Good morning Hillbilly.
Sorry, never owned a Henry.
The reviews are good and the caliber definitely has it benefits.

Never shot one, but when I did handle one, it seemed very heavy. But the action cycled smoothly and seemed well built.

I've got two Henrys, a Big Boy in 357mag and a standard issue blue 22mag. I already had a Winchester Trapper carbine in 44mag.
Back to the Henrys. Well balanced, action like butter. The 357 is a little heavy due to the octagonal barrel, but it's an excellent shooter, as is the 22mag. The only issue some guys have with a Henry is they don't have a side loading gate. The tube magazine has to be removed to reload, which makes reloading on the move problematic. That aside, they're a particularly nice lever gun.
