With a .22, as long as you've got groups the size of a squirrel's head at about 50 yds, I'd say that it's OK. :D   I think everyone will agree, "Tighter Is Better"! :D  :D  :D

With my .17 HMR, it can shoot dime-sized 5 shot groups at 100 yds. (well actually, the gun can shoot better groups, it's user error that makes them dime-sized).  All I can say is that you need to burn more powder there Firekidd, which I'm sure won't be too much of a problem! :D

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

well, right now at 50 yards from a rest , my best groups are quarter sized groups with a flyer that is my fault....  
so I'm going to go practice some more and try some more tests now that the barrel is a little more broken in.....

Your barrel will probably shoot better when you shoot it enough to get it dirty, after the break in shoot/clean routine. It sounds like you made a good choice on the barrel.

Firekidd, those are pretty impressive groups, and shooting, too. Squirrelslayer, you made a good choice there. No use feeding the bugs in the timber. Four lb. bass is pretty impressive for me, too.
