Ammo for the 35 Rem like most everything else these days seems to be in pretty short supply. Adding the caveat of "lead-free" to the mix in my opinion just feeds into that perfect storm designed to make it all the more difficult for us to use and shoot the firearms we have. I don`t know of any company that loads lead-free 35 Rem ammunition commercially. Perhaps a few of the custom loaders do. Obtaining ammo for our 35`s has been hard even before the CCP inspired panic.If you are not a reloader I`m afraid it is going to get even harder. If you do reload or have a friend that will oblige you there are lead-free bullets out there but most seem to be out of stock,backordered or not available on-line. One outfit,Maker Bullets ,has 200gr solid copper bullets in stock. They ain`t giving em away @ $42.00 for 50 +shipping but it is what it is. You can contact them @ https://www.makerbullets.com/proddetail ... =358200LVR Good luck !!

Thanks for the reply. The lead free thing is another way to limit firearms.

Just the tip of the Iceberg. The last lead smelter in this country closed in 2013. Competition for lead products with 90% going to battery production had the bonus benefit for the EPA of limiting production of ammunition and attendant price increase. Bought a battery for your car lately? Ammo not the only item where the price has zoomed up. Surprise Surprise guess who benefits. Give you a hint....begins with "C" and ends with an "A".
