Sent it from Largo, Fl got it back all done in 10 days. great service, great job!
336 in 35 Remmington
Came home with me today. I haven't fired a lever action in decades but I wanted a short carbine for Alabama brush.
I was led to believe that the 35 has a little more thump than the 30-30. I'm determined to be a one shot one kill type hunter!
I will probably put an XS scope mount on it with an extended eye relief scope.
Raider. Maybe I should've recognized that big loop from Alaska.
jwsracin and rnpollard, welcome.
Both .30-30 and .35 rock the world.
336RC "Spiegel Buckhead Special" 30-30 from 1965.
336RC .35 cal Ballard rifling from 1953.
336 18 1/2" Barrel 30-30 from 1980
336 Saddle-ring 30-30 from 1970
I shot the 35 today!
Seven shots at 30 yards... iron sights... they all touched! I have a new favorite rifle!
This is a sweet shooter!
I will look at reloading for this rifle. The Remington 200's are $1 + a shot. I love this rifle but at this price I will shoot my 1894 in .357 a lot more!
Welcome to Fred, WVStriper and C133.
“The straight-on deer head carving was used for the Spiegel 336 model; according to Brophy 4264 rifles were made for, and sold by Spiegel in Chicago”. Came with a 4x scope, leather sling and swivels and black trigger.
I have some plain old Remington Core-Lokt 200 gr. rn. That I am going to try first. Next I plan to try the Hornady Leverevolution 200 gr when it gets back in stock. I don't handload so I'm limited to what I can shoot off the shelf.
Thanks for the info Abel. I will pick up a box of each when I run across it.
This is a hunting rifle so as long as rifle remains 3 or 4 MOA in terms of accuracy I'm happy.
I shoot Hornady LeverEvolution ammo almost exclusively thourgh it.
I've got some 45 ACP semi-auto pistols with 10,000+ rounds through them and they are still in great shape. I'm not as familiar with how the higher pressure rifle rounds would impact barrel life. I suspect I could get at least 10,000 rounds through my barrel and still have 3 or 4 MOA accuracy but I'd love your input.
Take care of that 30-30 and your great grandkids will shoot it!
I don't think we've ever addressed it here.
