Got My New Marlin 917VR

20 posts in this topic

Well I just picked up my Marlin 917VR from a friend of mine that has a gun licence. I put everything on it in hopes of shooting it but my girlfriend call and said we should do something so I ended up doing something with her and didn?t get to shoot it :lol: . Hopefully tomorrow is a good day like yesterday was no wind at all. Here are some pictures I took with my cell phone camera so not the best but they will do for now. Go ahead and tell me what you guys think. Thanks!!IMG_1424.jpgIMG_1425.jpgIMG_1426.jpg

Better Pics Now! The Scope is a BSA Sweet 17, 6-18x40.
Much better pictures. :lol: Have you used that BSA Sweet 17 scope before? They make excellent tent stakes but seems to have problems holding POI on a gun. Maybe your's will be better. I was ready to beat someone to death with mine but Midway was kind enough to take it back before I had to. :)

I would have taken my girlfriend but she lives an hour and a half away. So, it would have been hard to find some place there. And it was windy there so I wouldn’t have been able to anyways. Yeah, I got it sighted in tonight, it wasn’t calm but not too bad of a wind. After I got it sighted in my brother and I went out and shot some Jacks. And after shooting 30 jacks tonight (one at about 220 yards) it was still shooting as it had been when I had it sighted it in so no problems yet. I would have taken some pictures of the groups but didn’t have a camera or my phone. I did do 3 shot groups with the Hornady, CCI (V-Max and HollowPoint), Federal, Remington, and Winchester. Surprising to me was that the best grouped was the Hornady and the CCI HollowPoint :huh:. But Im not taking those as true results until I go shooting when there is no wind. And Yeah Stiff Neck, we have a long shop because I live on a farm, the one that we put all our equipment in that is about 120 yards long it would be a perfect inclosed no wind shooting range. The only problem is the Tractors, Trucks and other equipment in the way. I have always told my dad that it would be awesome to clear out a place to shoot in there he just never seems to see it my way. :lol:
