I'm starting to consider selling a few things and getting a .338 Marlin Express. Anyone have experience with the .308/.338 by Marlin? I have read a bit on a marlin forum, and early models had a feeding problem that was cured with extractor fiddling.

I realize that reloading options will be limited, but I am looking for a 200-300 yd deer rifle that can still pack a punch at that range. Not interested in the Browning.

Looking for a lever with legs, have you considered a Savage '99 in .308?

I've been thinking about it.

It would help if you guys would quit talking about it and posting pictures.

As much as I am into military weapons, they are getting uglier and uglier. Too hi tech for hi techs sake in design.

Don't know much about them. They look better than the BLRs, that's for sure. I am pretty pleased with my Marlin Guide Gun - so was considering the .308. After some reading, I think the .338 is a better option for the Marlin.

That's because you live in Canadia, and MarStar imports those things for pennies. Quit bragging.

I suppose.....when the first "black rifle", the M16, came out in the 60s I thought they were nasty ugly, and when I was in the Army in the early 70s I didn't like them much as they seemed flimsy and rattly and "loose" and didn't seem very accurate either. In the 40 years since I've come to really like both the looks and performance of ARs. I suppose to some point it's just what you get used to. But I still think that tan 308 is butt-ugly! Check back with me in a few decades, I might change my mind.
