I have an old Marlin 336CS that my mom and dad bought me as a teenager. I have never taken a deer with it, but I want to. Can someone recommend a good round as far as accuracy goes! I really though about the Hornady Leverevolution, but I have heard some bad reviews. Any ideas?

Leverevolution shoots great out of my marlin. I can get 1.5 MOA all day. Does a fine job on deer as well.

Not sure how many deer I've taken with these?? My Marlin will shoot 1.5 to 2 inch groups with em all day long.It's not unusal for me to put a few right on top of each other.Most the deer drop where thier shot.

I couldn't get the Hornadys to group out of my 336Y. So I went back to 170gr Winchesters. But i have heard others who had great results with the Hornady. I got half a box of them you can have and try.

Nobody can tell you what will be accurate in your individual rifle. Buy some ammo and see how it shoots. Every rifle is an individual. Some are fairly accurate with many loads. Some of these will shoot many loads to about the same point of impact while others will shift all over the target every time you change loads - but still give decent accuracy with all the loads. Bottom line is that you have to try it in YOUR rifle. Not exactly fun at the cost of ammo these days but that's how it is. \:\)

I just use winchester super X power point 150gr, the cheap loads, won't shoot much past 100 but that's mainly because I don't get to practice much. Have killed 2 deer with these loads so far, 8 yards and 15-ish yards
