    shane,ish,
    Ammo can be a bit difficult to find around deer season if I want a particular kind (Federal in my gun) so I don't wait. But, I have waited and that's why I bought dies for it, and have plenty of loaded rounds on hand just in case.

    I think its a great gun. Doesn't kick alot, small so it's great in wooded areas, wont get caught up in branches so much. Works great on deer and coyotes. It's what I started out with 5 years ago and I havnt had any problems with it.

    The model 336 and the XLR are both great guns.

    Marlins are fine rifles, over 100 years in production, so that sort of says it all. The newer Browning Lever Rifle offers a bit more pwer choices. The Marlin in 30-30 as well as 35 Rem are now expanded by the Hornady folks flex tips. However, in order to get the best performance from a flex tip you should be using the Marlin XLR (a 24" barrel. The BLR can get you top performance in several great rounds, 243, 7-08, 308, 358,450 Marlin, 270, 30'06, as well as the new short mags 270 WSM, 300 WSM and 325 WSM. You can eve get the rifle set up as a scout and take down for traveling. Very versatile and long range accurate with the rotating bolt lock up. I have mine in 358 Winchester set up with Williams firesights, and Leupold QR mounts and a Leupold VXI 2-7 x 33 scope with the ballistic drop reticle, alumi-Rain kote lense protectors. I also own several other levers, a model 71 winchester (which is the real cream of the crop lever if you can find one) in 348 Winchester as well as a model 64 in 30-30. Those last two are quasi safe queens now but were real fine hunters in their early years. The 64 is set up as a scout rifle with a leupod 2.5 FXII scope with QRW mounts and rings, whereas the model 71 has a offset scope mount with a weaver 1-3.5 x 26 and Williams firesights for open sight back up.

    I really like Shane's idea of the .35 Rem. Ammo might be a little more difficult to locate but it is a great round in a small package capable of much more than many give it credit.

    Owned one since the age of 7 and poured a lot of lead out of it from 100 to 170 grainer’s, I love it still even after 46 years! Of course My rifle says ''Revelation Western Auto Supply Co Model 200, that’s how old it is!

    Yes, i agree with these guys, if you want a lever action, the Marlins are probably the top choice. You can shoot the Hornady flex-tip bullets in it, increasing range and velocity to previously unseen levels in production loads for the good ol' .30-30

    I don't think that you can go wrong in buying one.

    Yep the best lever made. Easy to scope, locks up tight to keep the weather out of the action, most are accurate, rugged and reliable, feels good in your hands, plus .30-30s still are a good choice in many environments. I have a friend who hunts bear, mule deer and elk in the Rockies with one of these by preference. He uses no scope or sling. He also is a very successful hunter.
