Exceeded? Hmm, that's a tough one because I usually obsessively research guns know what to expect before I buy them. But, my wife won a .17 HMR Marlin in a raffle (model 917?) with a bull barrel, decent wood stock and bluing. Thing impressed me, absolute laser beam out to 100. Popped many the beaver and ptarmigan brain with that thing on the tundra and the river. Too bad it's been neglected (well, just not shot much) for years. Runner up is my wife's Ruger Vaquero in .357. She wanted a "pretty" gun and she picked that in stainless. Darned thing is so fun she bought me one so I'd stop hogging hers.
