My Marlin .44 mag. lever gun wouldn't find paper at 25 yards. It had that micro-groove rifling which was worse than no rifling. I have smoothbore flintlocks that are much more accurate than that hunka junka was.
Hopefully the new Remlins are better.

a 336 in 30-30 is never redundant. matter of fact 30-30 is never going to be redundant. the only issue with the lever gun in general is short arms have a hard time working the action without unshouldering and holding it on the lap. same with small hands, hard time working it well.

the 44 mag will have more ammunition capacity, but instead of shooting 7 dollars of factory ammuntion, your now going to be putting 10+ dollars of factory ammuntion in per magazine. 44 isnt cheap by anystandard. not anything that is useful for deer. love hornady
