marlin 336w round


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


This is a simple question: on marlins website the 336w is posted as a centerfire. it says the caliber is 30-30win; i i thought 30 30s were rimfire cartridges so my question basically is will the marlin shoot any 30 30 rimfire round or are there some special centerfire round?

The 30-30 Winchester round is a centerfire cartridge- always has been.

You may be mistaking the term "rimmed" cartridge with the term "rimfire" cartridge. Two totally different things. The 30-30 is indeed a "rimmed" cartridge as is the 45-70, .38-55, .32 Win Spcl, and lots of other older cartridges, along with a few of newer design as well like the .375 Win., .338ME and .308ME.

Welcome to the sometimes confusing world of firearms, and Shooter's Forum, burfniner.

Today, there are no rimfire cartridges made larger than .22 caliber, other than an occasional run of .32 RF to satisfy the owners of older rifles so chambered.

100 years ago, there used to be a .30 caliber rimfire, but it was a short, revolver round - and not the world famous .30-30 Winchester centerfire, which was introduced even earlier - ca. 1895, IIRC.

100 years ago, there were also Marlin rifles chambered for the .32 rimfire - but that was a much smaller actioned gun than a Model 336.

If the barrel on your 336 is stamped for the 30/30 cartridge, you can shoot any ammunition so labeled.

As others have told you , it is center fire .

One of the most readily available calibers in the USA , or , it was until the Obama scare started . :-( But , just about all ammo sold out . Seems to be getting better .

God bless
