.444 Marlin

Recently picked up- two barrels 18" (ported) and 24" for my T/C in .444 Marlin. I know it has been around since (60's ?) but the Hornady ammo looks like it put new life in it. If you have experience or an opinion, your input pls .

I didn't check my reload book but, that looks like it. (265gr's/2350 fps Hornady).
Haven't put it through the screens yet.

I think I've only seen (on-line)a couple of .444 Marlin bolt-action
rifles being sold. I'll shoot some (expensive) and let you know. The little
18" barrel should get my adrenalin flowing. I'll feed back.
