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.
I ain't askin' nobody for nuthin', if I can't get it on my own.
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.
