Back in those days I used the 148gn Bingley HBWC.

Now they were a good quality bullet - I used them in my .38spec mod 14 S&W.

I found that the 158gn TC's (Truncated Cones) worked best... if I use the RNFP in my Marlin I may as well use a shotgun!

I see no signs of leading, on the (very) few times I've cleaned it, but I only shoot up to 25m, so light loads only.


Agreed on the TC's being better than the RNFP in the Marlin. I could only get some RNFP from my club shop recently but by upping the powder load they are shooting tighter groups. Again light loads at 25 yards or less and no signs of leading when cleaned.

I am sure you will be able to machine a longer version. What's the material it's made out of.
