My Marlin #60 jambs up. I've only shot about two hundred rounds out of it, and it's only 10 years old. I shoot 36 grain remmy hollow points, could it be
the ammo?

Hi T-bone
Could you tell us more then jams up? what is it doing? it could be allot of things but we need to know how it is jamming up.Is it extracting? is it not feeding?

Remington ammo is the pits. If it's stove piping you can just about bet its the ammo. Get some good ammo and try it. If it still jams it may be time for a deep cleaning.

Hi Goofy. The spent shell don't make it out, it gets caught between the "frame" i guess
and the next round that's halfway in the barrel. I gotta pry out the round in the barrel
first, before the spent round falls out. I did try some winchesters a few minutes ago
without a problem, so Hawg, you were right. Remington ammo isn't compatible for my #60

barrel cause it's held back by the "just ejected/jambed spent round

Thorough cleaning, especially the chamber then try some plated RN 40 gr bullets, CCI, Eley, Federal, doesn't really matter but not the bulk ammo. Make sure its not the ammo before you get carried away with doing something drastic.

Some guns just do not like certain ammo so if your guns works good with one kind and not another stick with that kind.
If you have trouble with it no matter what you are using that is different.

I shoot bulk in all 3 of my Marlin 60's. Federal, Remington and Winchester ammo with no problem. Just lucky I guess. Problems I've had in the past always turned out to be issues with the gun but I have other weapons that very clearly don't cooperate with just any brand.
