Bass Pro out here is having their Hunter Sale or something like that. I do not hunt, well nothing other than paper targets and aluminum cans. They have a Marlin 336W for $399, I saw it mentioned on here and it is a 30-30 round and got me looking into lever action rifles. First rifle I shot was a .357 mag cowboy rifle. Not even sure what it was, I was 10.
Here is what I am considering. Is this price that great, and should I get it? Or should I look into a .357 magnum lever action rifle? It will be for fun and yes eventually I plan on getting both. I have a GP 100 so having guns that shoot similar ammo is cool, but not a necessity. Also anyone know of the ballistics on a 30-30 vs .357 as they get out there to 100+ yards. I have read on the net that these are quite effective out to good distances and look much less "evil", and being in the republic over here it is a concern. Already have an sks as my SHTF rifle.
Thanks in advance!
Also suggestions of which are welcome and encouraged as well! Looked at the Win 1894 too, but like the takedown option on most Marlins I saw.
