I dunno why I am explaining myself but here we go:
And I totally agree with you, but my 300wm is not suited for the bush at a OAL of 46", and a Marlin 45-70 with a OAL of 37" seems like a logical choice for me considering the price.
Normally I use my 300wm with 200gr Accubond (does wonders), but looking for something new/different this time.
I understand the problems with the pressure in the lever actions. I have been going over my books and firgure that 2000+ fps will still be atainable with a 350gr pill.
Tks for answereing the question on barrel length, good to know.
