what is it? mossberg? savage? winchester? just always wanted one. neat little set up. i like the 150's but 170's are good as well. shoot different weights in different brands and find what the gun likes best.

Although I don't have a 30/30 any more, I would strongly recommend that you take a look at Hornady's new Leverevolution ammo for that caliber. It's supposed to increase range out to 300 yards with a lever gun, so with a bolt, it might be even better! Good luck!

With a 150 grain bullet my chart says to sight it in at 25yards. then the rest is as follows

+10 inches @50 yards
+2.75 inches @100 yards
+2.25 inches @ 150 yards
-.75 inches @ 200
-5 inches at 250

I am sure it is different depending on what rounds you use but this should give you a good idea.

that Winchester and the side by side maybe worth more than you think. do some research. heck research all of them. you may want to keep them clean and locked up when not shooting them. old timer in his 60's?? how old are you? i wish guys would fill out their user profiles. it would make responding easier.

Default Marlin

In Marlin Is A 30/30 Marlin Lever Action And I Looked Into The Double Barrel Shotgun On The Internet And They Are Going Any Where From 1500 To 14000 So Iam Gonna Hold On To That One For Sure And It Is Sure Fun To Shoot
