i've been dreaming about what to do with my tax return, and had been thinking about picking up a 338win, but today i got the idea that i should maybe look at the marlin options. i don't really know the difference in their three big rounds - 444, 450, 45/70 - i just like the idea of a short, sleek gun. i was thinking that if i got one, i'd go with a receiver peep sight, keeping it simple and quick.
what is a reasonable expectation for comfortable shooting range on these? or would i be better off going with a 338?
