    I used to have a NEF singleshot 357 magnum. The leade in the chamber was sooooo long I could load Hornady 200 grain .358" round nose softpoints in the crimping groove. The round looked odd but it was a deer thumper out to 100 yards.

    Nosler had a 115 grain .357" hollowpoint back in them days and I flung them things so fast they would exlode woodchucks like they got smoked by a 220 swift. The 357 magnum is a screamer from a rifle. Only thing I do not like about that is I would prefer a wood stock and a satin or matte blue finish.

    I think it's a little over priced at $749 msrp


    I'll stick to my Marlin lever gun

    I had one of the Model 77's in .44 Mag a while back. It was an excellent rifle and it is one of those that I wonder why I traded it.
