Sad thing for me is, I'm shooting a replica Springfield trapdoor, fromwhat I've read, they don't take as much pressure as a Marlin or other .45/70. The load I found for trapdoors using IMR3031, was 36gr behind a 350gr bullet. I loaded up 10 rnds, but haven't shot any yet.
I would really like to mimic a factory load marked "safe for all rifles", with various powders, due largly to the non-availability of powders. Unfortunately, I only have IMR 3031 and 4198 on hand, I do have some other on backorder.
I have loads for most of my rifles figured out EXCEPT, MY BIG question, Does anyone have a load, for .44 mag using IMR3031? This to be used in a Marlin 1894?
I have many large pistol primers, many .44 bullets, many .45/70 bullets, few large rifle primers.We all know the delimma.
