Kimber, Are You Listening?

One of the most overlooked centerfire big game cartridges is the .35 Remington. It is deer capable out to 150 yards or so and if handloaded in a modern bolt action it is a true 250 yard cartridge. I know, I’ve had two bolt-action .35 Remingtons and they are infinitely more versatile than a .358 Winchester. This is because factory .35 Remington ammo is great for woods hunting, kids and others that are recoil sensitive and, with handloads a 200 grain bullet at around 2400 fps is possible. Though the case rim is slightly smaller, it will still work in any action for a .308 sized case.

Hey Kimber, how bout an 84 in .35 Remington?
