    As Wayne said, shot placement. One fall I shot prairie dogs for 6 days in Wyoming and was practiced up enough that I got a nice muley with a shot in th ear with a 55 gr .223 @ just over 200 yards.

    The problem you face is micro-grove rifling in the Marlin which requires a fatter bullet....I order 200 gr RF from Casting Machine in .432 add in 10 gr Unique and the gun runs flawless......good luck on a great gun.

    Anytime you reduce the size of a boolit the lead will flow into a void first (grease grooves) which will reduce the size of the grease grooves. Which reduces the amount of grease that the grease grooves can hold. Standard belief is: Boolit should...

    PJ my better half hates it when she tells a doctor what is going on and they dismiss her! Your daughter knows her body and its problems and I would encourage her to find a more sensitive doctor. Still praying for you and your daughter! Paul

"The .30-06 is never a mistake." Townsend Whelen

"THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph."
Thomas Paine
