    The Win.307 is alive and doing well in Spain as long its not a NATO Round. I would buy one right now in Win/.308 in a Carbine.

      Who cares what Winchooter does? Their lever guns are outdated and now overpriced made in Japan. Marlin may not be long for the industry either. Cheap bolt guns have put the lever actions on the ropes. A .308 clone is a lot of blast in a short barrel anyway.

        I vote for the .308MarlinExpress - especially with the Hornady flex tip 160gr at 2660fps, 2500energy. They say it equals the .300Savage at all distances.
        The Hornady flex tip is the best advancement for lever action tube fed guns in over 100 years. Breathed new life into my old model'94 30-30. Accuracy in both my '94 and my mod 336 with flex tip is excellent. Probably adds 50 or 75 more yds to the effective range of the 30-30.

          My impression is that the .307 Win has fallen from interest in the United States. Though it offers .308 performance, there weren't that many rifles made in .307 Win and it appears to be clinging to life in the care of handloaders. I think it would be a good chambering for a single-shot like the Ruger #1 or #3 (should Ruger choose to resurrect that model), but the same could be said for the .30-40 Krag. I think the .307 Win, introduced in 1982, didn't receive the support it needed from Winchester. At this point, I would be concerned about the availability of brass for this cartridge.

            If the .308 is a .30-06 in short pants, then the Win. Model 94 is a Model 95 in short pants. The Model 95 weighs in at 8 lbs. 5 oz.
            I would not want a .30-06 in a saddle carbine weighing 6 pounds.
            Say adios to the .307.

                Treestand - thank you for that information. I made a quick sweep of my usual resources and couldn't find any .307 brass! Are you considering a purchase of a .307 Win?

                  MidwayUSA has loaded ammo and brass in stock. Did not see any elsewhere.
