Pros and Cons of Lever Action Rifles for Hunting

Article looks at the advantages and disadvantages of lever action hunting rifles.

While riding as part of a posse has unfortunately passed into history, there are still many good reasons to buy a lever action rifle for hunting. Lever action rifles generally point well, meaning that the act of aiming the gun is quite natural. Lever action rifles are quickly reloaded in a firing position, while it takes practice to cycle a bolt action rifle on the shoulder cycling a lever action is quite natural. Lever action rifles generally shoot mild kicking cartridges which is an advantage as many hunters choose far too powerful of a round for their needs. Using a .300 Winchester Magnum for whitetail deer is overkill and the added recoil of the big load causes many hunters to shoot poorly. I also am found of the safety created by an exposed hammer gun such as the Marlin 336 and Winchester 94. A lowered hammer on a transfer bar equipped rifle is the best safety short of an empty chamber.

The primary disadvantage of the lever action rifle is the unspectacular ballistics of normal lever action chambering. While the 30-30 Winchester is, in my opinion, a far better deer cartridge than its ballistics would indicate, it is indeed only a short to medium range load. The need for non pointed bullets in shells fed into a tube magazine further reduces the effective range of a lever action rifle. (I've not yet tried the new soft tipped pointed bullets made for use in a lever action, though I am certain they are useful and extend the useful range of a lever action) Lever action rifles are also generally less accurate than other rifle types, but at reasonable hunting ranges this is of no concern.

While I just stated that the accuracy issues of lever action rifles are of no concern for hunting, I am primarily a bolt action hunter due to the increased accuracy. The reason that I mention that is not to point out that I do things that don't make sense, but rather that a hunter should do what is comfortable for him or her. While the common trend today is to get a big magnum bolt action rifle and blow your shoulder off, for most hunters a lever action rifle is just fine. The lever action rifle will probably never die due to America's love of the Cowboy era, but the lever action should never die as a hunting rifle either.
