.30-30 comparison to .35 Remington

Postby legacy38 » Sun Jul 04, 2004 11:04 pm

Somebody on the forum mentioned the .35 Remington round the other day. My ex-BIL had a Marlin 336 in .35 Remington, which I shot a few times at targets, but other than that I have no experience with the round. How does it compare to the .30-30? Are they pretty much the same thing with the .35 just being slightly larger in diameter?

Here ya go, straight from the Remington website. The yellow bar is the .35 Remington, the blue bar is the 30-30. Bullet weights for both are 150 gr. So it seems that the .35 Remington is a might slower, but with a bigger diameter. Link to comparison charts.

My uncle has a Marlin 336 in .35 Remington, and says it's his favorite deer round. Very accurate, less recoil, and a bigger hole.

Disregarding that .30-30 is more readily available than .35 Remington, I'd go with the .35 Remington. I've always been a firm believer in bigger, heavier boolits, and that's what gives the .35 the edge in my book. I normally shoot a cast RN GC weighing in at about 210 grains.

Thanks for the responses. I was asking more just for the pure knowledge off it all than for purchasing considerations. I currently have a .30-30 (Marlin 336) that I have seldomly shot since I bought it over 15 years ago.

I'm reading my latest (Aug 2004) issue of Shooting Times. The last section in the magazine is "Gun Smoke" by Sheriff Jim Wilson. He's addressing unusual guns used by the Texas Rangers in this issue.

At the end of the article is a short blurb about how Frank Hamer used his Remington Model 8 .35 Remington auto-loading rifle in the shootout with Bonnie & Clyde! It worked. :lol:

I'd say so. They fairly well shot them to pieces.

30-30 vs 35

Postby StarMentor » Sun Jul 25, 2004 12:27 am

The 30-30 was sold everywhere as a favored deer weapon in the last century and the .35 was favored as a heavier duty brush busting gun in the northern and especially the north eastern states for bagging your deer in heavy brush.

Welcome to the board, StarMentor, your resumé looks quite impressive!
