Henry has a new 30-30 on their website...I think 30-30 or .44 Mag....Henry's quality beats Marlin now.....sharp look, though the octagon barrel had to grow on me....
Keeping them cast bullets mild and not wild will do well not to lead. I know some guys like to push them but unless they are Laser Cast that has silver in them to increase hardness, keep em mild. Aint nothin wrong with a BIG slow bullet.chance said:BH
I have a Marlin 1894 45LC, 20 inch bbl, with ballard rifling that shoots my standard blackhawk loads of 250 gr RNFP (Missouri Bullet Co) pushed by 8.3 Unique. This is a deadly accurate load at 50 yds with nary a trace of leading and just enough recoil to know you are shooting a big gun.
