What is the max effective range for a .22magnum. I'm using a Marlin 980, clip fed, bolt action.

I remember looking on a box of regular .22LR and it said max effective range is about 2 miles. Figure in more gun powder for the .22 mag and it should double if not triple that range. Of course you will get bullet drop but it'll still probably poke a hole in something.

I hope this may help you in your quest.

X288:
I believe that on the box of ammo it will give the maximum range. The maximum effective range is not the same.
