Can a Marlin 336 or 1895 be converted to .307 Win?
Welcome to Jesse's forum. You have found the best place to gather intel, and shoot the breeze.
Do you mean .308 Win? I'm not sure that you can, but stick around and somebody will answer the queston.
I believe what he speaks of is the .307 Winchester that was chambered in a Model 94 lever action. I think it was called the Model 94 Big Bore. They started chambering it in the late 80's or early 90's ?? - It was basically a .308 with a rimmed case & flat or round nosed bullets to be used in the lever action. The action was beefed up to handle the higher pressures. The performance of the round fell somewhere between the .308 & the .30-30
The round really never caught on. I haven't seen Winchester chamber any rifles in it for the last 3 years.
Prowler 2, - WELCOME !!
This is just some info that I have read about this round. A friend of mine had one & he liked it. I don't know if the Marlin will handle the chamber pressures ?? - I am sure that some of the people here can help you. I think there is a gunsmith or two here.
Thanks, in all my reading I don't recall seeing that. Learn something new every day. It's just another reason to hang out here.....
I've never seen a gun chambered in 307 but I've seen the brass sold for it. That Winchester Big Bore was chambered in the 375 win & 1 or 2 other calibers but not sure which ones.
The other big bore for Winchester was the .356 ###
