    Good morning The magazine is the restriction point for OAL. You can nose size the slugs so they chamber easy however long they are. But to much in the case is the issue. Our 1906 Mauser rebarreled by Israel about 1948-50 was once a 7mm. The...

    Good morning Another 41 mag hunter. We like the 240-265 grain range of slugs just because we like heavy for caliber in whatever we shoot. With those 900-950 fps is all we need for complete penetration from all angles we have shot. Never recovered...

    Good afternoon Henry Blueing. I failed to make a distinction on that point. Henry steel finish is not as finely finished as older Marlins. Henry uses a more "black finish" and with the steel not being a high polish it all together seems to reduce...
