I picked up a Marlin 1894 in 22 WMR a couple months ago and finally got a chance to take it to the range today. It had a rain mount on it when I got it so I put a 2-7 leupold vx2 on it. The hardest part was finding ammo.

I was pleasantly surprised at how well it shot. CCI maximag 40gr solids shot a nice little 1.5” cluster of 5 shots at 100 yards. I then used anoth 10 rounds breaking clay pigeon pieces on the back berm. Due to the scarcity of ammo that was all I could afford to use.

I think now that bears are going to sleep for winter this will replace my 1894 44 mag in its chicken flock protection duties.

That should be a super fun rifle, and well suited to the protection task. I too have limited my use of the "Mag" due to Ammo scarcity. :( CL

Nice rifle!

Check Natchez for 22 WMR ammo, they sent a flyer this morning for an ammo sale. They actually have some available as I type this.

Sadly I’m in Alaska. We don’t have the mail order ammo option. If I can’t find it local I have to stock up when someone flies down

22 WRM ammo seems to be reasonably priced and available here.

If you buy a brick that comes to $16.50/box delivered.
I bought a brick of CCI Maxi-Mags about 5 years ago for $14.50/box delivered, that is only about a 14% increase. That is not bad considering many other components and ammo have increased a lot more than that. I also bought cheaper 22 WMR ammo a few years ago, but it is not nearly as accurate as CCI Maxi-Mags. In my rifle anyway.
