Congrats on the XLR. They are real shooters with that LeverEv ammo. Incredible.
Only thing I didn't like at first was the laminate stock. Kinda greyish and odd looking to me at first. I was over it in no time flat though. Not an issue anymore...especially after firing that first group...
Congrats on the new rifle. I don't think you can go wrong with any Marlin 30-30. What kind of ammo were you using? I have a regular 336W and it loves the Federal 170gr round nose $10 box cheapo rounds. Couldn't be happier with it.
