    Keep the 444 Marlin . Load for it ...load them mild or load them heavy that's what reloading & boolits are all about . Cast boolits in the 444 Marlin are a good match . Dies and brass would be the best way to go in my mind . Gary

    I agree...with one cycle of the 450 handle the boolit is sized , lubed and if desired a gas check is seated ...in , out, done...ready to shoot . It just doesn't get any faster or easier. Gary
