My "friend" has a new, unfired 760 in 35 rem he bought for $125 a few years ago. He knows how bad I want it so he won't sell it to me. He does that just to aggravate me. Its working too.
But since I found I can load a 200gr bullet to a little over 2000fps in my Marlin 44 mag it has sort of cooled my desire for a 35 remington. That a close match in power.
But if my "friend" called me today and said he would sell for $400-450 I would be all over it. Too bad its not more common and loads and brass aren't easier to find.
A village in Kenya called. They want their idiot back.
The phone has been answered and the idiot will soon be headed back to his village.
