    Congratulations. Sounds like you found a real deal.
    Maybe you could pass it forward with a small profit or maybe a family member could use a nice lever gun. :))

    Good deal on that 336! If the condition is good I will buy any that I see for under $300.

    Ever since I sold my 336W in 30-30 I have regretted it. Second time I have done that. My LGS has about 6 used ones, different conditions. One in particular I have been thinking HARD about. Its in .35 Rem. Its in the worse shape of all of them, but its a JM stamped one. I know about what he pays for guns he takes in and there is quite a bit of Wiggle Room on the Price. Besides gives me another caliber to reload ....... :cool:

    Perhaps the condition could be used to negotiate a price..if the bore is good could be a fun project to clean up, Never owned a 35 so I`d probley pull the trigger on that one (pun inteneded)

    It's been there goin on two years now. The 30-30s move pretty quick. I have shot one, a long time ago but never owned one either. Only knew of one person around here who did. He was a Judge and died several years back. Around these parts deer is hunted in dense woods and taken avg. 50-75 yards. Those who hunt the big open fields want a flatter shooting rifle, 243, 270, 308 or 30-06. Last deer I took with a 30-30 was runnin right at me in the woods, I was standing behind a tree along a twisting game trail. Something spooked him and I could hear him coming a long way off. I took it at about 20 yards in the upper neck with iron sights.

    I owned a 336 in 35 rem. a couple years ago. I listed it on here for sale but then traded it to a friend that has a soft spot for lever guns.
    If I remember correctly, it was a 1986 model. It had the crossbar safety.

    I'm recoil sensitive so I avoided the 200 gr. bullets as much as possible.
    Chances of me hunting out of state are getting slimmer by the year and I still had my trusty 336T in 30-30. That plus the fact that I've been reducing my inventory over the past several years was reason enough to "share the joy" with someone else.
    However, I did have good success with Hornady 180 gr. XTP bullets. Very acceptable groups. They allowed me to increase the velocity some and gave it a little flatter trajectory. I felt that round would work well in neighboring states because the deer are smaller but then I never took it out of the state so I have no idea about the performance.
    The Hornady 200 gr. FTX reloads shot well also. I reloaded/tested a few of them just in case. I used Hodgdon H4895 in all of my 35 rem. reloads.
    Around here, the 35 rem. is getting hard to find. If the price is right, it would be a good investment.

    Western Washington is the same pert near..lots of thick cover and close shots, there are plenty of opportunity for long cross canyon shots but if they don`t drop on the spot a fella can have a miserable day packin deer up a steep stump filled canyon and I do mean steep, some folks use a winch and a long rope but someone still has to manuver the critter around the stumps and such, would have to be a trophy to go thru that fiasco !!

    That sounds like a lot of work for a click of enjoyment. I better attach myself to that winch so I could get back up there.
