Part of the appeal with a Marlin 336 .35 Rem was the ability to hand load to exceed the factory ballistics intended to be safe in the old Remington auto loaders. I have a Henry and its a fine and fun shootin iron but, I don't think I would want to try hot rodding handloads for a rifle with a brass receiver. Maybe they will follow up with a steel receiver side loader.
Them that don't know him won't like him and them that do,
Sometimes won't know how to take him.
He ain't wrong, he's just different but his pride won't let him,
Do things to make you think he's right.
Great idea. This is a gamechanger. Time to get another Henry this time in 38-55!

Words cannot express my excitement for this new rifle from Henry. Next AR, next 1911, and anything else just went out the window. Buying one in 38-55 ASAP!!!
I also want to touch on the price of these rifles. Guys, you have to understand. It's hard to make a quality rifle anymore for under $1000 in something like a levergun. Look at what Remlins cost and look at the quality issues we have to deal with! I have no issues paying the piper for quality. These aren't easy to produce AR's.
Ugh, makes me wish I’d waited 4 years to buy my brass Henry 30-30 bc I want one of these.

The video of the brass 38-55 shows Buffalo Bore loads being shot in it and they are not what I would call wimpy.

The tube loader is better/safer to unload the gun... Nobody seems to mind the tube loading on .22's. So, what's the big deal?
Both would be good. Tube for standing and Gate for prone.
