    Marlin 45-70

    prob a big mistake, but its been sitting in the safe for 2 years,
    moved onto 22 wildcats

    I bought it second hand 3-4 years ago for a bush gun
    And started collecting reloading gear for it then
    Shot a few animals with it, funnily enough all over 50m and the 1st one 160 yards

    Was going to trim back barrel and suppress it but couldn’t bring myself to do it

    If i let this go it has to go with all the loading gear as i wont get back into this calibre

    Rifle i believe is an original Marlin (not a rem manufactured model)
    Has the longer micro groove barrel, scope bases with a 1 yr old Leupold 2-7 compact scope
    Side spur on hammer

    1 new and ¼ bottle 2207
    Lee crimp die (near new)
    Hornady 3 die set (near new)
    Hornady shall holder
    17 3x times fired Hornady Lever shells
    New packet (20x) Hornady lever revolution with 325 FTX (shoot very well)
    40 odd Starline cases 1 or 2 firing and green shell holder
    33x 250 gr Hornady Monoflex jelly tips
    12x 350gr Hornady jacketed round nose
    8x 325gr Hornady FTX jelly tips
    45x 300 gr Jacketed Hollow points

    Has been a lot of fun, mid to mild hunting loads are great to shoot all day long
    Max loads with 350gn + projectiles rattle your jaw

    Have reload data that will go with rifle
