    As we all know just about all types of ammo is sold out. For the first time in my life I can not find 30-30 Winchester, or even 270 Winchester. You want to know what I can find? 280 Remington / 7mm Express. In the mid-1990s I asked for and received as a Christmas present a Remington model...

    Found an older Marlin 336 in a local pawn shop and put it on layaway. According to the serial number, the rifle was made in 1976. I am thinking about leaving it without a scope. The receiver is drilled and tapped. This would be an up close deer rifle. I thought about having it cerakote...

    What would you consider to the best whitetail deer cartridge for shooting less than 100 yards? Let's say 50 - 75 yards. Southeast Texas, whitetail deer. Handgun cartridges are acceptable. I was thinking either a 357 or 44 magnum lever action. Then again, why not just go with the 30-30...

    With the innovation newer cartridges, is the 30-30 Winchester obsolete? This question arises from comments on a youtube video I made about stockpiling ammo. A John Rambo commented: I respectfully disagree. I have seen first hand time and time again what the 30-30 Winchester does to...

    Between the 7.62x39, 300 AAC Blackout, or 30-30 Winchester, which one would be best suited for short range hunting in a post-shtf / teotwawki world? There is a small patch of woods on my property that deer pass through. If I were to set up a deer stand we are talking about a 50 - 75 yard shot...

    Lets say that some kind of SHTF situation happens tonight, how ready is your ammunition stockpile? Whether its nuclear war, plague, disease outbreak, collapse of the dollar,,,, something happens to disrupt society. What kind of ammunition do you have stockpiled to hunt and protect your...
  7. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    One thing that strikes me as odd, is when people start talking about stockpiling a few simple survival supplies, the conversation will sometimes turn towards money, and how much to cost to prepare. I have had people say "I dont have $1,000 to drop on a food stockpile", or something along those...

    I'm thinking about getting a new deer rifle and if I do, it's going to be a Marlin 336. I've been reading about the 336 in 35rem. I'm sorry, but I don't know what that is? Can someone help me to understand if that is a 30-30 cal. or what. If you can help me get unstuck from stupid, I would...

  10. Firearms General Discussion
    I don't want to start yet another cartridge debate but for my shtf/bug out main rifle, i have settled on either a Marlin 336 or a Winchester model 94 lever action. I know that they are not the number one choice but my Dad (I'm only 15) is not too fond of the evil black rifles, mostly he doesn't...

    Was thinking on my way to work today about the marlin 336 when this thought came into my head. Is there much different in the power and accuracy of a lever and a bolt, since it's not spending energy to eject a spent cartridge?
  12. Rifle Forum
    Hello All Well I did a search on this before I posted this thread but either I don't know how to use the search feature properly or there wasn't a thread that touched on this question. I'm curious to hear people's thoughts on the merit of a bolt action rifle vs. a lever action. I have a wide...
