  1. Big Game
    Is a Mosin overpowered for whitetails in the New York region? I've always wanted a Mosin and eventually I'll get one but a friend of a friend recommended I get something in .308 because it's more versatile. I didn't plan on buying a Mosin specifically for hunting, but I know it would kill if I...
  2. The 45/70 Govt.
    Hey there, I'm from Black Forest, Germany and i'm very interested in the Marlin leveractions expecially in .45-70 Gov. I search for something special considering the .45-70 and cast bullets. Currently I hunt with my .308 Win with a 110 Grains Barnes TSX loaded at 3100 fps. I`ve tried a lot...
  3. The 45/70 Govt.
    Hey, I currently own a Marlin 336W in .30-30 WIN. I will be stationed at Fort Richardson, AK (Anchorage, AK) for the next three years at least. I am looking for a good do all rifle to both hunt with and target shoot with (scout rifle concept?). I was thinking a .308 or .300 WIN bolt gun, but...
  4. Hawg Hunting
    I'm running late posting this, but I'll share anyways! My sister has never really enjoyed hunting like I have, and at one point in time probably considered it a worthless sport. On her recent trip back down to Texas, she showed a lot of interest in shooting. I took her down to the property...

    I own the XL7 in .308, and I am very pleased with the rifle and have owned it for over two years, however, I have been unable to locate a tactical stock. Does anyone here know if anyone even manufactures a tactical stock? I know boyds makes a few thumb hole stocks but I don't find them very...

    First, I apologize in advance for the length of the post. I also know that some of my questions have answers in this very forum, but I am having a bit of 'information overload' and hope I can get some real time help via discussion. Allthough I do not currently shoot, have not for 15 plus years...
  7. The Marlin XL7/XS7 Boltaction Centerfire Rifles
    I have had my xs7 in .308 for awhile now and absolutly love it. Recently, however, I got the amazing pleasure of shooting a friends ruger gunsite scout, and now I have to have one. I believe that the pricetag on the ruger is a little steep for what your getting, I mean at that price I could...
  8. The Marlin XL7/XS7 Boltaction Centerfire Rifles
    Bought a Marlin XS7 .308 with a mounted scope today at a gunshow. I am more of a handgun owner but wanted to start using rifles. How do I find "accessories" like a bipod, stocks and other items I would need for this specific model? I know it seems like a stupid question but all of you had to...
  9. Welcome New Members
    Well this year I decided I wanted to get back into hunting. I had hunted when I was 15-16 years old with my dad and grandfather but really haven't hunted since. So I went and bought a XS7 .308. i went with the .308 for several reasons, #1 it was large enough to kill anything I am going to hunt...
