How does the .44 version of the Marlin do with standard 240 - 250 gr jacketed and cast ammo?

Reasonable accuracy at 50 - 150 yards for hunting purposes?

Thanks, Guy

Good info guys. Thanks.

DWB - I think that's why I typically stick with 240 or 250 gr bullets for my .44 mag handgun. I've shot the 300's with good results, but the 240's or 250's seem to do everything I ask of them. The 180's are fast, no doubt, but they don't really shoot as well as the 240's for me, from my revolver. Still, I bet they'd crank up some interesting speeds from the rifle barrel.

Seems like you guys have some fine hunting rifles with your 1894's.

Regards, Guy

Thanks all. Reading here, and exploring other 1894 threads on Marlin Owners, has rekindled my interest in a nice 1894 - the little carbines sure handle well and look great.

Seems to me that with standard weight jacketed bullets, or slightly oversized cast, it shoots pretty doggone well! Wet Dog, thanks for the photos of the targets. 44LVR - you're taking elk with it too? Terrific!

Thanks Again, Guy
