I don't recall if the rules change for Indiana finally passed to allow them to use leveractions in such calibers. Your idea about the Minnesota Deer Hunters Association is a good one. Or other outdoor organizations. It may also help to show how other states allow their use.

You would be fine with all three. The 30-30 is probably the flattest shooter in the bunch. Gotta agree. If you're confident w/any or all, I'd take the .44 or .45 if ranges were going to be ~125 or less. I'd stick w/the .30WCF if shots further out were likely. Good luck, welcome and please share pic...

Hanz, Keep soaking it, use some heat and work with the screws. Get it apart. Clean and derust everything. If the chamber and bore and action isn't in bad shape it will work. At least ... that's what I'd do. Me too. I've got one as bad I'm going to rebuild: http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d197/sas...

I've been doing some thinking along those same lines. Here's my dream rifle: Winchester 94, top eject, take down with 6 barrels. It needs to be in a rifle configuration, curved steel buttplate, nicely figured wood. I want the buttplate, receiver, lower tang, lever and forend cap color case hardened....

The Hodgdon Powder website only lists a 405 and 485 gr bullets, so it's not much help. But, would be a starting point. They list loads for both 3031 and 4064, but nothing for 748 in this cartridge.

Whereas I agree with you about the original Winchester M71, I just don't see the Browning copies as having that same... inviolate nature.

Ah, I see the difference. They used a professional photographer so the shooter and everything except the receiver of the rifle is blurry. Your photo has great focus and is very clear. Obviously an amateurish attempt to replicate the ad. :lol: :lol: Besides, it looks better.
