    Doc - I agree on all of your points. The M08 was never chambered in .300 Savage, so yes, the .35 is the only cartridge still commercially available for good old M08. It was the best of the four that it came in.

    Trivia: Remington also made the Model 600 in .35 Rem. I was drawn in by gunzine articles and shot one mostly with light loads and revolver bullets until I got tired of plinking with it.

    The 600 was also manufactured in .350 Remington magnum... I bought one of those after shooting a whitetail buck with a cousin’s M8. It was hot stuff back in the day!

    Yes, I was somewhat tempted by one of those later, especially since it was really a 660 without vent rib and was in a Mannlicher stock with steel trigger guard, the laminated stock in the box. But I remembered how the .35 lost appeal and saved my money.

    I had one back in the day. It kicked like a mule and barked at the other end too. I ended up trading it to Wild West Guns in Anchorage.

    I sold mine to a gentleman who hot rodded those guns, ultra lightweight stocks, thin barrels, lightened receivers etc. he has a 6mm that was completed in 1985 and weighs 5# with a scope and loaded magazine.
