[Return to Topics]

Have any one ever heard of a .35cal center fire gun?
Toni found a loaded shell out by the laundry building this morning along with a .22cal rim fire.
Thank you

Looking for ammo for S&W 1913 35 cal auto, any amount.

Try 2nd ammenment in Arizona for manufactured ammo.
The cases are made out of 32-20 cases and loaded with a lead .308 bullet.
Now for the hard part the last time I checked the per box was $75-$85
The ammo does function my 35 S$W auto

Check the back of the cartridge. The writing on it will tell you what it is. Most likely it is a .35 Remington. Looks similar to a .30-.30. Marlin Firearms made a lever action rifle for it. That is fairly common. It is a smokeless powder round.

by my info the tc shell that someone was talking about was a 30/30 shell cut and necked.
35 caliber rifle, owned by grandma, made by Richard & Richard in England for only a few years 1903 to 1905, octogon barrel lever action, barrel is 32 inches longs, weighs 13 pounds. Considered a light saddle gun, Grandma still has two boxes of shells.

FOUND IT!    Posted 08-02-2002 at 14:23:57       [Reply]  [Send Email]
I was so close yet so far...

It was NOT a Colt ACP round.
It is a S&W Auto CTG cartridge.

Smith and Wesson made this gun from 1913 to 1921.
The pistol has become known as the Model 1913.
Ammo is next to imposible to find.
If you want to sell that to a collecter, it would probably be worth a few bucks (or more)...

Thanks...This was fun!

Oops Again!    Posted 08-02-2002 at 14:42:46       [Reply]  [Send Email]
I did LOL

Thanks, I appreciate all of your help. I found a few when I was outside looking around the ground by the wash building. I look up and I look down for snakes but you never know what you will find.

It is funny, every morning when I go down to the barns I always check the ground because it seems there is either glass, pottery, wire, etc. that wasn't there the day before and it worries me that the critters might hurt themselves. Dennis keeps telling me it pushes up from the ground??!! All I know it didn't do that in the city but than nothing pushes up from ceement!!

The way you asked the initial question I was sure that you were really interested in the cartridge and its history!

That'll teach me.

Sorry for getting a bit more techy than you wanted, but it is a hobby for me.

As for what you are finding 'coming up'...
Get used to it LOL!
My father has owned a deer camp that was built on top of the old Walden, Vermont dump for more than 20 years now, and you should see the 'new' stuff that shows up every year ;-)

Have a Great Evening!

I was really interested in the cartridge and it's history.
Not too much Tech stuff for me. I enjoy learning from experts.
Thanks again for taking your time and trouble finding it and posting it.
I think we will put it under the glass top of the coffee table where we keep odd stuff that we talk about to friends.
Thanks again.

Pretty sure that is a .35 ACP.

I can check with my Dad and get back to you later as I think he has a few...

i had a 35 remington woodsmaster semi automatic
weight of the rifle after carring it through the
woods was around 4 ton but it would knock down
any brush between you and your deer i was going to drill a hole in the stock and install an axle
and a pair of wheels to drag it but i sold it to a younger man

There are also modern centerfire rifles chambered in .35 Whelen

Salmoneye    Posted 08-02-2002 at 13:27:14       [Reply]  [Send Email]
Dang...forgot that Wildcat went production and you can buy factory ammo with that on the headstamp.

I left out stuff like the .357 Herrett and other esoterics I knew of too.
I still think that this must be a handgun cartridge, but maybe I am just reading too much into the description...or lack thereof...

I think what Nathan (GA) is talking about is a .35 Remington calibre rifle. That cartridge was originally designed for and chambered in the Remington Model 8 in 1906. The cartridge has been kept alive and 'popularized' by Marlin in their 336C lever rifle much used in brush country for its ability to penetrate dense undergrowth.
Also has been helped along in recent years as a single shot handgun round in the Thompson Center Contender. A little wussy for a handcannon round IMHO ;-)

Now...If you are talking handgun ammo...

I think that back in the early 1900's there was a calibre known as .35 ACP (Automatic Colt Pistol).

Pretty much obsolete and was suplanted by the .32 ACP. There is also a .25 ACP, .45 ACP, and several wildcats and production rounds based on these cases. Unsure, but I think there was a .38 ACP (not the current .380 Auto) at one time too.

Can you please tell me more about this cartridge such as size and length. A micrometer reading would be greatly appreciated...

Nathan(GA)    Posted 08-02-2002 at 13:18:11       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yeah, I think his may have been a Marlin. That was about 20+ years ago. It looked like the 336. Pretty good kick to it.

Salmoneye    Posted 08-02-2002 at 13:30:59       [Reply]  [Send Email]
My Dad still has the first rifle he ever bought and it was a 336C.
I used it for years as a kid.
Dang heavy to lug all day long especially with 7 rounds of .35 Remington with 200 grain round nose cartridges in there...


Jerry    Posted 12-08-2004 at 04:22:52       [Reply]  [Send Email]
I have a .35 cal Marlin lever action, purchased it in the 50s used it twice, any idea what this rifle is worth?

Ludwig    Posted 08-02-2002 at 11:35:06       [Reply]  [No Email]
If its .35 Rem you won't need a mic reading, its a big ole thing!
Dad's got a .35 Rem beautiful little rifle when you're in the bushes.

Salmoneye    Posted 08-02-2002 at 13:29:01       [Reply]  [Send Email]
If it is a .35 Remington it will say .35 REM on the headstamp.

And yes...They make a .30-30 look kinda small...

Nathan(GA)    Posted 08-02-2002 at 09:51:53       [Reply]  [No Email]
Yeah, my cousin used to hunt deer with a .35 rifle.

Just wanted to throw in a bit of useless trivia knowledge(Which I did NOT fact check) I believe that some of the Texas Rangers that killed Bonnie & Clyde were armed with the Rem model 8's SE mentioned

Joe Durning    Posted 11-14-2004 at 20:03:20       [Reply]  [Send Email]
Say hey,

Anybody know where I might purchase some centerfire ammo for an old Remington Model 8 semi-auto rifle in .32 caliber? I know that the .35 cal. version is more common, but I've got the obsolete .32 caliber. Any leads on a dealer for the obscure ammo would be greatly appreciated.

Kind regards, Joe D. in Massachusetts
