I was wanting to get some suggestions for a new caliber. I have two 30-30s,444 marlin and a 22lr. I don't even know what I want it for just want another marlin lever action to add to my collection. Don't want anything bigger than my 444 marlin and not another 30-30. What do y'all think I should get?

My budget would be 600 to 800 or so. I do reload, I hunt and plink a lot.

I'm aware this it the Marlin collectors forum, but nothing wrong with diversity, so I'll take my chances by suggesting, how about a Savage 99 or Winchester, change actions and/or calibers.

You have some large cals covered, how about a 1894 in 25-20 or 32-20? Cheap to reload and a lot of fun!

32-20.....cheap to reload and is basically a 30 cal version of the 22mag. Shoot it all day, without beating yourself up and going broke.

I really like the 25-20. How much does one run usually?

I would say 357 for the sake of easy and affordable ammo. Load it with some 180 bullets, and shoot in a T shirt if ya want some recoil perception.:biggrin:
