Yeah, definitely going to check that out. Also going to find some for my 357 mag. I've seen some here And there but haven't paid too much attention to the prices. I have a guy I buy reloads off of that gets 150 fps slower using the bullets and different powder and reloads 5% lower than max pressure so if all else fails I can always pick a box of those up.
And I was thinking about a marlin, but if I can find one I think I may go for the Winchester ranger and have it cut down to 16.5 or 18 inches. I like the idea of a 16.5 inch gun though. Dont think I could find anything handier in the woods or a small blind than a 16 inch gun. I dont think it will take the place of my 357 as a truck gun, but it would also be handier in my little s-10 to and from the woods.
