    MicroGroove rifling is supposed to be ok with cast up to about 1600. After that I understand it falls off pretty bad.

    Rick as far as your Marlin, i get somewhat better groups from my old winchester 1892 in .25-20 at the 50 yd distance. Not too bad at 25 yds but things fall apart out to 50 yds. BUT like has been said keep searching for different loads. My loads have gotten a lot better in my 92 when i went to 60 gr jacketed bullets from hornaday.

    very limited sample. my worst shooting Winchester is better than my best marlin. just the way it worked out. i like shooting everything i own just that Winchesters are at the front of the safe. also all my Winchesters are over 100 years old, don't know what that means, just gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. know what i mean?

    I know exactly what you mean. Reverence would be an apt adjective. Something I cannot feel for plastic and stainless steel or black rifles.
