I heard today that 35 Rem ammo was basically non existent anywhere in town or online. Sure enough, everywhere is sold out. When did this start and why? I have a Marlin lever action that was passed down in 35 Rem and about 40 rounds for it. Guess I need to hold on to them!

They may only produce it occasionally.

Some sites will let you back order and email you. I finally got some 7.7Jap brass that way.

When they finally phoned me to let me know it was in stock for a moment I forgot wanted it.

Done in a seasonal run, just like the 32-20 Winchester I cannot find.  All the raw materials  are going into making .223 and  9mm.

Only 35 rem I've seen in the last... about 10 fucking years, has been $3+ a round anyways.  Only place I've ever seen it on the shelf either had 3 inches of dust on it, or was accidentally ordered by the manager at gander mountain.


So, I reload. Or order it online.

LIke others have said calibers like that are manufactured seasonally, when there is a rush on ammo like we have had theses types of calibers get neglected.

It's never been a popular cartridge around here.  Can't remember if I've ever even seen it in a store.  In this area 30-30 fills that niche, but most people use flatter shooting calibers.

If you shoot an obsolete, boutique, or obscure caliber, and you don't reload, I have pretty much zero sympathy for ya.

Last year I found some at Wally World that was being closed out. $5 a box!!! They only had five, but I bought 'em all.

I sold my Marlin lever gun, but have since picked up a scoped Remington Model 8.

It's pretty much only in demand prior to hunting season (it's not a big blasting / target cartridge).  Reload!

I got an old-ish marlin in .35 a couple of months ago, picked up 3 boxes, and haven't seen any since! My FIL picked up some dies, brass and bullets and I will be reloading it.

Hornady lists it as 'seasonal'

So, if they don't have... it's gone for now.

I have an old Marlin in .35 Remington that I haven't shot.  I guess if there's no ammo, I probably never will.

I Bought me a 336 in 35 Remington a while back and didn't think ammo or brass would be too difficult to find. After searching the entire internet and finding nothing I got lucky and found 3 boxes of leverevolution at the local store for $29.99. They removed the label but a few weeks later there were three more so I bought them. I stopped at a store about an hour away and they had 20 or so boxes so I bought two more.Now the local store has three more of the hornady. I have the stuff to reload and hate buying factory ammo but want to make sure I have enough brass so I may buy a few more in case it gets discontinued. It's one of my favorite guns to shoot

I'm betting one of the overseas manufacturers will pick it up, a lot like they  started making hunting loads in .303Brit and 8mm Mauser. Someone will always fill in a gap the big manufacturers neglect.

I see it around here.  I see enough of it that I've been trying to score a .35 lever lately, if I can find one at a good price.

OP, are you hard up enough that you want me to take notes on what type my local store has for you?

Yup. My .35 is a beast. Perfect round for thick NH woods.

Just saw some on the shelf at the Kittery Trading Post in Maine last weekend.

Fudds found out last year when 30-30, 35Rem, and other similar calibers started getting the Kneckbeard treatment and the local wally world shelves chock full of cheap priced ammo were empty.

The days of only having one box laying around for deer season (or two or three)  like the old timers here were used to getting away with are long gone. Now they are hoarding if they are not reloading.

It is a great round and used here in Maine quite a bit for deer and bear. The only .35 Rem ammo I can find up here is LeveRevolution. It is really the cheapest option.

I think that round should have wider acceptance, but if you are looking at a 30-30 rifle and a 35 Rem, most people are going to get the 30-30.
They are missing out. The round hits like a hammer.

Agreed.  I liked the Core Lokt RNSP stuff much more than the LE.  I figure if you're going to use a round like the 35 in the thick woods, the advantages of LE quickly disappear.  The 35 Remington is the perfect round for the north woods.  I should put on cleats and kick myself in the nuts for selling my 336.

I've never understood why .35/9mm rifle rounds aren't more popular.  For the kind of hunting most people do they have a lot to recommend them.

.32, .35. .351 and .401 Winchester Self-Loading Rifle have gone the way of the dodo bird, along with .25, 30 and .32 Remington.



Winchester Model 1905s, 1907s and 1910s are out there.  Ammo isn't.



Except for Buffaalo Arms (and it is pricey when they have it).  Even brass is expensive.

I don't have any "before pictures". It was an honest example of a 1908 Model 8, with about 60% finish and about 20 years of congealed 'oil' that had built up as it sat in a closet in Maine.



I had to detail disassemble (and its neither intuitive or simple) and get all the semi-sold gunk out of it (except the barrel jacket, because I don't have the spanner and I'm a coward).



Then I had to get the 'oil' out of the stock where it had run down while sitting in the closet, replace the butt plate, and reassemble (correctly, without getting sliced to ribbons by the sharply milled receiver that's a hug chunk of steel with no real empty space in it).



I finished it with Brownell's baking lacquer because it had no collector value - and the wood got tung oil.



I found a period Marble's tang sight (but haven't found the period after-market barrel jacket band sling swivel yet).



Oh, yeah - and .35 Remington stripper clips (the Model 8 properly loads from stripper clips into the fixed magazine, except for the very, very, very rare Police Equipment Co. modified detachable magazine modified version, which has a stupid heavy single stack magazine - sold one per rifle in the 1930s).

When I was a kid all the ads stated a choice between 30/30 or .35 .  It seems like somewhere in the 1990s it quit.  Hell even 30/30 ammo can be hard to find here.  Like not being able to buy a loaf of bread.
