that is a sweet gun. I would agree that gun would look awesome in wood. it already has a side gate which is a huge plus to me !

I got the 44 mag because it puts more energy down range. The 357 with a 158gr Speer JHP produces at 1,830 fps from a 20 barrel produces 1,147 ft lbs of energy. At 100 yds the velocity is 1,410 fps with 697 ft lbs of energy, From my 44 Magnum with a 17.5 barrel I can fire a 300 gr JHP at roughly 1,528 fps yielding 1,556 ft lbs at the muzzle. At 100 yds the 300 gr JHP is traveling at 1,301 fps with 1,128 ft lbs of energy. So at the muzzle the 44 magnum produces 409 more ft lbs
and at 100 yds roughly 431 more ft lbs.

The 44 magnum is more expensive to shoot if you buy it off the shelf. Since I roll my own not that much of a difference. So the real deciding factor is more energy down range.

Beauty. I received the new Catalog in the mail the other day and I have to do some shopping. Hope you enjoy it. Henry makes a great rifle.

I got mine on line from Cornerstone Fire Arms in Colorado. They are popular so you might have to search for a while. Ship it to your local FFL.

Youve got the Big Boy. Golden Boys are rim fire.

I debate this, only because Marlin offers the 336 Black in 16" which has me leaning Marlin, but only for that reason.

Perhaps I am inexperienced with lever guns, but I see it as a bonus. With the mag tube being removable, I presume allows for the firearm to be unloaded without having to cycle all of the rounds through the chamber.

If Henry comes out with that .357 configuration, I'll be throwing money at them to get one!
