Picked up a used, but super clean G2 Contender in .35 Remington today from a private seller. It cam equipped with a Redfield 2-6x.

Although I would have preferred something in a caliber I had (.223, .357 or .41 Mags) This might be very entertaining....we'll see how I like it. I've shot a few in the past, the largest being .308 Win and .460 S&W, both in 14 barrels. The .460 was not fun, but I really like the way the .308 ran. I'm guessing the heavier, but slower bullet will be similar in recoil. If not, there is always some trading options out there.

...and now I have my 10" .41 Mag barrel. My single screw forearm is in route, so here is it for now with my Super 14 furniture.



Might look in to a small rifle barrel down the road. Mostly for the ability to do more rest shooting with less abuse than the .35 Rem put out. But, that all depends on how the round handles once I start reloading for it.

Not many of us have the .41 Mag. & .35 Rem. Mine is the 10'' in .41,, 14'' in .35 ^^^^^ Also got a 45-70 Gov. in Hunter's Bbl. 12'' Good luck using your pistol. Haven't loaded for the .35 in a while , but it likes H 332 powder and 200 gr. pills.

I put some of the Hornady LeveRevolution through the Chrony yesterday....1,950 FPS. :blink:

My hand load .41 Mag (200gr XTP, 17.5gr 2400) ran at over 1,550! That's 300fps faster than out of my 6.5" Blackhawk.
