Re: Another Marlin model 60 problem
Remington is not my favorite. This year I have had two burns from hot brass that has inexplicably gotten flung at me from weird angles. One came out of the ejector and went over the top of the rifle and down my left sleeve. I don't know if those are lighter than other manufacturers' brass casings or if it's just freak coincidence, it's kind of funny though. Between that and the shameful amount of duds, I've been looking for other brands even though the quality goes down when quantity goes up. I don't usually want hollowpoints either, I don't see any reason for using them on paper targets (my favorite pastime). The Remingtons are also hated by my Smith & Wesson pistol, but not as much as the Marlin hates those rounds. I'm really glad it's not me or the gun, other than the fact that I'm kind of cheap and look for the cheapest ammo, heh.
