I bought a Marlin 917V a few years ago. Paid $200.00 and put a 4-14x40mmAO
on it that I did not care for on my CZ527. It shot 17gr like crap, but liked 20gr. After a few hundred rounds, I tried 17gr again. Shot fantastic. It really likes Hornady label ammo. Just a fun round. It is not a replacement for .22lr. Bobby, What scope did you put on it??
