The.35 Remington is the only remaining cartridge from Remington’s lineup of medium-power rimless cartridges still in commercial production. Introduced in 1906, it was originally chambered for the Remington Model 8 semi-automatic rifle in 1908.
The .35 Remington is one of a family of cartridges that were designed for the Remington Model 8 semi-automatic rifle released in 1908. The .25, .30, .32 Remington cartridges were loosely based on a rimless version of the .30-30 Winchester while the .35 Remington was based on a rimless version of the slightly wider bodied .30-40 Krag. The case body is similar to, but slightly narrower and shorter than the modern day .308 Winchester case.
