I have only ever hunted out in the northeast, where 30-30 is quite the solid deer round. K31/7.5x55 has greater range, accuracy, energy. Though the rifle is 2lb heavier.
In shorts there any material advantage that the 336 has over the K31?
(I imagine ammo selection/availability is one...for now at least)
Much obliged,
Naw go with a Modern Sporting Rifle(AR-15) in a deer caliber like 6.5MM Grendel. It will be fun, effective and annoy the hell out of your Liberal friends.
