    Stupid Newbie Question - How many rounds in 336RC?

    Ok guys, I'm admittedly new to Firearms, and more specifically Marlin Lever Actions.

    I did a search, and am now embarassed that I have to ask:

    How many rounds can I fit in the magazine tube of my 336RC (1964 model).

    I'm ashamed...

    Thanks,
    SQ

    All the 20" full length tube 30/30's hold 6 in the mag.

    6 is what I assumed - but it seemed pretty tight after I had 3 in it.

    I appreciate the info!

    Might have some crud in the tube.
    If it stays tough I'd take it apart & clean it out. It should get harder as you add rounds & compress the spring but not much.

    Six in mag tube + one in chamber = seven rounds on board when fully loaded IF mag tube & spring are functioning properly.

    I am getting a little crusty myself these days and can tell you that I have not fully loaded a levergun in this century and maybe not in the last 20 years.

    When I competed in the early days of Practical Pistol shooting in the 1970's you had to mentally count your shots because it was often advantageous to reload before empty depending on the course of fire. Anyway...

    My pump shotguns must be plugged to a max capacity of 2 + 1 = 3 rounds to comply with state and federal regulations. I decided that loading all my long guns to the same was the simplest way to consistently know when to reload whether hunting pheasant, rabbit, or elk. So I load 2 + 1 = 3 in shotguns, boltguns, and leverguns.

    s has never let me down in the field. Besides, if I shoot three times at a bird or game animal and it is still going it is time to take a deep breath and evaluate the situation. Reloading after three consecutive shots, which rarely happens, gets me back on track mentally.

    I must add that revolvers are the exception. They get full cylinders.

    Outstanding advice WyoStillhunter. I am new to this and your advice is something that I will adopt.
