It's not a cartridge I've never had, I actually used it quite a bit 10 or so years ago, but I'd love to get a .45-70 again.

Okay. I may have read it from P O, but other writers may have mentioned because I read/heard it moreN once.
Ken Howell or J B come to mind.

Good for a chuckle anyway
Thnx

Tried to re barrel the 725 to 7mm-08 - came up with a MOA .260 bbl instead...

.375 H & H. Shot a few porcupines with a USFS Pre-64 70, and have ever since lusted after one. They over-penetrate on porkys, but the shower of quills from up-tree is impressive. Only way to discourage them from chewing on your tent-frame in the dead of night. We needed our sleep on trail crew! You could run them off, but they would be back.

For me the 30/40 Krag. The cartridge long neck like the 30/30 and enough powder capacity to equal the 300 savage. In a Ruger #1 the 30-40 would be a classic Finding brass is challenging and expensive.

I'd have to say the 243 Winchester. Most of the guys that started our hunting camp really like them for deer and coyotes. All of them I've had the chance to shoot were accurate and light recoiling. The best bit is they're popular enough to make it easy to find what you like as well as ammo to feed it. The only reason one doesn't live at my house is that a 25-06 I like very well does. I've come close to picking one up over the years, it just never made sense financially.

I've got 2...

9.3x62, going to scratch that itch sometime in the next year(although, I figure between my 8x57's and my .300 Win Mag, I've got anything I'd hunt with it already covered).

6.5 Gibbs, Friend of my Dad's built one when I was in High School, told Dad to take it out and "test" it the first deer season after he built it...it was an awesome piece of equipment. The same rifle sold a while back on Gunbroker, more than I had available to spend.

Someday I'll probably scratch a long-term itch and have a B-78 or Higwall in a fast-twist 6mm Rem.

I've also often Jones'd a Marlin Guide in 45-70. Problem is, anytime I'd practically carry the 45-70, I'd likely default to my 375 Kimber Talkeetna. I don't shoot a lever anywhere near enough to make one faster or handier than a bolt action.

Sako Finnwolf lever in 284win would be hard to pass up. I'll probably end up building a short-action Win FWT clone in 284 some day as well. I do have a Win 100 in 284 but I've never fired it so IMO it doesn't count.

I think it is 300 H&H for me. I tarried too long on a pre-64 a few years ago and am still kicking myself for that!
