    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.

    i stepped it off it might not be exactly 200 yards

    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.

    I took the boys out today. It was a rimfire day. Once again my 60 performed like a champ. My 11 year old was hitting a 7" steel plate at 100 yards w/ the BSA .22 special scope it wears. It was a $29.00 3-9x32mm 10 years ago. While we were there a guy started shooting a 10/22 laminate. Can you say jam, jam, jam.....
    His rifle was scoped also. He left when my 11 year old started hitting the 7" plate at 100, he could not touch it. It must have been the pressure. :rolleyes:
    My little guy hit 4 of 5 w/ a M1969 Romanian trainer w/ iron sights(100 meter sights). He really made this guy feel bad when he hit 10 of 10 w/ the 60. We politely said goodbye as he went home.

    Tasco Golden Antler 3-9x32. It ain't nothing special but it serves it's purpose.

    I got a 60 for my high school graduation present... (funny I didnt get a 22 until I was 18, but got a .243 when I was 12)

    I have a bushnell 22 scope on it and it is the smoothest shooting squirrel popper I've ever shot. I have taken tree rats from 75 yards with it sitting in my deer stand.

    If you are at least 6' tall, yes, the average pace is three feet.

    If you are under 6' tall...it'll be slightly less.
