    I don't see many mentions of the Marlin 35rem. lever action. Is this not one of many prefered rifles for hunting?.... Regards..........Tom H

    They are very popular around the southeast for hog and bear. I see one or two a month pop up in the local trader paper. Price range is usually $225 to $300.

    I had one for a few years for deer, enjoyed the decent recoil for a 35cal. But then chanced upon a mint Marlin in 375Win and fell in love. It replaced the 35.

    I inherited mine from my father. I've had it for about twenty years and would never part with it. Not only for sentimental reasons, but it is one heck of a rifle. Mine has a microgrooved barrel (I requested info about this on a previous thread earlier today) and is very accurate. Plus I love the power. If I could only have one firearm that I presently own. This would be my keeper. I seem to have only to choices in ammo though. So I've stocked up to a hundred rounds at all times.

    I finally broke down and bought one at a recent gun show. I wish I had done it years earlier now. The one I found is a 1957 vintage, straight stock carbine. With factory Remington 200 Core_Lokt, it shoots quite well. I am taking it hunting up in the Osceola National Forest next week. I just changed the scope on it, from the one pictured, to a vintage El Paso Weaver V4.5.

    Funny you should ask - I took mine to the range this afternoon. :D

    What's not to love? Large diameter relatively heavy (180gr-220gr) bullets moving at moderate velocities makes for some serious smackdown inside of 200 yards. It definitely makes big holes in anything it hits...

    The only drawback is that it runs out of steam pretty fast. Knowing the difference between 200 yards and 235 yards can make the difference between a solid killing shot and a miss, or worse.

    Where I hunt, I pretty much have lased most all major landmarks and can pretty accurately tell what's inside of 200 yards or not. Woe be unto any piggie or deer that I spot inside that range.

    Nice gun Mannlicher:) The 200 grain Remington Corloktd does as good as anything I have been able to load my rifles. I DO heat up the bolt guns a bit though:evil:

    The fun of the 35 really starts with 140 and 160g bullets for coyote and other varmints. And +1 for the Rem 200s. I bought a box of the Hornady LeverEvolution 200s, but Have not made it to the range to check them out.
