    Beautiful piece of old American Style Craftsmanship . A buddy of mine in Bear Country uses a .444 Marlin on anything up to Black Bears and it has accounted for a lot of black Bears over the years.
    Also , bullet availability is much easier than the .405 Winchester. If my memory serves me correctly, no one makes Solids for the .405 Winchester anymore ?

    Hoss, if you mean loaded cartridges, you are probably correct.
    However if you mean solid bullets, you are not correct.
    Hornady, Barnes, Woodleigh, and others make .410, 411, .412 bullets in 300 and 400 grains and they are readily available. In fact, the 300 grain Northfork came in cup point and flat point solids. The latter shoot through ele heads on a frontal brain shot.
    There are also the 210 grain bullets for the .41 mag pistol; they come in several shapes and weights and some are fine for taking deer sized game.
