I do. I have steel plates at 100, 150, 200 and 240 meters that I plink on regularly.

I also have a 24" Henry in addition to a few Win 9422's and a Marlin 39A. The Henry shoots as well as any of them.

I shoot both my Marlin .41 Magnum and .444 Marlin out to 200 meters on the handgun silhouette range. We have classes for them to compete in, as a fun side match. Neither wears a scope.

Don't have a rimfire lever action, but if I did, I would shoot it out there also,as I do my other rimfire rifles.

No scope. I use a williams peep sight and a Lyman 17A globe sight with a very small .020" bead insert. It's my basic Lever Action Silhouette setup that I have on all my lever guns.

I'm constantly experimenting with ammo. Been shooting RWS, Geco and Norma, but I recently bought a brick Eley Force that absolutely shoots light out. Got a case of it coming and my fingers are crossed that it shoots as well as that brick.

Sounds like fun. I have full sets of 1/2 scale animals on my 100 meter range. I think I'll drag a set over to the 200 meter range next time I have guests over. That should be a fun little challenge shooting off hand with iron sight lever guns.
