Re: LGS ALERT! "Guns you never see for sale" Marlin 1894CSS in .357

Many practical folks would say that levergun is the ULTIMATE 'only-one-gun' carbine.

That's why you use 7+F for flash/pan prime and 1-2f in large rifles and cannon. The larger the grains, the slower the burn even if the absolute volume of gas is the same.
