    I knocked my 444xlr back to 18.5" and she shoots 200-320 gr cast with good accuracy and speed

    Great idea c.t., thus making an instant trapper version. May have to start looking for another 444 XLR Stainless laminate model for sale.

    I love stainless Marlins. A stainless 444 would be sweet.

    There's a 300gr Partition and Hornady 265 + 300 gr but a .444 ends where a 45-70 begins.

    Hopefully it won't have excessive rusting issues like my 45/70 GBL.

    Maybe use a LITTLE G96 on it once in a While ! RJ
    A 375 H&H Chambered rifle is the Real KING !

    I have to 444, 45-70 and 30-30. Love them all. I hunt alone in Grizzly and Cougar country. With either of these bigger two, I have no concerns about whether I have enough juice to stop something with teeth running at me.

    Have killed well over 30 deer with them and the only time that I wasted meat one time when I really messed up my shot.
