hey guys over the years i have used the 35, 30/06 and my favorite the 45/70. i have been wanting a new close range deer rifle 75 yards max with most shots 30-50 and i am looking for a light handi rifle. i am thinking on the marlin 1894 ss in 44 rem. mag and wanted some opinions on this rifle for deer and black bear. was also wondering if anyone hear uses the same rifle in 357 mag is the 357 enough gun at those ranges.
