Marlin for comp.

Not much in the way of matches at my local range. I do shoot USBR e-mail matches and I thought it would be nice to kick some butt with a Marlin mod 60. So I modified one a little bit for benchrest. I shortened, rechambered, and recrowned the barrel. I also free floated the barrel by connecting the tube mag. to the stock instead of the barrel. The stock was also modified to ride the bags better. I worked on the trigger but it still sucks. I took it out once and the best I could get with it was a 247 10x with Wolf MT. I know it has a 250 in it.
