I was wondering if anyone has any info on the Marlin 444. I am thinking about buying one.

Hunted with one for over 35 years, I always loaded my own ammo, Old Barness Orginal with 41 grain powder, one shot kills on everything NO MORE CHASING those deer or hogs used a 3x9-32 Thompson recoil proof scope because the recoil would blow out the recital of lesser scopes, If I were you I would get one you could use the new leverroution ammo I bought a box of heads but have never used them yet. I have shot deer in the hind quarter and droped then like a rock yet it does not bloody the meat like a 30 06 does youi can eat the meat around the bullet hole always found that strange. my rifle has just gathered duct with that new rule on primitive arms I now use a KP1 45-70 with the new leverroution ammo killed a 245pd hog and a ten point buck last year and I can use the same rifle all year. Good luck

Me and my brother in law shoot the Handi Rifle in 444, with the Leverevolution ammo and love the guns. No blood trailing required with them, and the meat damage is not bad at all. I shot 3 with it last year at different yardages and none took a single step. The Handi Rifle is accurate; 3 shots at 100 yards, one big hole in the paper.

I have a TC pro hunter with a .444 marlin barrel that I prefer to use over my remington 270. It doesn't shoot as far but it is an awesome gun. It can shoot out to 200 yards with accuracy.
