    That is correct for mailing a long gun to someone else. It is not correct if you are sending it to yourself for hunting. I mail rifles to Alaska to myself and back to myself . It's easier than taking them thru multiple airlines. ...

    The 6.5 JDJ is based on a 225 Winchester so a 30/30 Marlin would have the proper extractor. The issue is proper bullets for a tube mag. I don't believe Marlin even made a Model 336 in a .444 Marlin. It had it's own model designation of model...
