Posted ImagePosted ImageRecently, got a new fun gun to shoot, a Marlin 1895 Cowboy in 45/70 cal. Am shooting 325gr. Hornady FTX ammo. Octagon barrel on it is kinda cool, along with the history of the cartridge. Plan on using it for Hogs and Deer, maybe a few street lights tooPosted Image

If I had it to do over again I'd have gone with the cowboy instead of the guide gun when I bought mine.
Nothing at all wrong with the shorty guide gun version, I just like the cowboy look.

Hey, on a side note, mine shoots the good ol' hollow points just as well as the leverevolution stuff out to 100 yards.
I'd test that. Might save you a couple bucks per box of ammo. :D

That is a really nice looking deer tamer. Although it isn't a bean field rifle it will do the job at the normal distances that nearly all deer are shot at. What a fun gun to own!!!

Actually, the Hornady ammo was the "cheap" stuff at $29.95 a box. Winchester 300gr. hollow points were $35 per box. I bought 3 boxes of the Hornady stuff just so we could get some brass for reloading. For some reason, around these parts, anything in a .45 cal is expensive or hard to get. Next project is to equip the gun with a peep sight system, not real fond of the rear sights that came with it.
