    Got my lay a way out from the pawnshop today. Marlin 30AW in 30/30 . Basically a less expensive version of the 336. Birch wood stock, post front bead sight, crossbolt safety. Came with scope mount and a Tasco scope made in Japan. Manufactured in 1990 so its not a Remlin! LOL. Has a cheap sling for now but that's subject to change in the future. Rubber butt pad with the Marlin horse and rider emblem in it. A bit rough but a very serviceable utilitarian rifle. $200.00 OTD!

    And .30-30 can fire cast-lead bullets and are easily reloaded. They will even shoot black powder!

    Well, yes and no. 30 30 Winchester was one of the first smokeless power loads. Don't know for sure if any black powder load data is out there for it .

    Sure, there are BP loadings for 30:30 Winchester... I like 50 Grains of FFF BP under a 130 grain Jacketed Flat-nosed Projectile.... I worked that up 50 years ago, when I first got into BP, learning with Ted Fellows as my proctor... Really pissed off the “Fish & Feathers Guys” when they tried to pinch me for using a “Modern” FireArm... My Model 1894 with BP Loads fit the definition, even back then...
