I’m really liking the 355 GNR in a Marlin lever gun. It shoots so good for me. The XS rear sight and front red fiber optic works great for my eyes.
So far I’ve used a Speer 180 gr with H335 and as far as accuracy don’t see any reason to change it. Should do anything I need it to do. A powerful cartridge in a handy gun. Now it’s time to take it hunting.

we have been extremely lucky with our custom Marlins

they have all worked very well. In the beginning we had our 30 GNR and 7 GNR and then the 475 GNR Buffalo Hunter that John Taffin did a great article on. Then later the 50 Alaskan on the 1895 and about the same time the 450 GNR, 375 GNR#2 and the 416 GNR in the African Classic. A while later the 41 GNR, and the 410 GNR came out on the 1892, then the 429 GNR also on the 1892.Then the 355 GNR, 400 GNR and the 256 Falcon all on the 336, and now the 500 S&W. And all of these have worked perfectly with no problems. So yes, we have been extremely lucky.

THAT'S not lucky, Gary. That's a combination of goo design, good engineering, and damn good workmanship. Give yourselves a pat on the back.

Not just the Marlins. The 355 GNR is so good...

Im thinking TC G2 Rifle. Hard to find a better cartridge Id think.

The 338 Falcon is looking good too.

I have been thinking the same thing.

some of my unusual gun ideas is a big help. I have wanted to do these guns for years but my guys at the time just constantly said they wouldn't work, so rather than waste time we didn't have I just put it off. Now I have guys that will make it happen.

Nice shooting !
