Well I need some opinions. I sold my 307 a couple years back. Wish I had it back. Now I found another. They want too much for it but it sure felt good in my hands. But, I love Marlins also and a 308 Marlin would be hard to beat. I have reloaded for the 307 in the past and it seems like it could actually be more versitile because you can actually load it to a higher pressure. And, shooting the 30/30 Hornady 160 grain LE bullet it should be a fine 300 yard gun. Could be loaded with a BarnsX bullet for Elk with out much trouble. But, the 308 Marlin is easier to scope if I want to scope it. I like the XS lever rail system and you cant put that on a win bigbore. Wildwest happy trigger kit is an easy marlin upgrade etc. And, no i cant buy both! What to do?
