Default .22 Magnum

Hi, was thinking of getting a .22 magnum rifle. I already have a henry lever action and now i want a magnum... Which rifle do you guys prefer? I was looking into the Marlin 925m...... Is that a good rifle? I will be using this rifle for target practice at the range.

Marlin's 925M is a VERY solid platform, but the better one for Paper/Steel Targets is the Marlin 982-VS

The Heavy Barrel on the's unbelievably precise & helps resist heat from prolonged firing

However, the 925M is also capable of One-Ragged-Hole groups at 75 yards,
so it ain't nothing to sneeze at either.

I've got a Marlin 25MN that regularly drops 'yotes, and I love it madly
It was the reason I started collecting Marlin rifles...high precision in an inexpensive rifle!!
Gotta LUV Marlins!!

My friend has the model 982VS and it's a sweet shooter, if I had the chance to get it cheap i'd be all over it. I love .22 mags.

Since you already have a Henry 22 look at their mag ,I have both and my H001M is my go to with a decent scope I've taken varmints out to 150 yrd no problem. Use Win X 40 grhp and it will knock the snot out of a fox or GH. Unless if you still want a bolt action gun a Henry will get the job done !!
