  3. Pushing the Limits of the Marlin 336 (or, How my .30-30 Got the AX)

    Ranger Point Precision
    I got to wondering recently. Typically, if that goes on long enough, the ol’ measuring stick comes out, then unusual credit card charges begin to appear, and before you know it, there’s a fresh pile of chips on the mill table.
