I bought a Marlin 336 in .35 Remington as my first centerfire rifle, in 1974. A year later I mounted a Bushnell 2.5X scope on it. That scope has lived on that rifle ever since and has accounted for its share of deer, hogs, tin cans, milk jugs, and all manner of paper targets. It's a great rifle, and my eldest son drooled over it, so I let him borrow it. It lives at his house now and his sons shoot it from time to time.
The .35 Remington kills like the hammers of hell, and I've worked up a nice handload for it using IMR 4895 and Remington 200 grain Core-Lokt bullets. It's a great cartridge in a great rifle.
