Fatter bullets work better in Marlins

Basically, the micro-grooves, while more numerous, are smaller (hence the name "Micro-Groove",
so fatter bullets grab in the grooves & lands better, release less gas around the bullet,
and fly faster & truer.

Of course, anyone could read that on the Marlin site or Chuck Hawk's site

Same is true for the rimfires...careful bullet selection makes the Marlin a very tough competitor
Bad bullet selection (as in, what's cheapest this week), can lead to some really oddball results.
Micrometers are your friend, when it comes to wringing the most out of a particular barrel

A gun should be a tool in the hands of a deadly weapon, not a deadly weapon in the hands of a tool.
