I am new to shotguns and just received mine, but I am uncertain which ammo I need for home self defense.
I was trying to get through the jungle of different ammunition, but it is impossible.
Can someone please tell me which I need?
Maybe brand , # Shot, oz, FPS.
Thank you very much.
Picked up a couple lever guns recently. Here is the first one.
Looks like a standard Marlin 336 in 30-30 with a ugly scope and see thru rings. First off I took the scope and rings off. I do need to find plugs so the screws don't stick up. The reason this is an oddball is because this model was only made for about 3 years from late '79 till about '83. This is a Marlin 375 in .375 Winchester. You just do not see many of these around anymore. One of the nice things about .375 Winchester is that you can also shoot Buffalo Bore .38-55 in it.
The next one is a Marlin 336 but in .44 Mag. I also picked up a Ruger Redhawk in .44 Mag to go with the Marlin.
