I shoot them out of my .45/70 Guide Gun and they'll shoot a 3 shot, clover leaf (albeit a big one) off of the bench. Apparently the rifling in the older Marlins don't do well with them? Don't know for sure but I think I heard that about them.
Yep, been shooting them out of my Marlin since they hit the market. Gives you a 200 yard range, but I can't seem to get them to pattern very tight. For a while I thought it was my scope, but I've about decided that my gun just doesn't like 'em. Let me know what you turn up.
Thanks to all, I will try them, but from what I've read here,they may not group good. I bought my 336 new in 1970. It will shoot 1 inch group at 100 now with 150gr. original Barnes X, but I can't get them now. The new ones are called Triple Shock.
they shot terrible in my 336 30-30 and in the 35 rem. Both were just beyond belief. Both rifles have micro groove riflingin and shoot Rem Green box into 1.3 inches or less at 100 yards. I personally would never buy them or recommend them based upon my experiences. I have a box and half left, need someone local to take them away.
I've been loading them for friends, one in 30-30 one in .35 rem. The 35 rem shot very nice groups, the 30-30 was a consistent 1.5"-2" at 100 so I'll try to tweak that for him a little better before the season.
I have tried them in my Marlin 1894 44mag. They did not group well at all. It just wouldn't group any less than 5"-6". I have them for my 336, but haven't tried them yet. To be honest I'm hesitent on their accuracy.
I have heard from a couple people that the lever revolutions and Marlins "micro-grooved" barrels just don't go well with each other.
When I tried them in a 336 I used to own group size was around 3" at 100 yards while the Big Green 170 gr. were around 1". Did not get anything with them and have since traded the rifle. I have a Savage 340 that groups them nicely at 50 yards with the open sights.
