i have a marlin 1895 gbl in 45-70 i bought earlier in the year and it was really tough to load. a couple hundred rounds later and just some loading and unloading with dummy rounds has really loosened it up a lot. its getting easier to load as it gets used.

I Do the same thing

I'm sorry guys....I even deleted a post....Guys, grow a pair. I've loaded my 336, my buddy's 94 and come on they are not that hard to load. Yes, they may get a little stiff when towards the end of the tube but to the point you can't load them?? If your thumb hurts so badly that you can't continue after loading 6 or 7 rounds...it's time to turn in your man card.

Please, I'm the manliest man here I play highschool football. And I can take the pain. I was just wondering if there was a way to fix it. Might as well not have it.

My new marking also requires manly skills to load. Always assumed it would break in and become a bit easier but didn't ask the question so as not to risk confiscation of my Man card.

I suggest this item to EVERYONE who shoots...it makes all the difference in the world if used daily...
It gives one exceptional finger strength in a few minutes a day, use it while watching American Guns/Sportsman Channel shows
http://www.awma.com/productdetail/1595-eagle-catcher.html

NOTE: Use your Index finger, pulling with the tip for raising your trigger finger strength...
makes a 5# trigger feel like a 2.5# after a few weeks

I get a giggle when folks complain about 7.5 pound rifle being heavy...heck, 50 pound suitcases ain't heavy...if you are strong!!
If your body is strong, your mind is strong (as long as you don't use steroids...melt yer brain...LOL),
& being able to rip a car door off its hinges can be a valuable resource

For that matter, get a practice sword and swing it for 30 minutes a day...you'll build muscles you never knew you had!!
Plus it'll come in handy for the inevitable Zombie Apocalypse...cardio, cardio, cardio...
kinda funny to get into a swordfight and find out that the other guy is worn out after a minute...SCA!!

The average person when in a fight, wears out fast...if you can build some muscle, do yer cardio, and practice SOMETHING every day...
you tend to last longer...and in a fight, that can make all the difference in the world!!

TO apply strength to shooting applications, you can hold steadier, shoot longer, be more precise, maintain a lower heart rate,
and carry more stuff than the average schmuck...its why the Army puts such high emphasis on Physical Activity!!

Any suggestions?
The same thing here I think it's just because it's new
