Amen brother. I like the calibre in my DW revolver anyway, but it's a completely different (even better) round in my 1894.imashooter2 said:A Marlin 1894C .357 mag. Ammo is dirt cheap, recoil is very light, enough power to take medium game at reasonable ranges... It's just about the perfect bumming around rifle.

I have done it with both a rifle, and a handgun. Just have to get within 50-75 yards and place your shot. While stationed in Utah, I even used a 32-20 in a 1896 Manufactured Marlin Model 1894, and the .357 has a lot more going for it than the 32-20.Rinaldo said:You gentlemen take down Deer with teh 357?
