The .35 Remington is also known as 9x49mm Browning, 9mm Don Gonzalo, and 8.9x49mm. It was introduced in 1906, two years before the semi-automatic rifle it was designed for – Remington Model 8. Three other medium-power rimless cartridges were offered at the time, but .35 Remington is the only from this line-up that is still commercially produced. It is an effective “woods round” suitable for hunting medium and large game, and it works best for short to medium ranges. Learn more about 35 Remington
