Re: scope for marlin 336
"You're not going to get pinpoint accuracy out of a lever action brush gun made for hunting deer sized targets in wooded areas"
Obviously you're not up to speed as regards the latest in lever gun/ cartridge technology there Brother WW; for if you had any experience with the new Hornady 308ME and 338MELeverevolution cartridges, and the traditional Marlin lever guns for which they were designed, you would not publicly make such a bogus claim. One of these rifles. properly tuned and loaded with factory Hornady Leverevolution ammo is more than capable of bolt action performance out to 400 yards; so please allow me to suggest you check out the Marlin Owners forum and read some of the posts there pertaining to the performance MO members have extracted from these rifles. Hornady has also updated the old 30/30, 35 Rem, and 32 Special lever guns loads with high-performance Leverevolution ammo; and it is astounding how these new updated cartridges have improved the accuracy and long ranger performance of the traditional lever gun. And again, buy all the scope you can afford; for target shooting or hunting, such a scope will be the best shooting accessory investment you will ever make.
