It always amazes how accurate my Marlin .444 XLR is. Mine is stamped JM and shoots like a dream with the factory load it was designed around. When I do my part 1 MOA is no problem. Here is part of a target I shot at 200 yards today. In all fairness this was part of a six shot group that was actually 2.37 MOA. These were shots 1, 3 and 4 out of the six, but I am pretty sure it was me not the Marlin that created the "flyers." Regardless I am preparing for a cow elk hunt and this is a very small "Minute of Elk."
