So the other day I was replying to a thread here about Chicago gun laws and carrying on your property.

I noted that my uncle has said he has carried his ".307" for problem coyotes(he lives on a piece of land in a rural section.)

Now it occured to me several days later that I have never heard of a .307 gun, since I have never heard it discussed on the site.

So is there a such thing as a .307 gun? I'm thinking it might be a rifle of some type, or maybe he was incorrectly stating the caliber, since there is a such thing as .308.

IIRC, the .307 Win. was a rimmed version of the .308 designed for lever actions.

Maybe a 308 round fired from a 30.06 rifle?

I don't know. I'll have to ask him when I see him again, but it'll be a while, I don't see him that often.

I know he hunts, so it might be from a hunting rifle or shotgun.

flat pointed bullets on a rimmed cartridge, more OOPh than a 30-30.

So this might be like a Winchester rifle or shotgun? Since I know for a fact the Marlin 30-30 is a shotgun.

It's a lever action rifle.

It's a rifle.

My bad.

I did google Marlin and they have a 30-30 rifle. The shotties that they have are 12 gauges.

Google is amazing.

Levergun loads: a look at Winchester's ill-fated Big Bores

Marlin announced a 336 chambered for .307WIN but it appears that they never left the plant. The Win model 94 was the only one to ever go into production.

The "caliber" number in most cartridge designations is pretty approximate. .220 Swift, .221 Fireball, .222 Remington Magnum, .223 Remington, and a couple of others in ".224" and ".225" all use the same bullets, but for whatever reason the people who named the cartridges chose different numbers just for the hell of it.

Winchesters attempt to bring the 7.62x51R to this country as a lever rifle cartridge.

There has been a "flanged" version of .308/7.62 NATO around overseas for years, not that its very common, its for use in double rifles and Drillings/Trillings.

Even though it was long ago possible to build a multibarrel that would eject a rimless cartridge.

The .307 and .356 Winchesters didn't go over very well. They would have done better just pushing the .375 and bringing back the .45/70. Same results.

Winchester STILL hasnt brought out a .45/70 have they? Do they still make .375's?

I think some people are too lazy to Google.
