i shot a marlin 25......ive shot them with all kinds of bullets....but this year im sticking with cci stingers.....i think they are the best 22lr bullet made....ive got perfect mushrooms like big game bullets DREAM of getting i recoverd from targets ive shot.......its an impressive bullet.....and flys faster then any other 22lr bullet......i head shot groundhogs at 50+yds with it to have the bullet pass through....ive seen many 22 bullets not able to do that same thing.....i like them stingers.......i usually site in about 30yds or so.....and learn wehre it hits closer and farther then that.......works for me........i cant wait to blast some tree rats.......

I shoot my old Mossberg Bolt Action .22, I have no idea what model, with a little 4X on there...shes a tack driver.
I usually just use my ol' Winchester 1300 though...
