Recently have purchased a NIB 307 and was anxious to try the Hornady
160 GR FTX made for magazine guns. The powder was VARGET which
Hornady suggested. The results were really quite impressive in terms of
accuracy. I have heard that accuracy was one of the up sides to the
307, and with these Horady bullets and VARGET powder that is quite
true. Love my new 307. :)

I feel the same way about mine!
Welcome to the board. There are quite a few 307 Winchester shooters here.
The search engine will bring up lots of threads on the cartridge and rifles.
Did you shorten your cases slightly as suggested by Hornady?

First off, Welcome to the forum, While the .307 in a model 94 Winchester is great, I don't think I could get one to chamber in an 1894 Marlin. [You are in the 1894 Marlin thread.] You might get one of the moderators to move this thread over to the Winchester thread.

Like you I think you made a wise choice in caliber and rifle combination.

So it is! When I come on the board I usualy hit the “new posts” button so I seldom know which forum a post is in. This means I must resort to the search function to find a post.
Here are a few threads on the 307 Winchester to get you started. There are a number of 307 shooters on the board.
