Just inherited a Marlin 336 in 35 Reminton from my brother's father-in-law. He was a sweet guy and I miss him. We always talked shooting, and so in the end I got his guns. My question, the 200gr Core-Lokt rounds I got with this rifle, are they good against black bear? What is the effective range, 150 yards?
And in general, what's the scoop with the Marlin 336? I've heard only good things. Strong rifle? Good rifle? Thanks.
