    This is what my step-dad carried when we'd hunt backhome. In Maine woods it was damned handy. From doing research the biggest issue wasn't the 240gr bullets but folks trying to hotrod outside the pressure curve that the gas system is set up for. It's kind of a limited range for it to run correctly. Also lead and it's gas system are no Bueno.

    Funny you should say that. I was thinking the same thing. Missed one at the gunshow last year for $400 even had western holster with it, duh. Looped back around and it was gone! Ignored that gut feeling... double duh.
    I wouldn't have been able to get my wallet out quick nuff had I seen that.

    Yep, had the $$ in my pocket, duh. Don't get me wrong it was wacked up and had some fuzzy spots on it, but for me would have been perfect.
    They clean up pretty and crazy enough can still find stocks for em on occasion if the woods beat. I'm still trying to find one where I don't have to Sell a kidney.

    If you can find the wwb like they used to sell at Walmart was 240 gr jsp. My step-dads ran that perfect. I actually may have some of them put aside I'll look Tues. And also may have some reload data in one of my books or saved with source I'll send over if I can find it.

    Milton/ Allentown line…
    I have the 99/44, 44 carbine, and a 96/44 all of them shoot Leverrevolutions really well with zero failures. Never tried 44Spl but now I’m gonna have to. I suspect the 96/44 will cycle it without issue…

    also fellas can we please get back to this:
