cartridges for a Marlin 336


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I have been thinking about getting a marlin 33c chambered for .35 remington cartridges. I know very little about rifles and their cartridges( Im more of a shotgun person). The question I have : for the Marlin 336 chambered for a .35 remington- can either a .35 remington magnun or a .35 remington Whalen cartrighe be used in that gun??

Thanks RMR

Unless you really know what you're doing, such as with wildcat cartridges and rechambered barrels, you ONLY load what is stamped on the barrel! The Marlin 336 action is not built for the higher pressures of the 350RM or Whelen rounds. In fact, it is limited to fairly mild rounds like the 30/30, 35 Remington and certain pistol rounds.

Now, if you want to get one of the newer Marlins in 308 or 338 Marlin Express, you start to have a more powerful rifle. Outside of a Winchester '71 in 348Win, the 338MX is about the most powerful, long-range option available, particularly if you use the factory Hornady LeverEvolution ammo with the FTX bullet. Be prepared to search high n' low for a 338MX and pay fair value for it. Also, let it be known that this round already appears headed for obsolescence.

Go to the Marlin Owners forums. Start here:

336

Snoop around on the other forums and consider reading some of the Stickies. You will get all your questions answered by the friendly folks on MO.

That said, yes Marlin makes leverguns for .35 Rem. Yes it is a great hunting cartridge. I have one and have taken antelope and mule deer with it. No, you cannot fire any other cartridge in a 35 Rem. Marlin.

Factory ammo is generally available in 200 gr. bullets. Remington makes some with 180 gr. bullets but it is not as widely distributed. Hornady offers some great ammo in the LEVERevolution series although it is a little more expensive (but worth it if you don't reload). Start with factory ammo with 200 gr. bullet.
