Big Bore Marlin
My ex-wife's youngest (29) bought one last year and WE love it. Handloads with 405 grain cast bullets and 50 grains of IMR 4064 make
one helluva thump on a steel plate at 100 yards, and after fiddling with the
iron sights and using a bit of holdover, we were launching plastic milk
jugs into the treetops clear out at 200. What's not to like about a rifle like that?

I have one of these but haven't loaded anything for it yet. A friend of mine says to use only cast bullets because the rifle has "cut rifling" & that jacketed bullets will eventually ruin the barrel. Is there any truth to his claims?

All bullets eventually ruin all barrels, So yeh there's "Some" truth. But Your sholder, your sons sholder, your grandsons sholder will be worn out long before a modern low velocity maintained rifle barrel will be from quality bullets.

This is the only base one of the well known custom rifle guys will use for a lever gun.
I am picking one up soon to get all set up in time for hunting season I hope.
Time to sell some other firearms in order to fun this and a custom 1911 I am getting.
Ill have to get off my butt and figure out what I want to sell and get them listed.
