Both the Marlin and Savage were around 1" groups of 5 shots. They seemed a little bewildered. I asked to see their targets and they just said they needed more practice and weren't shooting seriously. Really?
Now there's something I've been wondering about: how do guys get past the stigma of shooting their centerfire rifles at 25 and 50 yards? I've been seeing more and more of it and it's got me scratching my head.
