Default Henry Big Boy .357 Mag Rifle MOA?

Does anybody know if the Henry Big Boy .357 Mag Rifle shoots MOA? My brother wants to buy one and he wanted me to post on the forum to see if it was MOA or not.
Thanks,
Charlie

Find the ammo it likes and with a scope it more than likely could shot MOA. Its still only a 125 to 150 yard rifle at best so if it turns out to be a 2 1/2" moa its still fine.

I don't have a Henry Big Boy, but I do have a Marlin 1894. I really doubt it with shoot 1" groups at 100 yards. That's pretty far for the .357 magnum pistol round.... even in a carbine rifle. It's pretty accurate, but it's not a target rifle. If you want to shoot MOA or better, get a scoped bolt gun.

MOA isn't that big of a deal, it certainly isn't "target rifle"accuracy. I dare say; if I had a scope on my 357 revolver, it would shoot MOA.
Sighting in the pistol after load development.

Eye got watery on that last shot.
Getting 100 yard zero after hunting season.


My tired eyes are the weak links when it comes to shooting that pistol.

The problem with a 357 carbine is, most people think to load them to supersonic velocities. Therefore, when the velocity drops to transonic it causes inaccuracy. If you buy ammo or load it to the top of the subsonic speed, that problem doesn't exist. Whereas, one just need to load develop taking barrel harmonics into consideration.

Having said that; (especially after having said that,) I'd go with the 44mag.
