Time to get ready.........

RE: Time to get ready.........
Wow Kurt - got to focusing on that one with gas check still attached and the land imprints ... I bet you DID have fun with that bore afterwards.

I guess I really don't shoot anything fast unless jacketed and that is rare. Got to thinking about it and I think even in the 32 spec and 30-30 I was always in the 15-1600fps range or lower.

Oh - and not microgroove in either. So guess I've never been there. The load in the microgroove 45-70 was WELL under that, more like BP velocities.

What is a “waffle top”? I’ve owned a bunch of Marlins in my lifetime and allhave been very good shooters, except one 1893. But I’ve had no luck finding the right combination for the 30-30 with cast bullets of 309 and 310 diameter.

On older Marlins on top of receiver there's a squiggly texture imprinted to cut glare. I've had better luck with 311 diameter.

.311 here too.

Here are a couple pictures. They made from 1948 to 1952.

I really like the 336-As because I like the fore end cap over a barrel band. Though my 1953 RC shot well enough to make me forget that preference from time to time.

This was a nice 336-A(DL) in 32 or 30-30; not positive because I had twins.
   

This is my truck gun... probably not worth much. That and being a 35Rem has probably saved it.
   

Little better view of the waves on this one that I was doing some rehab on.

Thanks guys. I’d never seen a waffle top before - interesting. Guess I’m going to have to add another mold to my already overabundant collection.
