I've thought about getting one of these for a while now, but I'm not sure which caliber I'd purchase. My brother inherited a .30-30 from my grandfather and I'm dead on with the irons out to 150+ yards if not more. I absolutely love the way it shoots, love the action, love the size, etc. When it was time to decide who gets what guns after grandpa's death, we decided it'd be best to take turns choosing. It was my turn to choose and the model 94 was still available, but I chose the Colt Anaconda .44 mag instead. I had such fond memories grandpa shooting it for the first time and the gun flying out of his hand cracking the grill of his brand new Ford I just couldn't pass it up. I really like the idea of having a brush gun chambered in the same caliber as my Anaconda, but my question is whether or not a Model 94 chambered in .44 mag will shoot comparably to one chambered in .30-.30 which I love so much. I'm thinking the obvious answer is no because I'm comparing a pistol round to a rifle round, but I'd like to know just how different they are.
