Was thinking about a lever action but not sure of the caliber.

Part of the fun of leverguns has been that they inherently are lower pressured firearms than is typical for a rifle. With handloading, and particularly using cast bullets, you can lower the velocity, shoot cheaply, and find a load that just about everyone can shoot. Here is my 11 year old son at the time shooting different 45-70s. We usually go through 200 rounds or so. Then we start in on the 30-30's and 45 Colts.
For more serious work, I have a 308MX. I don't vary its load much, but it still has mild recoil, though has similar ballistics to a 308 Winchester:
Its one of the few calibers actually made for longer distances in a lever gun.
