.35 Remington

    Introduced in 1908, the .35 Remington was one of the first cartridges designed specifically for autoloading rifles. Pawpaw writes about his Marlin 336 chambered in .35 Rem …

    Then, one day when I was in college I was walking through a hardware store and saw a Marlin 336 in the rack. I asked to look at it and saw that it was chambered in .35 Remington. The price tag, new in box, was $87.50, still more than I could afford, but the counterguy told me that they had a layaway plan. So, I plunked down $10.00 to hold it, and started saving my pennies to buy the rifle. In ninety days it was mine, paid in full, and I realized I didn’t have enough hard cash to afford ammo, so I waited another 30 days to afford $8.00 for a box of Remington ammo.
