    45/70 dies brass etc.

    Just wanting to start reloading for an old marlin I have had in the back of the safe for a while.
    I'm after dies brass and projectiles, also any load data for a good pig/deer load.

    Also after some dovetail bases for it, cheers.

    Projectiles and dies can be found at Reloaders, Gunworks, Outdoor supplies, workshop innovation to name a few. There is Starline brass on TM, $80 for 50 not a bad price.

    Powder wise, adi2207 and 2206h work well.

    My loads are as follows:

    60gr 2206h
    Hornady 300gr jhp @ 1910fps

    58gr 2206h
    Hornady 350gr fp @ 1860fps

    Faster speeds can be achieved with 2207.

    All loads are through my guide gun (18.5inch barrel) and are 1 inch when I do my part. Nothing Ive shot has walked away really hits with authority.

    That 500gr sinker will anchor anything as you will see once the smoke clears.

    Photos - gun and wound channels - out of curiosity to see how it performs.
    What is it about this caliber that gets people going - me included? Its hardly cutting edge but its so cool!
    I have a perfectly good centerfire but want a 45/70!
