The best shooting dirty-dirty I've seen, shot, or owned is my Glenfield Model 30A Absolute tack driver, never any failures of any kind. I think it was made in 1974. I have experience with the New Marlin 336 also and not a thing wrong with them either. The top eject Winchesters in my experience we all great rifles for putting meat on the table. The Hornady ammo made the 30-30 SO much better IMHO
