    Cool Marlin xs7vh 22-250 vs....

    Any opinions on the Marlin 22-250. I definitely want a 22-250 rifle, but do not want an inaccurate rifle. The price on these seems to be good, but if I cant get at least .5-1 moa I am not interested.

    Anybody have one in 22-250 that would like to comment?


    P.S I have a x gun in .270 that is a nice shooter, but a 22-250 must be really accurate for me to be interested.

    That is an unanswerable question for what you are really after...
    I have an XL7 in 25-06 that with certain handloads is sub-MOA. The bit of factory I've tried, and some handloads, No.
    Brother in-law has the same rifle. His struggles with most handloads, but LOVES Remington Cor-Lokt ammo.

    Does that make ALL X7's Sub-MOA guns?

    If you want a garantee, several makers offer that; but you will have to spend more than $275.
    I'm a firm believer in the theory that "If it bleeds, I can kill it"

    The XS7VH is a Remlin and the jury is still out on quality. I too want one but I'm not giving my hard earned money for junk.

    My Brother in-laws is a Cerberus rifle, or Remlin as you call them. It still shoots, honestly his barrel internals were smoother than my JM barrel FWIW.

    your right Hemi,it is a remlin.But,lets not forget that remington has been making some of the most popular bolt guns for decades.They've got that down.They have never made lever guns,and that is painfully obvious.As with any american production ,its all about building cheaper to save/make more money.This is also apparent.I will say that last year I sold my remington sps bull barrel 22-250 for $500 and im still kickin myself.That gun could put 5 inside a quarter at 100yds all day long.I guess what im saying is,I have no interest in buying one of their levers,but my kentucky made xt-17 is one of my favorites

    I would think this as well but they did give people the 710 and 770. That's what worries me.

    They built those piles of junk to phase out the 788 the rifle that embarrassed remington because they built a budget rifle that out shot their expensive model 7.

    I was also considering a Weatherby Vanguard Series 2, or a Remington 700 vls in 22-250, but if this Marlin was accurate I would save some money.

    I have heard that the savage axis is accurate but the bolt is way to stiff to open, and I like the feel of the Marlin better.

    Has anyone shot the winchester 100 round value 22-250 through one?

    What kind of accuracy did you get?

    Comparing your first question to this one, I think you may have wandered down the wrong path....
    You first wanted to know if Marlin factory guns are 1/2 minute shooters, Now you are asking about shooting cheap bulk ammo....
    If ANY gun, will shoot 1/2 minute with bulk plinking ammo, you should dance a jig and take your wife to dinner.
    Bulk plinking ammo certainly CAN be that accurate... But you won't see Millitary/LEO snipers using when the shots have to count.

    Howa makes nice rifles(which is who makes the Vanguard), they are basically a 700 knock-off built in Japan.
    Remington is another of Cerberus' companies(like Marlin), they make nice rifles as well.
    Savage has made some accurate guns. The "hype" behind Savage's accuracy that everyone "knows" comes from the post bankruptcy years, when they were in the position that Marlin(X7's) is in now. For the amount of money spent, relative to the alternatives, they are very accurate. For half the price, you didn't give up half the accuracy. Now CAN they make a turd? Well who doesn't?? Which would upset you more: 1/2 priced Marlin that didn't group, or a Double the price rifle that didn't group?

    Pick which one feels the best to you, and who's function/features you like; then be happy with your choice.
    At least around here, I can buy an X gun; re-barrel if needed(already have the Savage wrench) and STILL have paid less than the price of a Remington.

    I asked the same question that you did before I bought my remlin 22-250. Darkker helped to put the "budget rifle" idea in perspective and put my mind at ease about these marlins about a week before I ordered mine. When spending my money, I have high expectations for a rifle. It's one of those "I will prolly wish I spent the extra $200 on a better rifle" feelings. I went ahead and bought the gun with the budget rifle idea in mind. I put a vortex scope on mine and she will shoot right under an inch at 100 with the cheap win white box ammo. Shooting hornady superformance it shoots as tight or maybe a bit tighter. I recently started reloading since I moved to Iowa so I will see if that helps improve even more. I bought one and my buddy bought one the same week and we both had the same results. In my opinion it is worth it for the price. So far I love it bit coyotes don't hah. Hope that helps
