    Savage 99 vs. Marlin 336.

    They both have their strengths and weaknesses.
    I think the 99 has an advantage "caliber" wise, from there, it's a toss up.

      Savage was introduced 50 years before the 336 - a rifle way before it's time in design and caliber offerings. Last made sometime in late 1990's.
      Internal magazine allowed the use of pointed bullets that allowed top performance from their calibers. The fit and feel of the rifle attracted hunters to the various models and options available. Used values across all models are generally higher that those of the 336. The higher costs of manufacturer contributed to it's eventual demise.
      The Marlin was a post WWII rifle and competed well with the Winchester '94. The price point was more in the reach of the average hunter.
      A 'brush' gun, it was easily equipped with a scope.
      Many, many big game have been taken with both rifles.

            The Marlin 336 is an excellent choice as a woods rifle. That said, many of those who've owned or worked with a Savage 99 will have a deep appreciation for it, and I number myself among them. I've owned or used the Savage 99 in .250 Savage, .300 Savage and .308 Win, and much as I recommend the Marlin to those who consider it, I confess a soft spot in my heart for the Savage 99. I doubt I could afford one if they reintroduced it, especially with the internal rotary magazine, but it was a very good rifle.

              Savage 99 in .308W or .300 Savage anytime for a deer rifle.
