Out of a Marlin .44mag levergun what load would be recommended for whitetail deer? Preferably a light recoiling load. Also what would be a good sight in range to get the maximum point blank range out of the .44mag? I sight my bolt action rifles in 3" high at 100yds. Gun is for my 62yo father who wants to hunt with me this year. For some reason he does not want a bolt action rifle, he wants a lever action carbine. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
