Re: scope for marlin 336
I agree they aren't as accurate as many bolt action rifles but with good ammo that your rifle likes they shoot better than they need to to put meat on the table. They never were designed to shoot paper.
I have a 1952 336 in 35 Remington that has taken more deer and bear than any gun that I own. It has never failed to bring down game with one shot so it must be accurate enough to place a bullet where it needs to go and that's all that really matters.
Scopes...I thought this thread was about scopes.
This Redfield Widefield 2-7 has been on it since sometime in the '70's. I'm not a big fan of scoping lever action rifles but after all this time it's staying put.
