    Default 44 Mag for Lever Action???

    Getting ready to reload for a 1894 Marlin in 44 mag. Got plenty of 240 grain types of bullets. Got plenty of 44 mag type powers. Curious what you fine folks do?? Also very interested in the 225 grain Hornady FTX.

    Long barreled pistol-caliber (.357/.41/.44 mag) carbines beg for slow burning powders like H-110 aka W-296 , 2400 , AA#9 , IMR-4227.

    I would use Lil'Gun. Originally designed for 410 shotshell. Really shines in straightwall magnum cartridges. I use it for 50 Beowulf, 460 Mag, 445 Supermag, 450 Bushmaster, 500 Mag, 444 Marlin, and 45/70.

    Utilizing the powders I had on hand I've found mine likes 2400 for 240 gr .432 cast, and 296 with 240 gr. jacketed.
    These folks are into the 1894: https://www.marlinowners.com/forum/1894/
    It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to.
