I agree with all the above posts regarding the Marlin 336 being a mighty fine rifle. I've owned one for over 4 decades and consider it one of my guns that will never be traded of for sale.

[QUOTE=Muliemaster;623971]In no way shape or form does either 357 nor 44mag match that of a 30-30 a44 mag at 50 yards velocity is 1365 with a 180 grain an the energy is only745 ft lbs while the 30-30 at 100 yards velocity for a 160 grain is at 2156 fps an has 1643 foot lbs so not even close by any means the 357 is less than the 44 not the match u were talkin about[/QUOT

You are comparing apples to oranges. You compared a rifle ballistic to a one from a handgun. When a pistol round is shot from a rifle you can add 250 to 300 fps to the pistol ballistics. Using a .357 158gr (closer to a 30-30 then your example) a velocity of 1500 fps can be 1800 fps from a rifle. This is just a factory load. A Buffalo Bore (.357 magnum) 19C 158gr J.H.C. - 2100fps from Marlin 1894CP 16.25" ported barrel. Also a factory load. I have friends who reload pistol rounds just for a rifle. By using a max load of slower burning powder they can come real close to anything a 30-30 can do. Of course these would not shoot well from a handgun.

Thanks for the balistis info,as I said in no way shape or form does a 357 match that of a 30-30. Even if fired from a rifle 30 percent lower in balistic performance is not a small margin

But I will agree that the handgun calibers fired through a rifle, do have impressive numbers for short range work. That said u did make a strong point

Seriously I used to frown on the pistol grip on the Marlin (guess I thought the Winchester '94 was THE GUN) but after shootin a few I was SOLD on the feel & handlein - much more a natual grip

As I stated in my original post. A re-loader can almost match the 30-30 with the .357. In the article Lever-Action Ballistics: .30-30 vs. .357 Magnum | The Truth About Guns
they did not even test the Buffalo Bore (.357 magnum) 19C 158gr J.H.C. This round is for lever guns. Re-loaders can even improve on that.

Is there any benefit in having a levergun in a pistol caliber? I've known of them, but never really knew what to use them for?
