You got a great deal on that! About a third of what they are going for these days. Mine is a '79, and I bought it back when they were in the $175-$200 range everywhere. However I've never loaded anything heavier than 158gr. in mine. No particular reason why it won't stabilize a heavy bullet, I just never tried. I took a large doe with it using the 158 gr. JSP, at about 80 yards, right after I bought it, and then just used it as a plinker. It's probably the last Marlin I would ever let go of (if'in I had to that is). Congratulations! What a deal!
