Re: What's The Story on JAG Brass? Any Good?

Seems to be quality to me. When I bought last year, it was a good deal. I bought .357 and .44 Mag. I have only loaded .357 so far multiple times no issues. I also liked it was a Wisconsin product = quality. :)

Re: Let's Have Elmer v. Jack Redux....

Like Sixgun said. Maybe that's why I choose the 300 Savage for most of my Deer hunting? A little more than the 30-30 and a little tamer than the 06, and still a 30 caliber.

Re: Why I won't buy a Marlin 336 ......

A fun project for you, would be to fit it to your liking with a rasp and refinish, custom for you. There was a long gone gun writer/hunter named Francis Sell who lived I think in the Pacific Northwest. He hunted with his custom fit to him Marlins and wrote about it from time to time in the Gun Digest.
