the leverevolution rounds are amazingly accurate out of my 1894. But I think they're a bit pricey for skunk duty. WWB 240gr soft points are a good all around round. I'm not sure if Henrys have the same problem as Marlins, but I'd stay away from unjacketed rounds. They dont feed so well.
There are many things in life that are out of my control. Recoil isn't one of them.
