Most factory 44 mag is light for a pistol much less a rifle. Go get yourself a single stage press, scale and a set of dies. I had a hand load for my ruger Deerfield that would kick 240 gr bullets out at a little over 1600 fps and hold a 2 inch group at 100. Talk about a bush gun! Biggest mistake of my life selling it. Hell, that Henry is starting to look pretty good... My wife is gonna kill me!

They are the go to guns around here. A Golden Boy in 22 mag, an 1894 Marlin in 30-30 my dad bought around 1960, a Savage 99 in 308 and a Browning BLR in 7mm-08. I have bolt guns but these are probably my favorites.

A couple of beloved levers and a young, and short! upstart that will get a chance this weekend...
Had to turn the other way to show off the "accuracy" tassels...at least that is what the salesman called them.

Just scored this Winchester 1892 Trapper .357 Mag. It doesn't like .38s at all. Jams up all different ways when feeding them. So far .357s are pretty reliable, although I occasionally will get a failure to feed (i.e. the next round doesn't strip from the tube onto the carrier). It seems to happen less as long as you are solid in manipulating the action. This is only cycling ammo/snap caps through it. Won't have a chance to fire it till next weekend.

This last week, I purchased a Henry 45-70 to add to my collection of guns.
