My wife uses Federal Bulk in her 795. She's got 10 10-Round Factory Mags, and they all shoot just fine. 920 22LR Rounds have gone through the pointy end of that 795, and not a problem to date.

CONGRATS & Best of Luck!

Cheers!

Honestly.. I am happy with the rifle as is, right out of the box. It took a Bushnell scope and stays zero no problem.. and the 10 rounder mags function flawlessly. The upside on both the Marlin & Ruger is they are quality AMERICAN made guns.
...In that aspect, you can't go wrong either way!

Agreed. I bought one a few months ago and haven't got around to doing anything to it yet, aside from putting about 50 rds of cheap 22 though it. No malfunctions.
I was originally looking into finally buying a 10/22 but when I found the Marlin couldn't pass it up.

I have two Marlin 795's and they eat pretty much anything I put in them. Plus they are more accurate than most stock .22 rifle. The 10/22 is a good gun if you have $450+ to spend and want something very thick with reliable high-cap mags. But for that same amount of money I bought two Marlin 795's, several 10 round mags, a scope, a red dot sight, two soft cases and two slings. That's a lot of value for guns this reliable and accurate.

Just for info I saw some 25 rd mags on the ProMag site last night I think they were about $20. Have no idea how well they function. It didn't say they were on back order but I would assume they are.
I don't have any need for them just thought someone might.

My wife bought me a 795 last month for my birthday. I was very suprised at the accuracy this inexpensive rifle can produce. I put a Bushnell banner 3-9x40 AO scope with a BKL mount and added some weight inside the buttstock to balance the rifle out. I was hitting 4" clay targets at 150yds with no problem. I just need a few more factory 10 round mags and a rifle sling. Can't seem to find mags anywhere at a resonable price, saw some on ebay but the sellers were jacking up the price. I won't play that game.

I agree, I like both and I find that both are accurate but the Ruger can get you in trouble... $$$$ Too many accessories. I have a few of both and love shooting both. But at 50yds my Marlins are just a bit more accurate than my Rugers. I like building and working on and restoring both.
