You have touched on one of my soft spots. Nothing beats a good lever action rifle in the field.

The 308 Marlin Express fits your needs but will it be like the 307 Winchester and disappear after a few years in any ones guess right now.

The 30-30 will take elk. Using the 170 grn bullets and with proper shot placement I would go after an elk. The Hornady LeverEvelution ammunitoin is very imprssive and it take the 30-30 out to an extra 100 yards and would work on elk also.

There have been a few Savage Model 99s in 308 poping up on KSL Classifies lately. I grew up hunting deer with on and they are nice but getting harder to find.
