if the name of the game is deerhunting and you can get the 336 for $350 with the cheaper stock, get that one. you won't feel as bad when it gets dinged up a little hunting and you are more interested in the working part of the gun, not the pretty. the marlin 336 in 30-03 is a fine gun for deer hunting and taken care of, you will be able to pass on to your son later. from a personal standpoint, as i have owned several winchester 94s and have shot many marlin 336s, i like the looks of the winchester better, but the marlins action is a little smoother and more robust.

Breaking in a barrel is a myth. The best practice is to clean it first, then just shoot it. Clean as necessary after that.

i think you will be very happy with the Marlin 336! they are very good rifles and i plan on adding one to my collection in the future also.

brand new gun i would clean the barrel before shooting, just to be sure there is nothing in the bore. then i would sight it in with about five rounds, then clean it again, then shoot five more, clean it again. do this for about one box of shells then it should be good to go. this is the method i use on my new rifles.

I am also in the process of purchasing a Marlin 336c. I am getting it in a .35 Rem rather than a 30-30. Just my personal choice. I have herd nothing but good things about this rifle.

What would I do to break it in? Take it out of the box, give it a cleaning and then shoot the snot out of it.

Breaking in a new hunting rifle?

I usually drag a ring of keys across the stock a time or two to put a few scatches in the finish. Clean bore and action well. Drop it down the steps, or let it slide off the hood of the truck. Take a hot shower with the rifle, leave it in the shower for a few hours, muzzle down to drain.

Or you could just loan it to your teen aged nephew.

C3, that is quite possibly your best post ever.

I've used my father's 30-30 that he got new for his 16th birthday (now the gun is 26 years old), and I absolutely love it. It's been extremely reliable and has killed more deer than any gun in my grandfathers safe, as well as my dad and I's.
