    Thinking about getting the 336 with safty in 35 for 350.

    Already have one in 30-30 but kinda want the 35.

    I dont see any negatives on having a 35 Rem. I may have a 200 yd shot max on deer and pigs. Will the 25 do 200?

    If you can see open sights to hit at 200 yards, the .35 Remington will do as well or better then the 30-30 at that range.

    There is not much differance in the Point Blank range of the two.
    .35 Rem 150 grain
    2.27 high at 100 yards.
    zero at 160.
    5" low at 187.

    .35 Rem 200 grain
    2.84" high at 100 yards.
    Zero at 150.
    5" low at 175.

    30-30 150 grain
    2.37 high at 100.
    zero at 170.
    5" low at 198.

    the 35rem is an exelent cartridge, never used one in a 336, i got my uncles old remington 14 a couple years ago and it shoots great, the 35 will make a clean killat 200 yards with open sights, the only possible down side is ammo availibility if you dont reload, its never been as popular as the 30-30, but its popular enough to out live the rest of the remington rimless line of cartridges

    I too have a .35 in a Remington pump, and have had a couple 30-30s before I knew better. You'll throw rocks at the 30-30 after you start using a .35.

    Thanks Does 350 sound about right for a plain 336. Guy said only had a couple boxes fired out of it. Gun looks clean and functions.

    I bought a 1973 mfg (pre-safety) 336 in 35 Remington in pretty good shape (stock-dings, minimal bluing-wear, no rust) with a Bushnell Sportview Scope on it from a local pawnshop last October for $230. It's a great classic rifle with an effective improvement over the 30-30 version. Around here, they're "sleepers", move slow off the store-racks, and sell pretty cheap for just that reason.

    I can't think of any downside to owning one, other than 30-30 ammo is easier to find in a hardware store. .35 Rem ammo is plentiful and cheap enough online, however.

    I would say that $350 isn't too far off. There's a couple 336 in 35 Rem on gunbroker.com with bids under $300 right now, but are probably more used than the one that you're looking at.
    It won't hurt to dicker.

    That sounds OK, Teacher. I was looking for them at the last gunshow I attended this spring and they were running around $450 as I recall.

    The .35 Rem. is quite a deer thumper. I've taken a few with a .35 Rem. Contender handgun using a 200 gr. roundnose. They don't go far after getting hit with that. The rifle should be able to turn up better velocities than the Contender, so it should do even better.
