  1. Lead free deer hunting Barnes XPB, Cutting Edge Maximus, Lehigh Defense 444 Marlin

    The 444 Marlin
    Follow up to my post last month. Due to California lead free requirement I've shelved my favorite 444 Marlin loads and bullets (240gr & 280gr Swift A-Frame Heavy Revolver bullets--the Swift A-frame 240gr in particular does exactly what the 444 Marlin was designed for: big bore, reasonable...
  2. Barnes 225 XPB H4895 or AA5744 load for intermediate range deer

In 2004, Marlin reintroduced a lever-action .410 briefly as homage to the original Model .410 built in 1929 and it was based on the more modern 1895 frame (Fun Fact: These were made in limited edition to...
  6. Marlin 444 Jamming up when chambering a round.

    The 444 Marlin
    Hello This is my first post to the forum, but I have been reading for a long time. I currently own a Marlin 444-s and a Marlin 30a Glenfield in 30-30. My question today is regarding the 444. I have been having a consistent issue when chambering a round. When adding 3 rounds to the magazine, and...
