They also make one in Stainless, 336 SS. In the Old Dominion of Virginia, stainless is great in this wicked humid clime.

They are a Classic and have been doing the job on most mid-sized game for a long time.

They have been traditionally been considered a 100-150 yard rifle because they keep the bullets underneath the barrel in the tube, and because the bullets are stacked nose to tail, they need to be rounded so not to set off the one in front.
However, Hornady have figured out that they can make a pointy spitzer-style by placing a little piece of plastic on the tip that won't set off the one in front because it is obviously softer that hard metal. This new pointy nosed bullet has been claimed to be able to take it out to a 200+ rifle.

In addition. they are built to last.

have a great day,

Marlin does have 2 different types of rifling and that is mainly because of the Cowboy matches. The MicroGroove has many smaller lands and grooves that work very well with jacketed bullets, but doesn't work for cast bullets. So Marlin also makes the Ballard rifling which is the standard rifling found in most rifles and pistols. It has fewer, but larger lands and grooves to help control cast bullets. It also works well for jacketed bullets.
