Seeing as the .35-cal bullet had no competition from other
manufacturers at the time, it quickly prospered among backwoods hunters. In
1936, Remington began producing the Model 81 rifle to replace the Model 8. To
increase its popularity, Remington produced an advertisement showing the
ability of the
.35 Rem to penetrate a 5/16” steel plate; the ad compared it
.30-30 from Winchester, which was unable to penetrate the plate.
The downfall with the .35 Rem, when used with the original ball
bullet, is its inability to reach long distances. This is, however, perfect for
those hunters in dense wooded areas, who have to trust their round to
accurately penetrate through small brush and thickets.
Each box contains 25 once fired brass shell casings. Headstamps are mixed. This is unprocessed brass sourced from commercial shooting ranges. The casings have been washed and polished, but not resized and may still contain the spent primer. It is recommended that all brass be inspected prior to being reloaded and fired.
