I have not been able to get out and shoot in quite a while. Finally had some free time and decided to take out a couple of new to me guns that I have not shot yet.  

Loaded up the truck and grabbed my Marlin 336 in .44 mag, Marlin 375 in .375 winchester and my Ruger Redhawk.  I was mainly just trying too get the iron sights to hit point of aim at 50 yards.  

I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the 336 in .44 mag is quite accurate.  Had a lot fun ringing the steel at varying yardage, mainly from 40-60 yards.  I didn't have my shooting glasses so iron sights can be a bit of problem if I am much farther than 50 yards.

The Marlin 375 I think is going to be a great deer gun.  I was shooting Buffalo Bore .38-55 from a rest and keeping 3" groups with iron sights was a breeze.  I will be a good walking in the woods gun where you need quick shots and medium distances.  I might put a low power scope on it and see what it can do at longer distances but have not decided yet.

Shooting the Redhawk in single action was great for ringing the steel.  Lets just say I need a lot of practice shooting it double action. lol

Looks like good fun. So just one question, why did you drill holes in your steel targets, some thing to shoot for?:bowrofl:

If a shot doesn't ring, you just yell out "bullseye!" and no one is the wiser.

Never knew Marlin made a 375. Do you reload for it?

They only made the Marlin 375 for about 3 years from late ‘79-‘82. I don’t reload for it. You can shoot .38-55 and 375 Winchester through it. I am not planning on shooting it a ton so I will just buy Buffalo Bore ammo for it.

Yep, the .375 Winchester is a rare caliber in Marlins. Another is .356 Win. that was in the 336 ER. Nice rifles and Ruger. 😀

Take some white spray paint to that steel and you can see where you are hitting it a lot easier.

the .375 is a good woods hunting round.

Nice rifles and pistol!

Someone ain't using AR500 plate looks like. Air craft tires make really nice target hangers. Conveyor belts work good too.

They are ar500 but the ones rated for pistols.  Some dumbass decided to shoot it with .300 win mag FMJs.  :whistle:

They are thick rubber strips that came with the kit.  The kit consisted of the three resetting targets on top and the one hanging target. It also came with the brackets for the legs.  You supply the 4x4 and 2x4s for the legs.
