The squirrel was injured and we nursed it back to health, and the dang thing decided he had a new home. It was most unusual, because it was a full grown squirrel at the time. Our coyote was only about half grown, and wasn't sure what she was, seeing as how we bottle fed her, I guess. Things changed quickly when she grew up and started catching birds in her pen. She was a good pet for 8 years.

BC, which do you like better, the .17 HP, or the ballistic tip? I think the plastic tips do more damage, and have seen for myself that the HPs penetrate farther on hard stuff, believe it or not. I have a box of the new 20gr. HP, but haven't shot any game with them, yet.

I haven't tried anything other than the ballistic tip.  I've been happy with the performance and the accuracy of them.  I'm going to try to try to get some of the others this weekend and try them out when not hunting.  Since I'm off, Lord knows I'll have the time! :wink:  :wink:

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.

Tech, All I used were Stingers in my Marlin for squirrels and hunting. My Marlin loves the Stingers. Yep, they do a REAL job on squirrels and are devastating on rabbit heads, too. A stinger will almost take the rabbit's head clean off! I shot one in the back of the head a couple of years ago, and all there was left of the head was a patch of hide with some stuff stuck to it. Now I hunt with a .17 HMR, so my daughter is going to use my .22. And I already have a good supply of Stingers ready for her.

Tech, some advise that I got from some people here....   get as many different kinds of ammo as you can....  then go to the range one day and see what groups the best out of your rifle...

I tried it and found a few different kind of ammo....  so I have a few backups.....
good luck!!!!
oh and yes once you change ammo you do have to re-zero your scope....

Firekidd is absolutely right. Some rifles don't like the Stingers as far as grouping. My .22 does, my brother's Ruger 10/22 does not group them well.  Marlin rifles have great barrels, by the way,and Marlin set some industry standards with their Micro Groove barrel when they came out with it, my way of thinking. :D

another point...  if you have a barrel with a match chamber don't use stingers or aguila high velocity...  their cases are longer than normal LR cartridges and can damage the rifling....

there is another kind that has the long cases.... I don't remember what it is though......
but if you have a normal chamber, then there should be no problem...

HeavyChevy, the mod.60 is a great rifle! My daughter will be using mine this year. It LOVES Stingers, really groups them great. It's all I normally shoot in it. You can get a pretty good idea what the Stingers will do when you shoot a rabbit from behind, in the back of the head.  You will end up with a small piece of head hide left, with a little bit of gooey stuff stuck to it. The rest of the head is GONE! You already know what they do to squirrel heads. Old Indians really get off on this stuff, huh?
