The LRX I have actually has a 24" barrel and a Decelerator pad on it from the factory.

I added XS Ghost sights AND a Smith Enterprise ladder sight for long range shooting.

The ladder sight I have comes with a tightening thumb screw on the side to eliminate movement
when shooting.

I figure 1,500 mv for the 500s will be enough and 1,600 for the 400's

This gent from OZ seems to have a pretty good handle on the long range game.
He is using a Smith Enterprise sight.

This target data has loads I fired in a #1 (where they are safe), but can't vouch for their safety in the Marlin. But they work in my #1 only in the Interbond version at cannelure length. The Interlock profile runs up against the leade in my rifle.

Perhaps lesser charges of 4895 would also work well in the 1895?


Sometimes, the air you 'let in'matters less than the air you 'let out'.
