    Range time with my new to me Savage 99 300 and my Marlin 336

    So my Savage 99 lever action 300 is iron sights and I was excited to shoot it since I bought it at a local auction two weeks ago. I also brought my Marlin 336 .35 Rem. That one has a 9x40 scope. I felt pretty confident in the Savage and like it a lot. Cycles rounds very nice. Not bad for a 1947 birth gun. My Marlin born in 1972 was spot on... I put 5 rounds in at 50 yds the size of a quarter. I did not want to walk 100 yds to set up a target and I don't think I would have even hit the target at 100 yds with the Savage...

    The Marlin lever is smooth as butter, has more of a kick but I still enjoyed the Savage. Not sure if I want to get optics for the Savage at this time...

    I am thinking since the Savage is in such nice shape, I may want to find an OEM scope. I don't hunt any more...

    Any comments on if I should go with OEM or new optics? I know I will eventually sell the Savage for something else, most likely a Winchester.

    Congrats, those targets look pretty nice. Haven't even got to take my new to me marlin 30-30 out yet.
    The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.

    My first rifle was a Savage 99, lever action .308. I Had to sell it and I have always regretted it. That Savage has such smooth lines you might want to leave it in original condition. That might add to it's worth come selling time.

    Oh man, I can't believe you'd sell the savage .300. That is a gun that just feels right and hits where you point it.

    Mine's been killing white tails since '61. Three generations!

    Why would you want to sell? Similar muzzle energy to the .30-30 with better long range performance. Soot 200yards with confidence. You can find light weight varmint rounds (125 gr if I remember correctly. Please correct me.), 150 gr deer size, or 180 gr round nose.
    Striker fired, cocked striker indicator, the safety locking the lever, loaded magazine counter...this is a safe, reliable, accurate, versatile and easy to use rifle.
