When I was in high school an older neighbor (about 45) loaned me his Browning autoloader in 35 Remington. It was a sweet shooting cartridge. I don't remember the model but the barrel recoiled with the bolt for a short distance.I think for my next lever gun, I may get the 96/44.... but I still got a hankerin for another Marlin 336, in .35 Remington. I already got a Glenfield 30A, in 30-30 and my son has his camo'd 336, 30-30 too... but there is just something about that .35 Rem I like.
Then there is the 45-70, 45-90 and .405 Win ah...... I better stop there seems to be no cure for "Levergunitus"
