Re: Another Marlin model 60 problem
I've had poor luck with those big bulk boxes of Federal .22LR ammo too. Lots of dead primers in the few times I've used em. Won't even bother with trying them anymore.
If you can find em, look for the Remington Game Load bricks when shopping for cheap stuff. It's pretty much the same load as the hollow point Thunderbolt except has a plated bullet. I've had good luck with em in my semi-autos.
And +1 for what ponycar posted about the Marlin semis being fussy about a cruddy action. Keep em cleaned and the bolt raceways pretty much swimming in oil and they work fine.
