RE: marlin lever action
They all suckwith regular factory ammo IMO. Hornady is decent but still not up to full potential.
Personally I prefer the 444 over the other two and there isn't an animal on this continent I would feel undergunned with a full 444 load. Of course this would also apply to the other two as well but I just prefer the 444.
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency........... Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."
