I must move within social circles with those who are cognizant of effective ballistics, because hunters regularly tell me that their main big-game rifles are chambered in .270 Winchester.
The .35 Rem. has been chambered in a variety of rifles during the past 100-plus years. I recently found one example—a pump-action Remington Model 141 manufactured in 1949—in the back corner of a small gun shop, and its Lyman 66 aperture rear sight sealed the deal.
The NRA was founded 150 years ago "To Promote And Encourage Rifle Shooting On A Scientific Basis."
