    Where has all of the 25-35 Winchester ammo gone? Is it that popular?

    Just what is it?

    I just looked it up in Wiki. It is a medium-powered rifle cartridge.

    I have it all. Goes with the half dozen .25-35 rifles I own. Also have the dies, a pile of brass, and hundreds of bullets. Shot my first deer with a .25-35 in a Winchester carbine in 1966.
    The .25-35's look nice right next to the .219 Zipper.

    What a rich gun culture we have here in the USA, despite who we elect as POTUS.

    The .25-35 killed one of the largest Grizzly Bears ever found in the continental US.

    For that reason alone, a Winchester 94 in .25-35 is on my "must-own" list!

    The ammo seems to be unavailable at the moment; just wondered if anybody knew where it was in stock.

    This is a cartridge that would definatly be a good one to setup to reload for. The ammo companies make runs once in a blue moon.

    Good idea. The article didn't say if the big bear charged the shooter of not.

    I shoot 25-35. I would not use against a grizzly even out of something belt fed. It is a good cartridge to reload. Its ineffeciency makes it interesting, that along with the accuracy.
