    I've heard rumors that that cartridge has a little recoil. Like I said it is just a rumor however I still would like to shoot one of those rifles someday.

    I'd opt for .45/70, but I guess that's just me. Its the bullet selection and molds that would sway me.

    What is your intended use for the .444? And, is your question aimed more at the caliber or the lever action?

    I caught “Lever Fever” as a kid and have always kept at least 2 levers around the house. I’ve still got an old (late ‘60s) Savage Lever single shot .22 but I had a Marlin 1894c in 44 MAG for over 40 years until I gave it to my oldest son a couple years back. I replaced it with a Henry but only because couldn’t find a Marlin anywhere around at the time.

    Don’t think you can go wrong with a Marlin.

    I have a Rossi 92 .357 magnum.

    I don't really flip over lever guns. They're very complicated and a pain to take apart. I'd rather either shoot an auto or a bolt gun. But, I'm a hunter. I've only shot one deer with the Rossi. It came in REAL handy during the .22 drought to keep me shooting with light .38 loads. I cast a 105 grain SWC and load it over 2.3 grains of Bullseye. It's 1.5" at 25 yards accurate, not a tack driver, but good enough for plinking.
