    What is wrong with some people.

    Well today I seen it with my own eyes and would'nt have beleived it had I not seen it for myself. If you remember I started a thread called the Dreaded Marlin jam not to long ago, just scroll down and you will see it if you missed it. Well this involves the same individual as I referred to in that thread. That morning because he could not hunt with his 30-30 he hunted with his 308. So this afternoon I asked him if he was going to go back out to the area we had been hunting as yesterday he seen a 15pt buck(says him I was not there). He stated that he could not as his 336 had jammed on him this morning.
    I looked at him a little puzzled and asked how it had jammed again already. (Drum role please) He said to me that he had inadvertantly shoved a Hornady SST .308 Win round into the magazine tube :shock: :roll: thinking that it was a 30-30 Leverevolution. After calling him a dumba$$ and a few other choice words I asked him how in the world can you not tell the two cartridges apart by feel as they feel totally different in the hand and the fingers. Anyway I told him to bring me the rifle and I was able to dislodge the wrong cartridge from the Mag tube with a cleaning rod. Same thing as before, he and another guy who I thought was a little smarter than him (I was wrong on that one too) were both at it again with a multi tool of some kind trying to pry the round from the magazine tube and defacieng the loading gate in the process :roll: :roll: . All I know is that the word TOOL SHED comes to mind immediately now when I think of both of them.[/b]

    I'm thinking single shot.

    Maybe he is a metric kind of guy and just got 7.62x51mm (.30 and 7.62x51mmR (.30-30) mixed up

    I think he needs to sell his 336 and get a BLR in .308 so as to not injure himself. That way he can still have a lever gun AND use just one caliber in either of his deer rifles.
    f at first you don't succeed.... you must not be shooting a .45/70

    About as bad as my brother-in-law...

    I make everyone shoot on the range before we hunt. My BIL has a nice Savage 99 chambered in 250 Sav that his dad left him but he isn't much of a shot. In fact, he shot up all his ammo trying to hit the 50-yard target. He told me he was going to go to Wal-Mart and buy some more (the only place in town with ammo). I told him I didn't think he would find that caliber in town but he went anyway. When I see him next he is trying to get a 30-30 Win cartridge into that 250 Sav. I asked him why he bought the ammo and he said it was the same color of box!

    Well...as the great comedian Ron White says..."You Can't fix stupid" :lol: Just try hard not to hunt with them or be at the table next to them at the range. :shock:

    I know sencible people that have screwed up jamming the wrong shell in a gun, but RD that boy needs to go to school as I think he'll hurt someone faster than the chap in the first post.

    Is his fathers name, Forrest Gump? Kinda makes a real thought as to why Andy only gave Barney one bullet for a gun that the bullet would fit in.

    Thats why in USSR we had only one caliber for pistol - 9x18 Mak
    One caliber for rifle 7.62x39

    Well. We had two shotshell sizes (12 and 16) but all the guns were break-open action so it would either not fit or will slide right through the barrel :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

    Cheers,
