Well I finaly sighted in my marlin 30/30 lever action rifle over the holliday season. First from about 25 yards, then 50, 75 and at 100yards hit the target dead center, must of been luck. I shot off 22 rounds, some just to get use to the gun, it was alittle louder than I thought it was gonna be but no where as loud as my cousins sks. After I got done target praticing I packed up hopped on the 4 wheeler to retrieve my target, look to my right and see 6 doe watching me. After all that racket you would think they wouldn't stick around but they did. Did watch them through my scope, one was of pretty good size and was going to shoot but the direction was towards the other field which has cattle, nothing woulda happened but did not want to chance it. Going to try again this weekend. By the way I have a savage 270 bolt action with bushnell scope coming, what do yall think of this gun.
