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.

Very late to the thread but wondering if you shot the 3031 loads?

My lever actions are like lunchmeat, they're 'always' ready, a Turnbull '86 in 50-110 WCF fires a 700 gr flat nosed greaser over 90 grains of KIK 2F for 1240 fps, year model 1892 45-70 half round short mag '86 fires a 500 gr flat nose greaser with KIK 3F at 1237 fps, and another little '86 in year model 1891 in 40-65 WCF fires at 250 gr flat nosed grease groove bullet at 1600 fps with a big charge of OE3F.

I believe the two old lever guns have the black powder chambers as they love the stuff, these guns are fun as hell to shoot and hunt with.
