America's love affair with the 30
caliber rifle cartridge has been
going on for more then 100 years.
More big  game is shot each year
with 30 caliber rifles than all other
caliber rifles combined.
The  30/30 Winchester, 300 Savage,
300 H&H,  30-06, and 308
Winchester are just a few of the
many 30 calibers available.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Now Hornady and Marlin are adding
a new cartridge to the 30 caliber
line-up, and showing the world that
maybe shorter is better.
Basically the 308 Marlin Express is
a shortened 308 Winchester, or
shortened 307 Winchester Rimmed,
with a large Rimmed Head.
I would presume the large rimmed
head would function better in the
lever action rifle  and also so you
cannot chamber the 308 Marlin
Express in the 308 Winchester, and
you can't chamber the 308
Winchester
in the 308 Marlin  Express, which
would not be a good  idea as the
Marlin Express is .10" shorter than
the 308 Winchester.

Hornady and Marlin are claiming that the 308
Marlin Express performance rivals the 308
Winchester, but with less recoil, enhanced
terminal performance of the Evolution TM
bullet featuring Flex TipTM Technology
160 Grain Projectile at 2660 Feet per Second
2,513 Foot Pounds of Energy
should do the job on most big game!
