Side note: When Marlin developed the .444 rifle, it was originally the Model 336 in 444 Magnum in 1963. Very few were made this way. This rare variation isn't even discussed in Col. Brophy's book on Marlins. The catalogue came out in 1964 displaying the new Marlin 444 in .444 Marlin. I've never seen one, but I understand that Remington produced some of the early cartridges in boxes labeled 444 magnum.
