Went to Bisley yesterday to try out my new toy Marlin SBL in 45-70. Fantastic thump when you pull the trigger. I'm gonna enjoy this, made up a batch of reloads which I think were on the mild side 27grn Lovex D060 which is equivilant to Accurate 5744 under a 405grn LBFN and gave them a good crimp as I've heard that it helps with the unburnt powder problems associated with 5744. Only tried them on the zero range just because I wanted to pull the trigger and was well pleased. Does anyone on here have any suggestions with load data they have tried different bullets etc. I would be interested on your findings. Also on any hunting loads as will be trying it on Deer and Boar when I get the chance. Will be playing on the 100yrd range soon so accurate paper punching loads wanted also
Good time ahead......
