It's been 20years since I set up my Remington 30-06, and either I've forgotten, or prices have taken off. Quality stuff, case bag, scope, base, rings, flip-ups, sling, buttstock ammunition carry, and I'm at 300 already.
Decided on a Redfield 2-7x33. Which has good reviews on midwayUsa. Btw YouTube has a good selection of informative videos by MidwayUsa. Lots of stuff, I had forgotten, and needed a refresher on, that the videos really helped with.
In 20 years prices have taken off.
Makes you wish you had bought more stuff 20 years ago. I know there were plenty I regret letting get away.
The value of your Marlin as defined in US dollars (Federal Reserve Notes) has increased due to the continuing devaluation of said Reserve Notes.
Have you priced ammo yet? Take a friend to catch you, if you have not.
I have been shooting 12 ga. Hornady SST slugs at about $12 for a box of 5 for years and assumed that was just unique to that load. Then I recently got back into rifle hunting and almost fainted when I went to buy a box of .35 Remington shells. Rumor is, Santa is bringing me a reloading press.

Well well welcome to the world 20 years in modern times lots have change some better some not so good
20 Years?...... You sure your name isn't Rip Van Winkle?
If you are as old as I am, You'd remember prices from 40 years ago.....Now, that's inflation!
On a more posative note your rifle is worth more than what you paid for it if it's in good shape and a wanted model! At worst you can still probably get what you paid for it!
