So last Thursday I took the Model 60 to the Range to sight in my new scope. By the time I left, I was hitting 2 inch groups and had a blast. I also took my AR15 but I have to confess, the Marlin is more "fun" to shoot. I was using the Federal Bulk 550 pack found at Walmart. Not ONE single FTF or FTE. She was flawless and smooth as silk. But I do keep her clean to the nth degree. I always break her down and clean her thoroughly after use. So she rewards me with flawless shooting sessions. I also got to try out my Spee-D-Loader. Worked great. It holds 8 full pre-loads so that's about 112 rounds. It takes about 4 seconds to reload with that thing. I like it. I had a Marlin Model 60 for about 20 years but it slipped away in a divorce. I'm glad to have one back in the "arsenal". While it's not exactly the same, it's close enough to satisfy me. Well, that's my Marlin Model 60 report for now.
