I have an old Remington 550-I the barrel is stamped that it is able to shoot   S,L,LR  I want to know if I try to shot the hotter rounds of ammo
such as stingers or others could it damage my rifle.

It shouldn't matter what kind of ammo you shoot out of it.  If there are any warnings though, you should be able to find them on Remington's web site.

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.

i shoot cci minimags out of my 50year old remington 514 singleshot.the power.22 rounds have isn't enough to domuch damage . looking at my rifle theres alost asmuch metal on it as  my .223 ...,oreimportantthen gaining a few fps s*itting what you shoot at. each rifle will shootbest with a certain ammo. buy several brands and carefully sight in . then hold your best shot groups. when you find that combo that works best, stick with it. don't fallinto the trap of more power must be better. i have abuddy that swears by his .44mag,but he can't hit hooey with it.

I have a model 60 Marlin that LOVES Stingers. on the other hand, my brother's 10/22 does not group them well. Yep, it depends on the gun. I had a High Standard Military that loved the Mini Mags, but I know that other guns would prefer a different fodder. If your rifle really likes the Stingers, I fully recommend using them. They are really deadly on small game, and I have sent a couple of curious coyotes to their promised land  while squirrel hunting, using Stingers. If you don't already know, you should see what a Stinger does to a small game head!
