Nothing is set in stone by any stretch. I did see the lever 308, but i thought it was a different .308 specially made for levers?

I believe 'Gello is trying to find a way to shoot up the 7.62 x 51 ammo he bought over the weekend.

The new Ruger American Rifle looks interesting.

Browning makes a lever action that is magazine fed, Winchester also made model 88 which was magazine fed.

A used Browning lever action .308 can be found for about $500.00.

Hornady makes Leverevolution ammo for tube fed rifles. It is to allow the use of pointy bullets in tube fed lever-guns.

LOL! I am a believer in coincidental inspiration, no doubt. It was so shiny.

I'll check out the Ruger.
