    Love Winchester '95s best of all the Winchester lever-action rifles and I really love them all. Love the old Winchester '97 as well. If John Browning designed it, I'm willing to have it!

    Here's a .405 WCF chambered Winchester Model 1895 from 1904 that has been kept around here for many years.


    Here's an old scanned photo of a Winchester '97 from 1914 that was kept here for years but since gone away. It was put to work too. I have a parts grade '97 on hand that needs a rebuild.



    Only about 15 firearms see regular, serious use around here though the rest are fired as the mood strikes. No safe queens here. The rest were specifically acquired to pursue some collecting theme such as U.S. military, British military, Winchester, Smith & Wesson, Colt etc. Then the collection also has gone off in tangents. Where it's gonna stop no on knows.

But that's ok, I think it adds some good history to the piece, and I have no intention of putting an original stock back on.

    I don't know if it's just me/my PC but I can't see any of the pics and would love to. Thx.

My Marlin 1896C with the properly loaded round is effective for deer to about 100 yards or so (in the woods as opposed to an open field, that's not bad). Hogs, coyotes, groundhogs, and other medium to small game its good too. It can also shoot .38 Special just like your revolver. That gives you more ammo options for the situation at hand.
    So a 357 rifle is like a 357 handgun? You can use any 357 & 38 ammo?

    Odd. The photos even show up in your post No. 19 where you quoted my post No. 17. I thinking it must have to do with your equipment.

    Love the Luger too Betty. I have a Luger as well. It represents one of those tangents, a sort of World War focus I guess. I'm grateful to see you posting here again. The earliest memory I have of the Forum, and the real reason I joined after taking a peek inside, is your Winchester Model 1895 and a post you made about its acquisition.

    This is a bit obscure and is being drawn from memory so take it with a grain of salt, but I've understood "high-powered rifle" to originate with the introduction of the .30 WCF, otherwise known as the .30-30 and the introduction production of the .30-40 in sporting arms. Both the .30 WCF cartridge and the sporting chambering of the then current military cartridge, the .30-40, originated with Winchester in the 1890s. I'm thinking that their marketing department coined the term for use in advertising copy of the day. It would seem that the 2000 fps threshold passed by these cartridges and similar developments was considered the standard of performance for high-powered rifles. At least that is the way I'm recalling it. The term came into general use and remains even after muzzle velocities marched ever higher with newer cartridge developments, to over 4000 fps in some instances.

    Yes there have been center fire rifle cartridges that could be considered to be low-powered yet remained immensely popular for many years after the acceptance of the performance advantages of high-powered rifle cartridges. Common, once popular, or still popular cartridges would include: the .25-20, .32-20, .38-40, .44-40 line for Winchester and other small-framed rifles. The .32-40, .38-55, and .45-70 would fall into the category as well as many others that could be named. More modern examples could be the .30 Carbine, .357 Magnum (when used in a rifle), and the .44 Magnum. All of these cartridges would offer less power and less long-range effectiveness than the typical high-powered rifle cartridge due to both velocity and trajectory limitations.

    There could be said to be intermediate-powered cartridges. The 7.62X39 is the most obvious example. It easily breaks the 2000 fps velocity threshold but its short, stubby, lightweight bullet limits it's long-range effectiveness. The old .351 Winchester cartridge could be considered to be in this category. It offers both a pleasing bullet diameter (.351 inch) and attractive bullet weight (180 grains) but doesn't quite make it to 2000 fps. It's a good short-range big game number though now it is now obsolete. I'd personally add the .223 Remington/5.56 NATO and similar varmint cartridges to this list but most consider the round to be a high-powered rifle cartridge.

    I see them now, two beautiful examples. Thanks for sharing them.
