just out of the junipers and was down

Mine is a Marlin 336ER it came factory with Ballard rifling (although the barrel says micro groove) It shoots cast like a dream.

I guess I always thought of 356 as 358 in a rimmed package

the 307 to the 308

I am sort of surprised to see one in a 336 action

but I realized the 307 and 356 are loaded to lesser pressure than 308 and 358 I suppose because of the guns they chambered them in

Thatís right, they fall in between the 35 Rem and the 358 Win in performance. I had all three of those calibers and kept the 356 win because it is a little odd and fun to shoot.
Brass is a little hard to find but I form my brass from 444 Marlin.

When most gunsmithing students were building 338 WinMags I figured if I was burning that much powder I will throw more lead.
Soooooooo I built a 358 Norma Mag.

I got this Remington 7600 35 Whelen from Dad when he passed. Got his Marlin 336 35 Remington to. He was a 35 cal. fan.

I had a Rem 7600 in .35 Whelen. Love the cartridge but hated the rifle. Sold it.

I decided I have no use for pump rifles. I don't like the wobble induced by the forearm slide. Can't rest it on anything and get a firm fix on the target.

Currently looking for a .35 Whelen in a good bolt gun. Also would like to get an old Browning auto, maybe a Grade III or IV.

I agree with you Jim. I don't care much for the pump myself. A bolt action would be much better in that caliber.

Great thread. My first deer rifle was a 336 in 35 rem bought at Bills house of guns near Medford. Anyone here remember it?

I no longer own that rifle but I sure wish I did. I do, however, own a contender with a 35 rem barrel and a Burris 2x7 scope.

I believe Bills House Of Guns was on Hwy 17 Northeast of Merrill. Bought a 22 revolver called a Buffalo Scout as a trapping gun Been out of business for years. Think he got caught selling guns in the wrong places.

I think the pump lends it's self better to unsupported shooting often fast and close like standing off a deer drive where most of what your shooting are runners.


the issue is there are just not a lot of 35's made and Donor rifles for a re-barrel aren't as cheap and plentiful as they once were.

Good comparison.

My first .35 was the Marlin 336, however, my father converted me to the Remington 141 and it's predacesser. Model 14. Beautiful guns!

The 35 has always been a game stopper. Hornady leverevolution bullets make a great round even better.

I actually built a 35 for an Encore. Took a 375 Rem ultra and necked it down to 35. It will kill pretty much anything. So proud of it's performance that I put a 5.5-22X56mm NightForce on it. Tack driver to way out there. Pushing a 225 Barnes at 3500.
