My new Marlin 795 comes out of CA holding in a few days. Any suggestions on ammo to break in the rifle? Not sure if it's needed but I know some guns they recommend it. Or any other gotchas?

I shoot 10 rounds then run a patch down the barrel then 10 more then a patch so on and so forth for a hundred rounds or so then you should be pretty well good to go with your rimfire. Enjoy!

Any high (not hyper) velocity ammo should do fine. I have two 795s and they both function well with CCI Standard Velocity also. Other than hyper velocity, the only ammo the manual recommends against is Remington Thunderbolts.

Good luck and good shooting.

Interesting;
Now that it is Rermlin/Marlington.... I wonder if they still recommend against Remington Thunderthuds ?
