Drop shot. As I mentioned before, first you have to decide what is accurate. Some leverguns won't shoot as accurately as you like. You are not going to get the same group with an 18" SRC model 94 as you will with a 30" 73. And that won't get the same group as my 34" LRE Shiloh Sharps! First off to get started, let me ask you a few questions: Do you reload? This is key. Do you shoot lead or copper? In two of my 94's in 30-30, I am shooting copper. I have not been able to work up a load in either one with lead that shoot as well as copper. Doesn't mean they won't do it, just means I have not found it yet. Do you cast bullets? What are you using the Marlins for and what calibers are they? My levers are 45/70 in the Shiloh Two model 94 in 30-30...One is an 18" Carbine 64 and the other is a 30WCF 1916 with a 26" BBL. Another one is my 73 with a 30" BBL in 44/40 Another is my Savage model 99 in 358 Win. The 45/70 and the 44/40 I cast bullets for and use 30:1 Lead to tin. The other three I am using Copper bullets for. Mainly for hunting reasons and like I said, I have not found a cast that shoots well in the 94's. I have not cast bullets for the 358 yet, but not sure that I am going to. I like the groups I'm getting right now and I like the expansion of a partition type bullet for larger game. Right now I hunt with my 94 carbine for deer and my 99 for Elk and such. So get a bit more specific on what you want to know and where you want to start and I'll try my best to answer your questions.
