Default 30-30 rifle

I had a marlin 30-30 years ago that I killed my first and many other deer with. Later on in life I sold it. I never really liked the winchester 94' s so I thought about getting another marlin. But now I read all this about ' micro groove' rifling. What is this? I' ve heard people say that they don' t get good accuracy with it.

Does anyone have an opinion about micro groove rifling?
Maybe I should just get a handi-rifle in 30-06?

I' m mainly looking for an inexpencive deer rifle. Like under 300 bucks or so. And one with a wood stock.

I have a marlin 336w with Micro grooving and I can shoot 2" groups with it. Doesnt seem to hurt the accuracy.

micro groove is simply a marketing gimmick....It' s neither good or bad...the Marlins shoot good anyway and the issue of micro groove means just many more lands and grooves.....there fore smaller.

If you liked your first Marlin, you' ll like another one just as well.

Get the handi rifle in 30/06. Then you can add extra barrels. Even a 12 guage for turkeys. A 223 for groung hogs. You get the idea.

Microgroove barrels are plenty acccurate, at least with jacketed bullets. Some people have insisted they are not good with cast bullets, but other folks have had good results with these too in microgroove barrels.

got a older brother that hunted when he was my age 16 and then quite hunting and sold his gun to help pay for a car. well he is 25 now and started back up hunting. he owned a 30-30 and loved it. but this yr when he started back up he bought a ruger stainless steel 243. and he likes it but says he is going to buy a 30-30 because he loved that gun. i shot one too and think they would be a good gun to carry when brush hunting. i sapose thats why they call it a brush gun. haha
