I am currently considering trading my Ruger GP100 for a nice 1974 marlin .444. My main question is weather the .444 is worth it for someone who currently cannot reload. I have checked and have access to remington and hornady ammo for $35-$40. I will mainly be using this splitting time during hunting season with my 336. Thanks for your help.

i would trade and learn to handload if i had to. a 444 is not a round i shoot every day so i handload for it about once or twice a year.

I would trade it in a heartbeat but I have several smith and wesson and only one triple 4 marlin. It just depends on how much u like and need the gp100.

Get the rifle and worry about ammo later, you will not find a rifle that's better suited for the Deer woods.

You will enjoy the 444. I truly do love mine.

Enjoy the Journey

I don't have a 444, passed it along with the ammo to my grandfather. And I have bought a gp-100 since. How is your gp-100? Do you have Rifle or gun to fill the 444 marlin hole? Are you heavy at the gp100 spot? Your choice. I have a lot of .358 bullets so. ... I say keep the gp100.

The first time shooting Marlins original Big Bore is always a hoot, after 30 some years, you think I'd get tired of it!
