But i like a lot of their bullets for reloading and hunting i just refuse to by their loaded ammo. Its not the only hornady factory ammo ive had trouble with in factory rifle loads. Their pistol ammo works well is very very accurate and shoots clean. Its like two different factories making their products. I use hornady for my defensive handguns.
Which Marlin you got , barrel length ? At 75 1 1/2" group ? 1895 and the GS.!
Like me , my guns , and I love DIRT Glocks , Marlins , etc. , etc. !
With (BI-POD) 100 , 1 1/2" - 2" with 22" barrel (1895) ? FXTs' 325 gr. ?
Don't got the short range Ooomph , of the 405 , but does have the velocity !
