Default Marlin Model 60

Well I put about 100 rounds through the ol' .22 yesterday. Most of it was just plinking around but I did use my last target with it. So I have a pic of it and one of my model 60. I've had this .22 since I was 15 and i couldn't ask for a better rifle this thing has always been there and performed the way it should. Marlin knew what they were doin when they built these. So have your self a look and enjoy.

200 yards? Really? That's some good shooting and one heck of a .22.

Isn't it for every step multiply by 3?

Every step is approximately one yard. Ten steps, ten yards/thirty feet, give or take.

Well I do weird math I counted about 200 steps then multiplied that by three (cause I know 1 step is aprox. 3 feet) then I know three feet is one yard but like you said lol.

At any rate a 22 getting groups like that at say....175 (Your steps off surly got you that far) yards is good shooting. I used to have one of those. Darn good rifles those Mod 60's are.

Ive had my model 60 since I was ten years old, just recently put a 4 x 32 bushnell scope on from our friends at Midway USA and it will shoot penny size groups at 25 yards.
