I've got an older (1972) Marlin Glenfield 60 but have never shot anything other than standard velocity .22 ammo in it. Do any of you shoot the CCI mini-mags? I assume that the action can handle the CCI mini-mag ammo ok...
Any standard or high velocity ammo will be ok. But, the hyper vel stuff like Stingers and Aguila super hyper (1750fps) can damage the recoil buffer. The buffers are available, last time I looked, at MidwayUSA for about $9.00 each.

Mine just loves the cci hi vel stuff. And I used to have a different 60 years ago that was a nail driver with Stingers. I never damaged a recoil buffer but a friend of mine who had (model # ?) a Marlin semi auto that looked like a carbine length 60 cracked his buffer in half. But he beat his up over many years of shooting. Have is repairable. In fact you might want to check the buffer anyway. My friend's rifle worked perfectly until he decided to clean it one day and the buffer fell apart in his hand.

You may want to order an extra to have on hand just in case.
