Let’s talk traditional levergun pressures. Top end for a 30-30 is at about 40,000 PSI. The 44mag top end loads see about 40 to 45,000 psi. For the other pistol cal leverguns that’s the top end limit.

I have two original 1892s and had a Rossi. All were good guns that could be taken to the stand or the stage. I also have a Marlin 1894 .44 Mag jm-marked. I consider it a better field gun since it i

Here's my 1892 in 45 Colt... since we're showin' off...

Rooster, that was kind of what I was thinking. I have always worn glasses but these past few years I am kind of max'd out on magnification for my glasses so I need all the help I can get. :-)

Wow Jabez, I'll bet it does! :-)

What powder do you use? Not looking for recipe, as that is frowned upon, just the powder name. I have read that H110 is a popular one. I have no experience with that one.

You can make mildly hot loads to Cowboy loads with Unique .

I say it all the time , Unique is a Smokless answer to BP.

You can load anything with Unique .

I get these results using a few different powders like H110, AA9, and my favorite..... LilGun.

I shot my new tifle today. Man is it sweet. I shot some cowboy loads and some different jacketed factory rounds including the Leverevoltion rounds and this gun is more accurate than i am with all of them. The faster loads hit point of aim. The cowboy loads shot a little high but nice tight groups! I have a definite keeper on my hands :-)

 

Thanks for the powder advice. Looks I wil be getting out my cookbooks...yeehaw!
