Well did some hand loading over the last couple of days ran some ladders on some 243 gr cast flat nose ( plinking AMMO). Then sone 240 gr and 300 gr XTPs. Put a Picatinny scope Mount and place a Vortex Venom Red dot. The cast for plonking ran 9.0 to 9.5 gr. Of 700 X not a max velocity round Im guessing around 1,450 FPS out of the 17.5 barrel. The XTPs are both using Winchester 296. 240s 23.5 gr to 24 gr. 300s 20.5 gr to 21 gr. Looking like I should get 1740 or so from the 240s and Round 1,525 or so from the 300s

Thats nice, never been a fan of the tacticool lever guns but that one may be an exception.

Does the front of the tube pop out so you can tube or side load it? Thats a handy feature. Load with the tube on Sunday shoot all day (metaphorically) and reload from the gate while on the shoulder.

It is a side gate and tube feed. So you can load at will depending on what situation works for you. If you put a silencer on the barrel you may have side gate only depending on you dimensions.

Gotta get me one. A 7 round tube and side load. Wish it came with a wood stock and not synthetic. Sweet looking rifle.

I would imagine Henry is going to end up producing a side gate loading .357 in wood configuration. Im fighting the urge to buy one of these myself, in the meantime.

Im thinking that the Henry X may be on the short list. Just have to figure out which caliber to get!
