    Default Henry caliber question

    I'm looking at 2 Henry rifles right now, one in .44 and the other in .45-70.

    I'm not a hunter, so whichever one I get will be a range toy or shtf high caliber rifle.

    Which would you choose, and why?
    Price difference is negligible.
    Gun control isn't about guns...it's about control

    45-70 can get spendy if you do not reload

    I’ve enjoyed both of them in lever action rifles. You really can’t go wrong with either. For the reasons that you’ve mentioned here, me, I’d go with a 44. Ammo is everywhere and is cheaper than 45-70, plus you can pair it up with a revolver and feed them out of the same box of ammo.

    Some of those Henry Rifles are very, very nice. Best of luck!

    Yup for these reasons I'd go .44 mag if just a range/fun gun.

    It's nice that you could shoot 44 special as well if you go with the 44.
