Hi Guys, I know where I can git a mod. 71. I want to build another big cal. lever gun. I was looking at P.O. Ackley's book and think I want a .40-.348 A.I. I already shoot a .405 Win. and that would keep my bullet needs to one dia. So has anyone had any experience with this caliber? Will cast bullets work in this caliber and combination? This will push a 300gr. bullet at just under 2500 fps. Does anyone have load info. for the .40-.348? The Ackley data lists only a 300 gr. bullet and is very limited. I was thinking of something with a 22 inch octagon barrel with a full length magizine tube. That should make a fairly fast handling rifle with pretty good power for anything on the continent. I guess I am a 40 caliber man at heart. Jack K.
