Default Hornady FTX In Marlin Lever Gun

I was at a local gun store the other day and was told that the FTX bullets don't feed well in the Marlin lever guns. I was looking for the projectiles for reloading.

Any advice?

Never heard of feeding issues, but several complaints of poor accuracy.
In life, strive to take the high road....It offers a better field of fire.
