    Post about your M14's!

    I know this forum is not only about just a few men's M14 rifles, how about some other postings of rifles and pictures!

    Let us know what you're doing with your rifles!

    It's a 444 bud ! (early model 1968) in a caliber that nobody makes anymore.

    I have a set of dies for 444 if you need them Van. They will be 50 years old next year and only used lightly on Sundays. I don't have a rifle in that caliber any more.

    A friend of mine has a Marlin .444, he's slain a lot of deer with it! He's even shot hard cast bullets, over 300 grain. It really comes into it's own, when loaded with real rifle bullets, not with the pistol bullets in the rifle case, it originally came out in.

    Re: Post about your M14's!

    Thanks, but I don't reload anymore and there is still 444 ammo on most shelves out there. (I have a lot of it)

    Since they have improved the 4570 ballistically, the manufactures have dropped the 444 chambering due to low interest. Although I think somebody is still making break-open single shot combo in 444.

    Yes that 300gr. flat nose is a terror, when it comes to penetration and expansion and loses very little of its weight! I use the Hornady 265 gr. LEVERevolution

    Wow! Seems like yesterday I could get a .444 lever and now no more. The industry is changing and the new thing is 6.5.
    I think I'm getting old.
