Hey Jack,I think it’s too late! Congrats on a great find. The 35 is definitely taking over as the king in M8/81s. If you need any advice about hunting or reloading this caliber,send me an email.

So maybe it was discontinued between 1927 and 1932. I’m sure coyote hunters loved that round. However it must not have sold very well.

Sir, Be sure to look at the juncture between the barrel jacket extension and the barrel jacket. If it’s been repaired incorrectly, that may be your problem. Look for signs of welding/ braising, or soldering. This was sometimes done by people who didn’t know what else to do.
