Different strokes for different folks. I chose a Marlin 1894 and a S&W 629 for my .44 magnum pair and A USGI M1 Carbine and Ruger Blackhawk for my M1 Carbine pair. The M1 Carbines fires a fast light bullet with muzzle energy about 900 ft-lbs. The .44 magnum fires a heavier bullet at a slower velocity for a muzzle energy of about 1000 ft-lbs.
If I were to limit use to light duty camp/target/light-medium game use I'd definitely go with the .30 M1 carbine pair. On the other hand if I were to consider heavy duty camp/target/medium-heavy game I'd go with the .44 magnum pair.
When the number of people in institutions reaches 51%, we change sides.
