      The most recent issue of Handloader magazine had this article. Somewhat interesting. I’ve never heard much about that cartridge.

      It’s a .338 Federal in a lever gun. Considered good for moose and bear in it’s day. If I had an ’86 in .33 Winchester I would be good for the rest of my days.

      I’m more greedy. I would like several, in several different calibers.
      45-70 of course
      .40-82
      .40-65 in a lightweight rifle
      And maybe a .38-56

      33 Winchester is intriguing, but .348 WCF, especially the AI version?
      …….moves me.
      I believe that little number is on my bucket list!

      I owned a takedown 86 in .33 win for a short while.
      I formed cases from the .45/70.
      They didn’t hold up for many firings , but I should have annealed them after forming.

      I liked the rifle fine,but traded it for something I wanted more at the time.

      For a cast bullets rifle in the model 86 win I liked the .38/56 better.

      I had one of the brownings when they came out. With 200 gr. factory ammo the sights hit 20″ high on the lowest notch in the ramp. Loaded to original specs with the 250 gr Barnes original they were right on. Without those Barnes 250’s, the .348 is a no go for me. Doesn’t matter though cause that rifle is long gone…
