    I have a major Jones for one in 44 mag (I’d also take one in 327 fed mag)

    I’ve got plenty of tactical gear. My next long gun will be a Big Boy in 44 mag unless I can find one of those 1990s 44 Mag Winchester lever actions with the big loop and saddle ring.

    It’s cool to see how much more energy long guns have vs the same load in my 7 1/2” Super Redhawk.

    I thought the article was pretty interesting and it would be pretty cool to have either one or both (JM stamped Marlin of course), but since I can't really afford to have any extra guns I'll just stick with my old 30-30 for now.

    I might just dust it off and use it if I get a chance to deer hunt this year.

    Tough decision but I'd go 44mag since I already own a Colt Anaconda and will never sell it. Id only get the 44 mag lever gun if it could handle all the BB hardcast loads. I'd hunt the chit out of that gun for all kinds of game. Let us know what you get.

    I have the 7.5” Super Redhawk in .44 mag, and the early Ruger .44 semi auto carbine, so the logical progression would be the lever gun.
    Killed deer with both of what I have now. At moderate ranges, both are highly effective.
    If I can find a lever gun at a reasonable cost, I wouldn’t hesitate to add one to the safe.
