30-30

  1. Rifles Misc
    I figured it was about time I tried a long distance 30-30 shot with my relatively new peep sight. I was thinking it was further than it was when I was setting the target up. I also thought I missed by more than I did at first, so I adjusted down too much for the second shot. Viewing the shot...

    My sons Marlin 336 30-30 started having some problems this weekend - the action is easy for a couple of cycles, and then its really hard. The action is so hard to work, that it feels like something is going to break. We were shooting factory loaded Remington 150 grain core-lokt. The first 2...

    My daughter is about ready for her first deer rifle, but I'am not quite sure which direction I should go. All of my other kids have a Marlin 336 in 30-30. For here in East Texas most of our shots are no more then 100 yards, and she will not want anything with recoil. With these east Texas...

    It was the last weekend of regular deer season, saturday night. A long time member of the deer lease drives up to the camp, and backs his truck up to the scales. That is usually a sure sign that there is a deer in the back of the truck. They get the doe weighed and are stringing it up to skin...

    Recently, I read an article where the author cited a report on the top five rifle cartridges sold in 2008. He stated the numbers seem to be consistent from year to year. The report included the top three companies; Remington, Winchester and Federal. Care to guess which ones they are and how...

    Hi, I just bought a Marlin 336A at Dick's (blue, walnut stock, scope and rings $339 OTD, in case you were wondering). Sorry there are no pics - I'm too clueless to be posting pictures. :) It's my first lever action, I'm very pleased. It shoots great, has a nice action - it's a great rifle. So...

    The old eyes aren't what the used to be, so I've been toying with the idea of scoping my Marlin 336, 30/30. The only thing I use the gun for is recreational shooting at public and private ranges. Got a new Cabela's catalog a couple days ago and they are featuring a lever-action scope...

    I have a marlin 336 in 30-30. I bought it used. It wasn't shot much that I can tell. It shoots horrible. I used 170gr federal ammo. Shot 4" groups at best. I know how to shoot; so, it's not me. I did notice that the primer is backing out of the case which indicates headspace problem. Did...

    Hey everyone, I have been reading the posts in this forum for quite sometime and now that I have recently purchased a Marlin 336W I can dive right in with the conversation. Does anyone have this rifle, and if so what was your luck with it? Got it brand new and fell in love with it at first...
