I was wondering what opinions people had on what game this is good for.

How does it compare to, say, 308?

Muzzle energy is about the same as a 30-30, says my charts, but momentum would definitely be higher.

The .35 Remington is popular in the Northeast where a deer hunter might stumble onto a bear - both seasons run together up here. The heavier .35 bullet is better at anchoring a black bear, although plenty bears are killed every year with the .30-30 and with shotguns loaded with slugs.

At the close ranges in the wooded Northeast you really don't need a 300 yd. round like the .308. Tree stands are common and most shots are under 100 yards.

It is very popular in my native Upstate New York. It seems to hit harder than a 30-30. Just food for thought I bring my Marlin 45-70 with me when I hunt up there, some of the bears can get large.

I have a 35Rem in a Contender. It is great for shooting steel at 200yds. You can load spitzer projectiles in the single shot, which gives a better selection. Many firearm magazines have blessed the cartridge for short range, 200 yds, hunting. Although I have not use it for deer hunting, many friends swear by it. It virtually replaced the 357 Herret in a Contender.
