Posted a few weeks back looking for opinions on a pistol caliber lever gun for use as a short-range deer gun. Ended up getting a Marlin 1894CS in .357 mag today. Wanted a .44 but got a great deal and couldn't turn it down. This 1894 CS is sweet!!!! Checkered walnut straight stock, 18" barrel, 9 shot tube... A a couple of quick question for those knowledgeable... 1) this gun has a microgroove barrel..... Can I shoot any lead, FMJ, or HP factory ammo? 2) what is a good deer hunting load in .357??? This is my first gun in this caliber. Thanks!
