I have a Remington 760 Gamemaster in .35 Remington and i can't find a magazine for it, and i was wondering can i use a 760 Short action or a 760 Long action magazine for it?

I only have the original mag for it and just incase it breaks or something i would like to have a extra.

A 308 magazine should work fine.
+1. I think it will, as well. They are both rimless and have very similar contours/sizes. In this picture, the .35 Rem is on the left and the .358 win is in the middle.

760 action

As near as I can tell there isn't a long or short action for the 760. The difference in the magazine is a small block in the back to take up the slack for the shorter cases in the clip. The block in the back keeps the casing farther forward to improve feeding.

I used a magazine in my 308 760 which is marked 30-06 because of the way I seat the bullets so far out because of the long throat in mine.

The 760 mags in .35 Rem and .300 Savage are unique in that the have a block in the front of the magazine too ! the front block pushes the short rounds upwards onto the feed ramp before they leave the mag . They are very hard to find these days .

Now this is good information. I seldom see any .35 caliber 760s except for the occaisional .35 W.

I have one in .308 that my dad used when he was still deer hunting. It sits in the safe for the most part and only gets as a loaner. While you are ordering parts, get an extra firing pin. I've had mine shatteedr into about five pieces. I've been told it's not uncommon for this model to do so.

Not intending to hijack here. I had an old M760 in .35 from the first year of manufacture, 1952. The gun was mint and I found it actually also liked the FTX/LeverEvolution load too. It would shoot 1.5" groups with that load. It was too nice for me to want to hunt with, so I sold it to someone who wanted it for just that reason.

Mine came drilled and tapped.
It might have come to you that way , but it didn't leave the factory drilled and tapped ! I believe they started tapping them in 1955 . I have two 54s , a .300 Sav. and a 35 Rem. that aren't tapped .
