Now that my Marlin 1894C (.357 Mag.) is broken in I'm trying some handloads for accuracy. The best so far is 15.0 grains 2400, 180 grain WFNGC, & CCI pistol primer.
At 50 yards the groups are less than 1" wide, but 2" -3" high.
I'm thinking that perhaps a different primer will provide more consistent velocity and reduce the vertical stringing.
All thoughts and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the replies, guys.
The fore end does seem tight so I'll try loosening it, and I'll chrono the load.
Much obliged.
