    Range report of 30-30 100 yards. My xmas gift...

    from my wife that is mentioned in another thread.


    Here are the range reports. Open Sights, 100 yards, Federal Power Shock 170 grain. Who says a 30-30 isn't an accurate gun? This thing rocks! As you can see it took a while to find out how the trigger and gun shot. Once I got the feel for her, she shot very good. I could not have asked for a more consistent firing gun.

    Look above the target...I believe it's a Marlin 336W.

    My favorite caliber of all time! I have both the Marlin 336W and a savage Bolt action .30-.30 340C. Congrats on the great gun and good shooting! (At least the last part)

    You need to try some of the Hornady LEVERevolution and see how the Marlin can really perform. It really does make a difference. I have a Marlin 336W as well.
    Great Day - New Gun - new pics added. I installed the scope mentioned in the thread but removed it later. I couldn't justify using such a nice rifle as a truck gun and I don't hunt so it really wasn't needed. I put my SKS in the truck and put the scope on my Saiga .308. I have really enjoyed shooting the 336. I need to get out and shoot it some more soon.

    Hey dr_cmg.

    Good tips on the LeverEvolution. I really wanted to get some, but for $15/box more than the Federal PowerShok 170gr, I could not justify the difference. I know that the Federal round is proven from experience, and I am sure the Hornady round steps up the Lever Guns.
    From what I have read though, the real difference the Hornady gives is from a 24" barrel in 30-30. Me having a 20" seems to negate the Hornady ammo's benefits. The benefits to me do not seem like a $15 dollar advantage.

    I will stick to the big bad 170 grain. As slow as it may be, and the rainbow trajectory doesn't deter me at all. And for $9.99 or less a box locally I will buy all they have of the Federal Round Nose Soft Point and shot till it hurts. :)
