Not to mention, it could cause the pressure to spike when shooting .45 Colt rounds if not well cleaned. This is one of the reasons that I don't shoot specials in any of my magnum guns. I shoot cast...

Not knowing anything about the loads you were shooting in your Marlin, I can only guess as to why you only saw 1600fps. It is not uncommon to see velocities that are somewhat less than those...
