35 Rem is a very underrated caliber. My dad uses it for deer, but it will take out hogs just as easy. Nice kill.

Ahh, a calico rooter! Been a long time since I seen one of them! I can almost taste the pork chops!

Good shooting and nice pig!

Congrats.

I picked up an old Marlin 336 in 35 Remington last year. It was made in 1976. Took it to GA on a pig hunt and shot a 90 pound sow. Really like the 35 Remington

Years ago I had a Marlin in 35 with a long barrel, pistol grip and 1/2 magazine. It was rusty on the outside so I cleaned it up and refinished it. The bore was bright sharp and shiny.

I killed a few mule deer with it and it was always very effective. I wish I had never sold that old rifle. It was a real good tool.
