I am seriously shopping for a 336SS. I had one corralled but it got bought before I could make my mind up, dang! I know these have, pretty sure, Micro Groove rifling. I have always shot jacketed bullets in previous 336 rifles. I currently shoot a 45-70 and use now only cast lead bullets in it. I have had minimal leading but shooting pretty mild stuff (however mild an ounce of lead can be at 1000 FPS+ or more) but am concerned that the 30-30 higher normal velocities (to be useful) and the Micro Groove rifling might not be a good match?

What say y'all folks? I do reload, though not hooked on it, only where it makes sense or I need something special.
