Well......I took Swany's and others advice and went cool and slow on my groups today at the range. I shot from a bench with the fore end held in hand rested on sand bag and butt in shoulder. I have removed the 'telescope' (6-24) I started with last week and put on my hunting Tasco World 1.5-4.5 with 3 screw rings.<BR><BR>Well.....without reservation........I am more than pleased....happy...ecstatic how the new Remlin performed with a little low power hunting scope on..........It also shot the cheaper PPU 150 and Herter 150 very well.....but the Winchester 150 was tops at 100 and 200 yds.<>

Glad your happy.:congrats:

As Townsend Whelen said; "Only accurate rifles are interesting." Looks like you got a real interesting rifle there!

Quiet, could you tell us more about that last picture? Did a lot of groups horizontally string like that? Was that a later group where the barrel had heated up a bit?

Good shooting! :congrats: I suggest replacing the high rings with something better to move the scope closer to the bore and you will probably see even better long range accuracy.

Long ago story. Big boss came to West Texas. Local trooper who was a friend from days gone by, picked him up at the airport in a new Plymouth (ugh) cruiser. Boss asked the old hand how he liked the Plymouth. Old hand replied thusly. "Well, Homer, it is kind of like dating a prostitute. You may have the best woman in town, but you are ashamed to be seen with her. That's kind of like driving a
Plymouth!"

That resembles packing a (ugh) Remlin.

Funny story. But what is wrong with dating a prostitute? The olden times cowboys married prostitute and was proud to have them too.

If a marlin design rifle made by Remington is all I can get I would own it proudly. The way I see it if not for Remington carrying the torch than who, Rossi? Or maybe made in Japan for $1200.

quiet I like high rings and cheek weld goes out the window in the real world where in the bush and fast moving game is the concern. Have you every tried getting a cheek weld with a winter coat on and a deer not waiting for you to get that exact cheek weld? Medium to high rings work for me and if they work for you go with it.
