Here’s a proven design for the Marlin 444 microgroove barrel that Glen Fryxell created with the online design program.

The front band is undersized such that it engraves very lightly in the Marlin’s very short throat yet still chambers easily.

Instead of using the longest possible nose, Glen went with a 0.315″ long nose because it feeds better.

I like the big body bands because they are easier to cut and easier to cast than itty bitty bands.

Nice looking bullet. What is the overall length?

About 0.825″, including the gas check.

BTW, the bullet in the picture weighed 301.8 gr. cast from straight wheelweight.
