Only working thru boredom!! Then its not worth bragging on and saying the marlin is waaay better than brand B with only one ammo reguardless of how many rounds fired means nothing. Most shooters have seen two rifles shoot very different group size with 2 very different bullets and brands. Even lot to lot number changes can have you looking for a different ammo. Just means someone is very proud of the marlin.
Bottom line if you like your marlin then good for you .
Im not tryin to upset or make a personal attack here dont take me wrong, but the marlins are proven to be every bit as accurate as the savages, but yes it all comes down to personal choice. Savage arms are a awesome value period as is the marlin, lets not rip on each other over the one thing we all here truely love an thats firearms.
