I love my Marlin 1894 in .44 magnum.
My club has a .357 which is fun but the extra kick (even with weak loaded .44 mags) adds even more of a smile

The picture is of a Buechel Meister Schutzen rifle, made for off-hand shooting at 200yds. In britain, target shooting develpoed from military pratise and so was mainly prone at long distance. In the central European states, target shooting developed from hunting and started with archery and crossbows. Schuetzen rifle target shooting started in the mid-19th centuery and was very popular. If you look at the attendance figures for the main German events in the early 20th century they were several times those of the British NRA Imperial meeting. The sport was more or less killed off by Hitler, who did not approve of shooting pratises whuch did not support his military ambitions.
In recent years, the sport has seen a revival and you can buy a new Schutzen rifle if you have very deep pockets.
From 1896, the "Normal" calibre was 8.15 x 46R which is today on the obsolete calibre list. Cases are still made by RCBS, but can also be formed from 30-30 brass.
"Field Target" rifles and boar rifles where also made in the calibre.
