.35 Remington is one of those popular cartridges carried by rifle owners across the world. It has gained a reputation in shooting deer sized games like hunting Wild Boar, Black Bear or Deer. In the early part of the 20th century, hunters used it to shoot bigger animals. However, it is best used as a close range brush cartridge.
.35 Remington was invented in the first decade of the 20th century. Remington was then looking for a suitable cartridge for its Model 8 semi-automatic class rifles. The .35 Remington and Model 8 were considered one of the best combinations of its time; many felt it was a combination even better than the 30-30 Winchester and Model 94.
Remington then extended its usage for its other rifle models such as 14, 760 and 600. The .35 Remington was also accepted by other manufacturers such as Savage, Standards Arm and Winchester. .35 Remington has a rimless case with a shorter shoulder, which helped it to feed in semi-automatic and lever action rifles.
The .35 Remington when loaded with a 180-grain bullet and combined with a Hogdon 335 powder gave an appreciable bullet speed of 2300 feet per second. This is a performance good enough to shoot a deer at a distance of 200 yards. For shooting Wild Boar or the Black Bear, a slightly heavier bullet like the 200-grain or 220-grain can be used. The version available to today’s shooter is the round nose 200-grain bullet, which fires at a reasonable speed of 2100 feet per second.
Marlin 336 lever gun owners use the .35 Remington, however it also goes well with Thompson Center Contender and Remington Model 7 rifles. At distances greater than 200 yards, its accuracy drops and speed drops significantly. However, if one asks any hunter from the Eastern US, he or she will surely have used a .35 Remington.
