EFM and AKH, thanks for that info.....I did not know that about that new cartridge. I miss the little marlin .44 lever gun I used to have. Someone needed it more than I did way back when....

Picked up some Reloder-7. All I need are dies to start reloading for my 375.

Yes, the 94 Big Bore will be coming on the Idaho trip.

Just for 1RiserSlip.

The one that hurts is the 8mm Rem. Mag.

It does not have a muzzle flash, it has a fucking mushroom cloud.


It hurts.

I have never liked magnums for elk. I have taken a few with a 7mm mag, though. The sweetest magnum I ever shot was a custom built .308 Norma magnum. It belonged to , Mark Blahnik, head of security for Ross Perot. He and his cronies were the ultimate elk slayers. They kept me packing my ass off those years.

I think they are overkill in most regards. If we had a heavy grizzly population I'd be more inclined to still carry one.

Ya, something about sleeping on the ground in grizzly country with meat hanging on the pole would keep me up at night!

My younger brother had a lovely Japanese Winchester 94 Legacy, 45 Colt, 24" barrel, excellent rifle. With moderate loads of Win 296 and a 340gn LBT style ogival flat point, it would do 1650fps. I'd go against anything in North America with that. It would absolutely tear up the railroad ties were used to set steel targets on, if you pulled low. S/F....Ken M

I have a Model 94 "Trapper" in .44 Rem Mag. Fun little gun. It sits in my safe awaiting the day we can get into the cowboy action game again...

Spent some time at the range. It's such a short and handy rifle. Really great handling. Approximately 300gr rounds and standard 405gr rounds pleasant enough to shoot and still pack a wallop. I did, however, fire some special nuclear 405 gr bear loads popular at the local outfitter. Ouch! Those special high-pressure rounds hurt! I'll play with different rounds for different applications. Great rifle.

Henry recently began offering a small set of their lever action rifles with a side loading gate.

Once they offer the Big Boy Steel with a side loading gate I am going to get one in .357 Magnum / .38 Special.

I have never shot a Henry, and was wandering about how fluid the action is. I realize they get more better with use. I have had my 336C Marlin since '78. My roommate back then had a winchester '94 and another had the big bore . 375. I just liked the action better with my Marlin.

Henry no doubt makes a quality firearm. As far as the action its smooth and fluent. I like the Marlin action too. Used the 336 in 30/30 to put many whitetails down.

I love the old Savage model 88 as well but dont have one. Ugly to some folks but a great rifle. I found a Savage in a .250 once. It was in great shape. Ballistics are perfect for deer. By the time I done a little homework on it, it was sold.

You just about have to do your own reloading to get the rare ammo though.

My last gig in Army was Ft. Lewis MTU. The armorers were two real cool Nam Vets. They knew their guns. They let us putz around in their arms room all we wanted, tweeking our personal weapons. They taught me how to reload and I reloaded several hundred rounds of 30/30, all BT's. I think I shot the last box a few years back. I miss the knowledge those old Nam Vets passed on and I miss hunting with them.

I want the 20” barreled version in .357 as it will hold 10+1, which is three more than my Ruger Redhawk .357 eight shooter.
