Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I just could not pass it bye - I have some Cabales bucks so it took off almost all tax! looked for some Hornedy lever bullets but none left on the shelf! so I might have to go to G.M to buy some so I can shoot it this week end.

There's something so special about a 45-70 ain't there. Congrats on the great purchase!

You can soup up the loads pretty well but use caution. Use the loading data that is specific to the Marlin. The Ruger single shot data is too hot for the Marlin. The 45-70 in the Ruger 1 shot is only 200fps below the 458 Win Mag. I used to load for both and had to keep the ammo separate and color coded. Do not use the really old shells as some were balloon head not solid head.
