FWIW, That "Marlin in .308" ISN"T the .308 Winchester - it's a rimmed, lower-powered version (a kinda .30-30 on steroids) , the .308 Marlin.

.
From what I've read, with the proprietary powders and loading techniques Hornady is using, the 308 Marlin Express (with FTX bullet) is a lot closer to a 308 Winchester than a 30/30. Reports give it 2650fps with the 160gr FTX, which puts it just slightly above the 307Win and 300 Savage, and just below the 308.
