Howdy, I've a marlin 22 mag SS rifle, clip fed, synthetic stock that shoots great after I honed the trigger & free floated the barrel. It will shoot 3/8" groups at 25 yards with CCI maxi mags HP & Federal premiums. With other 22 mag ammo it shoot 1" at 25 yards. Try different ammo before you give up. Any questions, give me a pm or email. Good shootin!

22mag. Accuracy??

My Marlin 882SS shoots the old orginal Win. 22 Mag. JHPs into less than an inch at 100 yards pretty much every time. Shoots the CCI HPs into about 1.5"-1.75". That's the only two loads I've tried as they are what I had on hand. I now use only the Winchester HPs.

Just find the ammo it wants and it will shoot.

22mag. Accuracy??

Hey Great White Hunter,

I shoot the Marlin 25MN which is essentially the same rifle as yours; minus the fancy wood and sights. It has the exact same barrel. Mine is really accurate with the CCI Maxi Mags; both the HP's and solid points. I've never taken official measurements, but at 60 yards, the bullet holes usually touch. That's as good as it gets!

I too have had problems with Winchester Ammo. Try the CCI's. Hopefully you'll have the success that I've had. If the CCI's don't shoot well, keep searching for the right ammo. I promise you have a very accuarate rifle and it's just a matter of finding the right ammo.


Texas Squirrel Hunter :gulp:
