Has anyone shot this ammo from Remington yet? My 1971 Marlin loves it. It groups close to half an inch at 50 yards. I have a 2-7x33 VX1 scope on the gun, and I left it zero'd dead on at 50 yards. I plugged it into Nikon's spot on program, and it says only 5 inches low at 200 yards and still 800 ft-lbs of energy. 

I didn't have my Leverevolution with me, but had some winchester gray box 150's, and they didn't shoot anywhere close to the hog hammers. 

Supposed to be a low flash propellant too, which I think would be good for deer hunting, which is what I am going to use it for. 

There are both groups I shot with it. Off a sandbag with stock heavy trigger. Figure in the woods, this would be deer death!!

sweet.  I love leverguns. 
Lifetime warranty and excellent customer service don't mean a thing when your gun fails during a zombie attack.

When you are dead, you don't know you are dead.It is difficult only for others.

It is the same when you are stupid.

I was surprised how well it shot. The trigger is way to heavy. I may have to get that seen about.

 I could h have bought a Marlin lever gun in my late teens for 105 dollars and it had a 25 dollar rebate. My dad wouldn't buy it for me, even though I had the money at home. I was so pissed. But I would have probably put some of those see through rings and a 4x tasco on it. And then thought I was somebody. 

I hope to kill a deer or two with it this season. 

And I love leverguns too. 

Can you find ammo easily for the 35 Remington?

Sweet shooting 30-30 Excellent. Lever guns defeated Custer at the Little Big Horn. They were the AK or AR of their day.   
It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed. TR

The fact that Custer wore an Arrow shirt didn’t help!😂
