Whether it is in .30-30 or .35 Remington, the Marlin 336 is a lever-action rifle that strikes a balance between firepower, handling, balance and portability, all of which are important for the deer hunter hiking out into the woods. It is a classic that has helped many hunters bring a whitetail home. Most use it for more than just lever-action nostalgia’s sake.
An AR-style rifle chambered in 300 BLK, the Rock River Arms LAR-15M 300 AAC is begging for a suppressor. Keep ranges to around 100 yards and use 125- to 135-grain for proper ballistics. The suppressor with a .300 BLK means you are less likely to spook other deer, and the free-floating barrel will assist with accuracy. The Coyote Carbine model is light at 7.2 pounds, offers M-LOK rails and makes for great follow-up shots as a semi-automatic.
