LOL Its gonna have to do until after Christmas is over then I will have some extra cash for something a little bigger powered scope , I would like to have something with MIL dots in it
Sorry again anyways. An older Trophy you say. I have an older Trophy on a .22wmr, been there for 18 (?) years. I liked the amber glow optics for low light. It has been excellent. The other one was purchased about 3 years ago and although it looked the same, it did not perform as expected. It now sits on a Marlin 917V. Works fine on that rig for shorter distances out to 120 yards.

Cool. I always like a lot of options. I kinda want a standard barrel rather than a heavy barrel for this gun though. I have been kinda looking at the Weatherby Vanguards a little bit too.

mrb, they have it in the sporter barrel too, camo stock, stainless steel too. check out the Marlin website for the different options.

mulie, you back from hunting? i know what you mean about the Marlins, i have three myself and plan on adding some more in the future. they are IMO, one of the best entry level rifles, that doesn't act like one, accurate, adjustable triggers, well made and finished. not what a person would expect from a budget rifle. Marlin hit a homerun on the X7 series of rifles.

from what I am seeing online, they only have the 22-250 in the heavy barrel. That wouldn't be terrible though. I would be used to the weight as I shoot a sendero for a hunting rifle

I put the laser bore sighter in and it was pretty close so about 1/2 turn on each knob and the dot was in the cross hairs . Now to just get out there. It has been windy as all get out the past week 15-30 mph winds so no fine tuning today either
