Is the Marlin x7y a good rifle?
The Marlin X7 range of rifles come in short and long actions, chambered in calibres from .22-250 to .30-06. For the review, I had the X7Y Short action model in .243, but it is also available in 7mm-08 and .308 Win. It is fitted with a lightweight synthetic stock as standard – when tapped lightly, it sounded hollow and ‘plasticy’.
What kind of barrel does a Marlin XL7 have?

Is the Marlin XL7 25-06 a predator or a varmint cartridge?

Does the Marlin 223 lever barrel float?
The barrel does float and is a heavy barrel, per say. The few prairie dogs I’ve shot with it I lost sight picture during recoil. It’ll need a muzzle break if I make it one of my shooters. Does Marlin have a 223 Lever action?
Is the 223 Rem a good rifle to start out with?
The 223 Rem is one of, if not the best caliber to start off varmint shooting with. Every factory rifle I’ve had and used needed some tuning up done to them. The trigger on this rifle was fine right out of the box, no creep, and right at 2 lbs. The barrel does float and is a heavy barrel, per say.
