My big safe is nearing completion so I figured I’d get my list together of the Henry rifles that I’m looking to collect. I have the 30-30 below.

caliber-wise.......i would put the 41 and 327 at the top of the list.........mainly because they might get discontinued eventually due to low volume sales......or....maybe not.

Henry's

I have most of those (22LR/L/S, 357/38, 41M/41S, 44M/44S, 45Colt, 30-30 and 45/70Govt) and I love every single one of them. I load all those centerfire handgun cartridges and ended up doing a little research to hand-load the 41 Special. Henry won't attest to compatibility, but I got them to work/shoot just fine in mine. You have to get a special die for it. I had to buy a 41 magnum die set and then, I think, get a 41 Special crimp die because the magnum crimp die was a bit too long for the shortened case. To make it more frustrating the difference is like 2000th of an inch and the special die cost as much as the entire 41 magnum set of dies. But, hey, it works and it's way cheaper than buying new. Cool thing about lever guns is you can easily get your brass back. If you hand/reload I recommend H110 for the magnums listed above. Very accurate, good power.

I’m afraid to price the ammo for the .327 federal and the .41 magnum. More uncommon usually means more expensive.

update: looks like $.55 and $.80 / rd respectively for generic ammo. Not cheap but not too expensive. My 500 magnum is between $1.50 and $3.00 / rd. Depending on the manufacturer.

Talk with your local LGS about a 'deal' on case lots of ammo.

I can get them (magnums) for $.56/rnd through targetsportsusa. And that is pretty much on par with the 44 magnum equivalent. Reloading is still cheaper- I use Starline Brass which gives me quite a few reloads out of it.

I won't sell mine, either. Ever. Got my order in as soon as they announced they were going to make 'em. Got a pretty low serial number. :) #3X

I think it took near a year before they called me to tell me it was in.

Thanks for this tip. I have finally had a chance to look through this site. Potential to save me some money on .308, 30-30, 22 WMR assuming I order bulk.
