Re: .243 win load

My wife's gun is a marlin xs7 in .243. She loves it because it is short and light. It's a good carry rifle for her. I have been trying to get the hornady 87gr Bthp to work with about 1.75" groups. I will try what you said and see what happens.
Thanks Matt

sometimes the marlins act flighty when all they really want is a free floated barrel. The stock on them is pretty flexible when it's warm out and likes to slap the barrel so get it away and the accuracy gets better.

Re: .243 win load

Glad to help. I did free float the barrel like the one guy said. That helped a lot. I only paid $319 for it brand new, mounted the scope and floated the barrel and its an absolute nail driver.
