New to me .... Remington Model 141 in 35 Remington.

I've been looking for one of these for a while, so jumped when this one came up at Faulkner's in McAdam.

They don't make em like this anymore. All original, except the Lyman tang sight, which is a big bonus in my eyes. No extra holes, cracks, or issues. Just gathering loading items now, so haven't tried it yet. I think 200gr RNs will work just fine.

It doesn't get any more FUDD than this! :)

I bet it points really well. One of the few Remingtons I would like to own, I'd love a .25 but ammo is scarce. The .35 is really the only way to go these days.

I may be wrong, but I think the 141s were only offered in 30Rem, 32Rem and 35Rem. The 30Rem would be a good one as well if brass could be found or reformed.

Really, that rifle is a true flashback to Remington's glory days... I had a bushmaster pump 22 that wasn't near as old as that... what always stands out IMOP on the old Rems is the site configurations.... they used to take a lot of time just laying out their sites for their factory rifles....

I need to learn reloading so I can look at some of these classics as viable....

10-4 on the loading learning. It's well worth the effort. I'd never go back to shooting factory.

It's biting the bullet and investing in the gear that stops me... evry time i get the cash stashed away I end up buying a gun with it....lol

Hint hint, buy it a piece at a time.
A kit is a good way to get started, but no kit
contains the tools you will end up using.
Almost every reload bench is a Rainbow Coalition
of different manufacturers' equipment, so research
what you want, and get the best you can afford.

Start off with a manual. A bit of education will really
help you understand what you will want or need.

Apparently a very few 141R's were made in .25. The .30 is probably the easiest to to form.

From what?
