    Marlin 336 - 30-30 versus 35 remington?

    If you were going to have (1) lever action which one would you buy?

    I know the 30-30 ammunition is easier to find but it seems there is allot of love for the 35 remington.
    I hunt in South Texas and will use it some for deer and hogs.
    I hunt mostly with scoped rifles for trophies but after that the fun begins with culls and does.
    It looks as though there are some clean 35 remingtons for sale around $300.
    I will either put a Skinner Sight on it or a 2.5x7x32 scope.

    Thanks!

    Of the two choices given, I'd go with the 35 and not look back.

    Now, if I truly had to limit myself to just one, I'd go with the 444.

    A clean .35 Rem for around $300 is a real bargain in this area.

    I'll say with the .30-30. Never seen one fail to anchor a deer or hog.

    I have owned Marlins in .35 Remington, and every time, I would up selling them.

    I've played this game! My first Marlin was a .35rem 336A, I didn't reload at the time and the ammo cost was significant. I've got 2 30-30's now, factory ammo is somewhat reasonable and reloading the 30-30 is pretty cheap fun. I'll always have a 30-30.

    If you want easier to find and cheaper ammo get the .30-30, if you want the superior riffle get the 35 Remington.

    Gave my 30/30 to my son after owning, reloading & shooting my 35 Rem.

    We have a thread like this every now and then because we are always getting new members who haven't been parties to the other threads.

    Frankly, I think it boils down to a matter of personal preferance. If I had to make a choice between the two, I would pick the .35 Remington. But, to tell the truth, anything I could kill with a .35, I could probably kill just as dead with a .30-30. As a matter of fact, I have a number of each, and I like both chamberings pretty well. I'm a handloader, so cost of ammunition is not really a factor for me.

    Just 1, then I'd have to go with the .30-30. It will accomplish everything a .35 will on deer and hogs and ammo is more abundant. If I were you, I'd do my best to own several of each!

    Yes, $300 would be considered a very good price on a clean.35 around here. They're usually closer to the $400 mark.
