I'm looking for a 45 colt lever gun. The only lever I have is a Marlin 39 A I bought in high school. My son has a Henry Big Boy I really like it just a little on the heavy side for me. I'm thinking more along the lines of a Henry Big Boy steel carbine or Marlin 1894C. I load for my sons Henry 250g bullets it shoots very well out to 100 with lead loads and 150y with some hotter jacketed loads. I will be using it for close range whitetail stand hunting, plinking and maybe some hogs. Your thoughts or suggestions are welcome.
