    Not sure if there is such a beast out there, but it would be a great caliber for a lever gun. :D

    Most lever guns use tube mags. Thsi would limit the type of projectiles that you can use to prevent pointed bullets from setting off primers of the rounds in front of them.

    So soft points, round points or polymer tipped bullets only. No mil surplus ammo.

    Or it would have to feed from a box mag like the BLR mentioned above, or a rotary mag like the Savage 99.

    The BLR with scout scope mount is my "Rich and Famous" gun. As I recall they seemed to limit the capacity where they coulda squeezed more .223's in there. .308 seemed to be the best choice of cartridge I thought given the capacities for the various rounds.
