Have not had good enough weather/time to shoot the Marlin yet. Yes I do reload. Have some cast 160's and Trailboss loaded. Some more cast 160 with 3 different powders to test. Got some 125 Sierra RNFP to load. And finally some 135 gn Acme cast to try out too.
A cast 160 gn dummy cartridge.
The Golden Boy has always been amazingly accurate. Even with my old eyes, I can plink pretty well at 25 yards. Not much further. Hence the addition of a scope.
