There's no such thing as a .223 lever action rifle, because the .223 cartridge is not rimmed and the bullet is a pointed projectile.

Umm...

BLR Lightweight `81, 223 Rem., Item 034006108, UPC 023614068143

The BLR is made in many non-rimmed calibres. Spire point bullets are just fine to be shot in lever actions that have box magazines. Poly tipped spire points such as Hornady Leverevolution are also available for rifles with tubular mags

I just got home from my local gunshop, and they had a couple of those. They're neat and interesting, but I think I'm going to stay with my Winchester 94 and Marlins .

man you have been going insane on BOB things alot on here lately. including rifles. you dont have any relations to a kaczynski do you?

furthur more, why is it i only see BOB rifles as .22 or .223. is there an unwritten law that denies the use of a rifle with balls as a BOB item?
