Re: Marlin 336-A (.35 Remington) - Scope advice
I think you're on the right track with the Leupold in terms of size, but I really wouldn't go with the VX-I. If that is you're absolute ceiling in terms of price, I would spend less and get a 2-7 Vortex Diamondback which is quite widely accepted to be a better scope than the VX-I. If you can spend a little more (~$260 I believe) you can get a Vortex Viper 2-7 and have very nice optics.
Another scope worth considering is the Fullfield II 2-7, which I believe can be had for around $150.
I personally feel that a VX3 1.75-6 x 32 would be just about the ideal scope for a 336, but I understand that is quite a bit more than than the scopes you are considering.
