    What's the optimum barrel length for the .454 Casull in a levergun? I'm thinking of getting a Puma Legacy.

    Not sure of the ballistics but...

    I looked at one at recently and thought it would be very handy in the SS version with the hi vis sights and in stainless with the 16" barrel. Seems like a useful caliber given the ability to use .45 colt or pumped up heavy .454 loads and I LOVE the mag tube loading. I do have to qualify that statement by saying I am a sucker for short barrel lever guns and have strongly considered getting one after handling it a couple weeks ago. Fit and finish are utilatarian, just right for a gun that will get used...
