I had a Marlin XS7 for a time and ended up selling it. It was a fine rifle though and the only reason I sold it was that it didn't do anything for me that the 2 Remington 700's or Ruger 77 in the safe did. Basically it became a safe queen that rarely got shot, though when it did it did well.
It was a 7mm-08 and with factory winchester powerpoint 140's it would hold 1-1.5"/100yds all day long.
