I bought my new hunting rifle today. After alot of thinking and kinda soul searching and debating If I should scope my AR-15 and use some .223 in the 64 grain power points, or 60 grain Nolser Partions, for deer, I just decided to buy a new rifle. I was looking for a rifle that I would use for maybe some spot and stalk, still hunting, and maybe some stand hunting. I figured I would go with a 336 Marlin in 30-30 WIN, along with a scout configuration, and a rear tang peep sight for a back up. So I bought my rifle tonight, and made my order for a Lyman #2 rear tang sight. I plan on a AO Scout mount and I haven't figured out a scope just yet. I just plan on handloading some ammo, and using some of that new Hornady LeverEvolution. I figured that would give me a pretty effective range out to 200 yards. Im pretty excited about getting this all ready for the new hunting season.
