Re: Marlin 925M .22WMR Sniper Rifle!
I just picked up a used wood stocked 25MN, (discontinued I think), and I will SteelBed it with a pillar under the action screw and float the barrel. I would recommend that you float the barrel for consistency. A stock that bears on the barrel can push it around with changes in temperature, humidity, and your hold / or rest.
I sight a .22Mag in at 100 yds and expect to get approx 1 moa, or sometimes better, at that range. The most accurate rifle I had was a H & K Mod 300 semiauto. I'm hoping that the Microgroove barrel will be a good shooter too. The most accurate ammo for me so far has been Super X hollowpoints and Remington Premier. I haven't thought about shots past 150 yds, but would expect 2"- 3" groups at 200 yds. That's just a guess though. I don't have any doubt that the Mag would score hits at 500 yds on a target, but I wouldn't shoot an animal at that range with it.
