If so, the .308 needs to be loaded with RN or FN bullets. Tubular magazines don't do too well with pointed bullets.I know Winchester made a 307 years ago but it would be nice if Marlin/Ruger made a 336 in 308. I seen a picture of the new Marlin 336 classic from the 2023 shot show and it really looks nice, with nice wood and checkering. I went to Wally world yesterday to see if they had any 35 Remington on the shelf and about the only hunting ammo left was 308. They had 4 or 5 different manufactures and flavors in 308. That caliber would also cover a lot of bases especially in a 200 grain round nose bullet.
I only found one true classic lever action that can handle pointed bullets safely......the Winchester 1895.
