    You will like that BB94, mine is my favorite lever. I voted 30-30 cause I cant imagine not having on. I just use Starline 38-55 in mine, chamber measures plenty long and I have little need for full power 375s here in TN. I understand about the factory loads, at 4$ a trigger pull , too rich for my blood!!!!!! Got some of my own that I need to just sell

    I went with 44 mag but would be equally happy with 35 rem. 30-30 is good too!

    I thought about using Starline 38-55 brass but I need to save my pennies up. Who knows someday I might come across a .38-55.All the ammo I have is worth more as collector ammo. The boxes are perfect.It is all 1970's production.I keep it in my vintage ammo display. I really like old ammo boxes. I would love to get some more .375 Winchester cases (this is a hint to Starline whom I keep messaging about this). I like to take my BB94 out to Stewart county, Tn. I have a friend out that way who has a feral hog problem. Those hogs are mean but that .375 is a whole lot meaner.

    I am a bit late on this,,,

    I would go with the 45 Colt,,,it's been getting the job done for 125+ years.
