Gearing up for our annual Levergun fest. Good food, good eating, good fun and lots of long range levergun shooting. The Marlin 336 Cowboy is well represented there as is it's predecessor, the Marlin 1893.

@ Mo:
great shooting spot,
this kind of shooting is very IMPOSSIBLE in our part of Europe.

Where can I book? Hope there is some possibility of horse-back-riding to

Have fun,

Peter

Vaupet: Anytime you're ever in the area (Washington, Idaho, British Columbia), let me know.

We have an informal get together every year (mid-July) with levergun enthusiasts from all over. The accommodations are spartan - I bring my tent, some hotel in town. The grub is basically a four day pot-luck and always good. We shoot out to 1200 yards with leverguns and single shots (Sharps).

GREAT group of guys, most very experienced. We get a few newbies every year and most come back with more guns the next.

The rancher is a great guy. His horses are working horses and working his cattle is about the only way I know to get to ride one. They are a friendly bunch of critters though.

The short answer is yes.

You will get the best results if the bullet is sized to your bore. Microgroove barrels tend to like fatter (for caliber) bullets. The same is true of Ballard style rifling though they tend to shoot undersized better than MG barrels.

Based on friends that have 375 Marlins I would suspect you'll need a .376" or 377" diameter cast bullets. If you can slug your bore it will save you some time in load development.

Good luck and let us know how it goes.

I picked up a .35 Remington this morning
It's the pistol grip, next to my .30-30 Texan.
The .35 has a cracked stock, so if I can find all the parts cheap enough, I might change it to straight.

I recently received a new in the box early 1980's 336 in .35 Remington that was my father's. The box still had the original price on it, something like "On Sale - $116"

I fit it with a Leupold 3-9, and its a tack driver. What a sweet rifle. It'll be my deer gun this fall, no doubt.

Save the 250's for big bore.
Hey Nem, when was the last time you got to shoot your 336? I hope you're finding some good range time on the east side. Are you doing any hunting out there?

I have a 336 in 35 Rem that I would love to take out a little farther. I am currently a student at WSU, is the ranch nearby to Pullman?

LOVE this thread

Those are some nice 336's. I hunt exclusivly with my 336a 30-30 here in minnesota, sure fills the freezer. Last deer i shot was a button buck that tipped the scales at about75 lbs soaking wet lol. was using the hornady lever ammo (federal power shok is the standard load for this rifle ) with a high shoulder hit bang flop as they say. Going to maine in september on black bear hunt we'll see what the 170 grain core lokts can do. like the idea of a 336 club, exclusive to the the 30-30

Hi all,

Been chewing through the club pages all weekend, after coming onto the thread in search of round ball and 30-30 small game loads.

http://www.thehighroad.org/showpost....postcount=1794 being one of the posts.

My 1st Marlin was my gran'pap's 39 he bought new the year I was born, 1958. I've had it since about 1970. The next was his 336 in 35 rem in similar vintage, inherited from my dad 10 years ago. Fast forward to the 2008's presidential panic frenzy buying spree (still on-going) and I picked up a new 336 in 30-30, being a marvelous gun and versatile caliber to reload for.

Just handed the claim to the 30-30 to my middle son, who took his 1st. deer with it last weekend.



336's, can't imagine life without 'em.

Thanks for the link, JB.

The squib or gallery loads have been around forever. Like they say, "nothing new under the sun." Every generation of die-hards seem to discover them eventually. It's nice with the search engines to efficiently mine the collective hive mentality. Sure saves covering much ground that's already been plowed.

The big plus is beating the price of 22 lr by a huge order of magnitude, with greater utility and a variety of loads for every application. How nice to take the 336's out for an afternoon at pennies a pop!

(as if I needed an excuse)

Too funny...That is my thread...

I finally got around to playing with round balls, and settled on Red Dot (as that is what I have a bit of) under some .310" balls in my Marlin 1893...

I have old skillets at 45 and 60 yards from the house, and can keep the round balls on them all day...

"A few" grains of Red Dot rolls the varmints in the garden with authority...

I take an unresized case, decap and prime, a dipper of Red Dot, and tap a ball flush with the case mouth sprue up...I then slather on a dollop of LLA and go shoot...

Salmoneye, are you loading those one at a time in your rifle or do you load them from the magazine? My 336 in 35Rem can't load empties from the magazine without jamming (I have to take the rifle apart to un-jam it no less!).
