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...
