    I should properly introduce myself. My name is Ken I live in Western Washington. I am retired from the Army and have been around firearms for quite some time,I have hunted since I was 12 but have a great respect for gods creatures. I don`t beleave in trophy hunting, if your not going to eat it don`t kill it is how I was raised. I have a 336 30-30 and several other rifles shotguns and handguns. I just started reloading and its a lot of fun. glad to be here and thanx for having me..

    welcome to the forum Ken! those 336 30-30's are great rifles. i had one several years ago, and regret trading it off now. i have always liked the look of the winchester M94, but prefer the smoother and stronger of the 336. good luck and welcome.

    I really like it axxe, funny you mentioned the winnie 94, I shot my first deer with a `52 year model 94 chambered in .32 special. My brother ended up with it,I`ve been trying to get it from him for years..

    oldbrass, you're hurting my feelings! M94 in 32 win.sp. is one i have been trying to find. i have a set of reloading dies that my dad had for when he had one chambered for that years ago. too bad nobody chambers for that round anymore.

    Yep the .32 is a great deer cartridge. it is basically a 30-30 necked up to be a little bigger. it never really took off and the 35 remington sealed its fate.the .32 are very hard to find in Marlin or winchester, The 32 my brother got was my fathers. I really want it but I`m happy it will never leave our family.

    Welcome to the forum Ken. That is one of the nicest and to the point introduction.
    No doubt that you will be an asset to the group.
