We were shooting Sat, he was using his 270 w/ a nice scope on a bench we were a little over 200 yards. And jokingly i said let me take a shot with my 22 w iron sights, standing up, shot 3 rounds. I had never shot that far and was sure my bullets were way off, nope lo and behold my grouping was about 4 inches, while his was low and all over the place. He couldnt believe it )) me either lol!!! Gotta love my Marlin!
