I'm the happy new owner of a Marlin 22 magnum bolt action rifle with a beautiful wood stock, 4X bushnell rimfire scope with rings, and 100 rounds of 22 mag ammo.:D This is awesome, it should be a sweet set-up and I look forward to test firing it next weekend.:D Whoo-hoo!!:D

My birthday is in a few weeks, I've asked for a 4lb keg of Alliant powder, 1000 bullets in 180 grain 40 S&W and 2 boxes of primers. We'll see what happens.:D I'm addicted to reloading 40 S&W ammo, can't seem to stop.:D

My Marlin 25MBN in .22 magnum is amazingly accurate for such an inexpensive little carbine. 3" clay pigeons at 100 meters are as good as dead when in the crosshairs and even at 200 meters with no wind and a little holdover they are history as well!

I'm sure you will love it. Marlins typically shoot very well. I think maybe its the micro groove rifling.

Hope your primers are boxes of 1000, not 100 :) Should be able to load about 4000 rounds with 4lbs of powder. Great hobby, our relatives called and said they'be be about an hour late comming over, so I used the unexpected free time to load up 200 rounds or .45ACP, now noodling here waiting for their arrival :)
