Now that my Marlin 1894C (.357 Mag.) is broken in I'm trying some handloads for accuracy. The best so far is 15.0 grains 2400, 180 grain WFNGC, & CCI pistol primer.
At 50 yards the groups are less than 1" wide, but 2" -3" high.
I'm thinking that perhaps a different primer will provide more consistent velocity and reduce the vertical stringing.
All thoughts and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

     Leverguns are also notoriously finicky about where they lay on the rest. I have gotten best results with the front rest almost all the way back to the receiver, right where the fore end joins the receiver. Are you chronographing loads? I think it would take a huge velocity variance to cause stringing at only 50 yds. Let us know what you find out!    ID
