Have taken my shorty Marlin 336 to the outdoor range twice now. Last trip was yesterday when the weather finally thawed out some. It's a stock gun, except for the William's "5-D" aperture rear-sight I had installed.
Astounded at how accurately the little carbine shoots. I fired it at an 80-yard range from off a sandbag at a rifle bench. Had three 3-inch groups, which was REALLY gratifying since I'm not a stellar rifleman, now or when I was a youngster.
Hoping I can improve on it when the warm weather gets here and I can experiment some more. Was shooting Winchester 150-grain jsp's. Ordered in some of Federal Cartridge's 125-grain jhp's to try, also.
