Just got my 450 Marlin. Sign me up for the team. Went to the range today, I was using factory 350 gr., Iron sites, I put 30 rounds thru a 6" target at 50 yards. Great gun! I am so confident in this gun, it's going on a bear hunt in Oct. I plinked away at a 200m target with 5 rounds. A couple of guy's gathered around to watch, I think they just liked the noise it made. I had a blast!
