I'm wondering if any of you folks are loading 44 Special or 44 Mag for the Marlin 1894 or other lever guns? What diameter bulltet are you using: .429, .430, .431 or .432? and did you slug your bore? I'm just now getting into reloading and at the point of buying some bullets for this thing. Got powders coming in tomorrow. Found a nice 240gr 44 SWC HP with gas check from a Lyman mold that I like, but .430 is the largest he can go. My understanding is the vast majority of these 1894's slug out to .431. Any thoughts on running .001 under vs even or .001 over? My goal would be pushing this thing at about 1250 fps with AA#5, AA#9 or possibly 4100.
