View Full Version : Which Marlin Is More Accurate?

I am thinking of buying a lever-action rifle, probably a Marlin, and am wondering what calibers are available, and which of those available are on average more accurate. Thanks in advance.

I just bought a Marlin 444P and they seem to be very well put together.
The Marlin Catalog I grabbed at Gart Sports lists lever guns in.
45/70,444,30/30,38/55,35rem,45colt,44/40,357,44mag,44sw special,and .22 long short and long rifle. I've also heard that they plan a new one this year in another big bore caliber, I think I heard its some kind of .45 . The only ones I've had experience with are the .444 and the .30/.30. as far as accuracy I think the 30/30 is probably better but I absolutely love my .444. As soon as I get a good load worked up I'll see just how accurate it is.

And does anyone know the magazine capacities of the varous calibers also?
