Not my handy work; that stock work was done by David Janac of Caldwell, Texas.

Beautiful wood and impressive  craftsmanship.  I hope you post photos of the completed  project. Did you do the checkering?  I like the  pattern you chose.

I guess the old 200 grain FP is discontinued. I just saw these listed in an upcoming auction.  (You need to Login or Register to view media files and links)

Correct bullet choice is often overlooked as is the placement. You don't want a bullet that goes in one side and out the other and expels all of the shock and energy into the dirt. That should take place inside the animal and the most humane way is a high just behind the shoulder shot. The shock goes right to the spinal cord and the nervous system and along with the energy they drop dead right on the spot and I used 90 grain Seirra's in my 270.

I'm so envious!  Smiley
Wonderful rifle/cartridge combo - so incredibly lovely and with a "traditional" and especially useful chambering for North American big game. Recoil with heaviest loads should be minimal considering the way you have it stocked. 

I'd be interested in hearing about how those 200gr. rubber tip Hornady Leverevolution bullets perform at 200+ yds in your Hi-Wall - on large boar hogs in particular.

Not sure what you will be hunting with the 33 wcf but my experience with my 25-35 wcf in a single shot says leave the flat based bullets in the box for use in an 1886 lever action and go with a Nosler 210 grain Partition for most applications and the Nosler 180 gr or 200 gr Accubond  in many situations.  You can load the longer pointed bullets to a longer oal than you can for a lever action and the rifle can stand higher pressure loads than an 1886 as well so might as well take advantage of it.  Hawk bullets makes flat nosed and round tip bullets if you want to go that route but a 210 grain Partition at 2500 fps muzzle velocity would be a 300 yard rifle for elk in my opinion for whatever it is worth.  Re17 would be my powder to try first and then the tried and true IMR 3031.  Nice shootin iron!   Wink  Tom

IMR 4895.
Deer & hogs. Dropped a cow elk last year with my friend's 33.

Fresh off the latest 1940's Ideal Handbook.  Tom


When I had my 1895 Marlin in .33 Win. I used that 195 gr. cast bullet with 18 grs. of 4759 to take a couple mule deer Tom. It was a very accurate load in my 1895, and did the task on mule deer with no trouble at all.
  

Wishing I was ignored by JLouis!
