    I thought i was a total spaz when i saw my group was soo high and the sight was bottomed out. i called it a day so i could do some research. i am looking at a skinner alaska peep sight and rail, but i am a little pvd that it was soo poor out of the box.

    Fredy, when you are looking at Skinners site, order a new front sight. Go to the range with the new front sight installed and a file. File the front sight to fit, or just email them with your results. They will be more than happy to help you.

    I'm liking the idea of a new 3030 with a rear peep sight... but what do you do about the buckhorn over the barrel? take it off somehow, or just leave it, useless but still there, like an appendix?

    Here's a crappy pic of my Marlin 336W while it isn't super unique by any means it's payed for itself several times over by filling my freezer on countless occassions therefor it has a earned a special place with me (and it's not a Remlin :) ).

    Welcome in, Whetrock. Fine looking rifle. Congrats on the its 'pre' status.
    I got lucky too; got one of the last before the switch.

    Texan Scott, just 'ping' it out with a hammer and point (slides out to either side) and put it away in a safe place, labeled for future generations should they wish to use it.

    My 336ER in 356 Winchester. I've owned it since 1995. I haven't shot it in 10 years or so.

    Wow, Kbeck, what a beautiful rifle. You've taken good care of it, except it sounds lonely, needs to be shot. :rolleyes: (Like mine.)

    I have a standard 336 in 30-30 bought from Walmart a couple of years ago. It is an exceptional gun and probably my favorite hunting rifle. I have killed many wild hogs with it. I bought an AR for carrying with me to the deer lease when riding on the Ranger, just in case I run across a group of hogs, but it ended up staying in the gun cabinet and eventually was sold. Every time I left for the lease I just had to have the 336. I guess it's a mental thing...

    Anyway, mine has a new trigger in it and sports a Nikon Prostaff 3-9x40 scope. I love the way it shoots!!!

    Great story, BoneDigger. Thanks for sharing.

    Sheepdog, definitely not the most posts, even in Rifle Country (let alone compared to "The 642 Club" :eek: ). But we're up there.

    Interestingly, The Marlin 39 Club has more posts than this one (3800+), but this one has more views (668,175).

    Besides, we're more about quality that quantity. :D

    Figured it was time update my relationship status here on 336-book. Still the proud owner and user of 336's in 30-30 and my favorite and most used 38-55 (the parent case for the 30-30).

    Earlier this year I had a custom mold made ( www.accuratemolds.com ) for my 38-55 336 Cowboy. The Lee 379-250 had been working well but I wanted a few tweaks to make it a little better in my rifle. I wanted it to drop .382" (or bigger), I wanted a bore riding ogive ahead of the crimp groove and I wanted a flat base.


    The first casting was very encouraging.

    Loaded and ready to go to the range

    The on paper results reinforced my optimism

    However, nothing is truly tested until we get it out to at least 400 yards

    A few details: Bullet weight = 260 grains, enough Unique powder to get it going a bit over 1300 fps, Winchester primers, Starline (long) Brass (THE brass to use with this caliber), Marlin 336 Cowboy (Conversion. Originally began life as a late sixties vintage Saddle Ring Texan before being converted, by Marlin to a Cowboy a few years ago).

    LOVE that rifle. Awesome on Milk Jugs too.

    Some early testing out in the yard
