    New to 444S in BC, Canada

    Hello Marlin people. I finally stumbled across a well worn 444S that was too cheap to ignore! I have previously owned a Marlin 30-30 for a short time, but as I already carried a Savage 99 in 284, and have a 120+ year old Win 94 in 30. CF (and a Savage 340 bolt action 30-30) I let it go.
    I am on a downsizing/simplification kick, so the 444 is replacing 3 or 4 rifles (including my 338 WM BAR and 2 of the 3 above!)
    I have been lurking in the 444 threads for quite a while, so I am pretty well aware of the handloading possibilities, and various members opinions on the capability of the cartridge.
    I will be out testing the Marlin this weekend.

    Welcome to MO from SW Ohio. Well worn? That's just character--the very way I like them.
