I am a new member and need some advice. I just purchased a new 336 in 30 30 Cal. ,mounted a redfield 2-7x40 scope and have shot about 50 rounds through the gun. At 50 yards I cannot consistantly group under 3 inches. I am shooting Remington 150gr Core Locs, and 160 gr Leverevolutions. My co worker who is an avid shooter, reloader and excelant shot can't do any better, we have even shot some of his reloads with the same results. After every three shots I run an oiled patch,brush and patch through the barrel while allowing it to cool. While the gun is cooling I can take my Remington 700 , 30 06 and group 1 to 1.25 inches,using Remington 150gr Core Locs, leaving me to believe that I am not flinching or pulling the shots. This my first Marlin in 30 30 but I do have one in .357 that is one of my favorite guns. I have even taken a couple small hogs with it at close range. I would be more than thankful for any and all help that any one can give. One more thing, I am looking forward to being a member!!
