I really love my Marlin lever action. Its kinda like an old friend, dependable and always comfotable. I am a bit saddened by its potential though. This round...is sold in such limited grains....150's or 170's. Now they have the 55 grain accelerator. I played with this round but its really a joke. It'll skin a groundsquirel at a distance but the problem is you have to crank down the site all the way and still hold under. Worse yet, this ammo is a single load because of the point and its brutally expensivde (about 20.00 a box!!!). If I had a wish come true I would like to see this "potentially" versital shooter have the option of 100 or 120 grain loads. If done right, i think it would be a natural for cyote and jacks given there distance. I have been to every show in ca., az. nv. and never saw anything but 150 and 170....does anyone reload a custom round here???
