I guess I am different..

I like the tube feed. I don't like feeding through the gate on the Marlin 30/30..

1) It usually takes some wedging and cramming to get the rounds through the gate and into the tube. I was always concerned that the seating & crimp of the bullet may be affected.

2) I didn't like shucking all the cartridges through the action to unload the rifle.

But that's just me... Some like Pepsi, some like Coke..
