My .357 came in Friday but since I've been on call this week I didn't get to shoot it until yesterday. Paid 400 for it from some estate sale. Looks like it's been a safe most of the time. We took my nephew and his girlfriend shooting with us. This thing is very accurate. We stayed at 50yds and put clays on our shooting berm. It was no problem to shoot 10 for 10! After shooting the AR, everyone couldn't wait to shoot the Marlin again. It seemed a lot easier to hit with than the AR. Needless to say, I'm sure glad I reload. It feeds a lot smoother than my M92 which doesn't feed bad. We're going to try the 180 grainers today.
