    The .357 would be a sweet gun but so difficult to justify as I have three .357 rifles now! Load it light for plinking fun and stout for varmint control....even good for deer at short range.

    Those guns look real nice.

    That makes sense. The 44's and 45/70's are pretty much out of stock everywhere (unless you want to pay retail+) and go out of stock in minutes after they are listed as in-stock....so why wouldn't you add a couple of calibers when you can't even keep up the the demand for calibers you already supposedly make. Sorry, a bit of a rank, but come on!!!

    Most seem to be selling from $359-$369 as far as I can see.

    Great news! Thanks for sharing!

    The .30-30 would be a really nice deer rifle for a beginning or younger shooter. Not to mention if you wanted to handload for it, I could see some nice 165 grain Nosler ballistic tip or Partition rounds for it.
    The .357 Magnum wouldn't be too shabby either.
    No people in the world ever did achieve their freedom by goody-goody talk and moral suasion: it being immutable law that all revolutions that will succeed must being in blood, whatever may answer afterward.

    I understand the attraction of a 357 but when I look at my brass supply and mold selection the 30-30 has me very interested. It also has a 22 inch barrel which is an attraction to me. LGS does not have one yet but I think I will bite when he does. They even have open sights which in this day and age is amazing. I will scope one if I get it.

    Need one like I need a meal of boiled spinach but I want one. Its only my kids inheritance.

    I recently traded my Handi 30-30 for another long gun. The Henry 30-30 is now on my list. My 357 handi and my Ruger 77-357 will do for that caliber. Gp

    Need has never entered into any of the decisions for my gun purchases.
