    Bought a new remlin 1894cb in 45 colt

    I was a bad boy today. I ordered a new 5” half lug blued gp100 on friday. Well they called today and told me it was in. I went to pick it up, and got to talking to the owner. I showed him pictures of my .45c bisley with a leupold scope set up for hunting. He knows I am a reloader, and I told him 45c was probably my favorite caliber. He brought out two new marlins that he said he got a great deal on. One had real pretty wood and he made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. It has a 20” octagon barrel.

    I was excited because my state just passed a law that allows rifles chambered in certain straight walled pistol cartridges to be used for deer hunting. I was at my brother in laws house last weekend for a bbq. Him and his son are my hunting partners. Well, all they would talk about was deer hunting with a lever gun. Today the temptation was just too great, and it came home with me, along with the gp100. If my wife was still alive, I would be going furniture shopping this weekend.
    Sorry for the rambling post!

    You need to be careful about picking up strays.
    Before ya know it, you get very attached to them.
    Everyone can learn from their mistakes.
    However; it's less painful, and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.

    Old age and treachery will always overcome youth, and skill.

    OK folks. Enough of this idle chit chat. This ain't no retirement home.
    EVERYONE!!

    I think I got pictures to work. One is the new lever gun, and the other is my 45 colt blackhawk. Ok, I guess I need a little work on the pictures. I wasn’t expecting three.

    You won't be sorry, it a heck of a deer gun/caliber. I used NOE 280 grain WFN and a stout load of 2400. Neither went twenty feet, complete pass through.Click image for larger version.

    I just acquired that same mold from a member here. I was wondering if they would feed in the new gun. That is good to know. I think my cartridges with that bullet are a little long. I also just got the mp 452-275 wfn hollowpoint.

    It's good to hear these reports about the New Remlins.

    It feeds just fine in the Marlin. I size to .454. It will not feed at all in my 1892 Winchester. I'm in the same buy, I'm hoping it will work in the '92.

    Very nice, is that a stock grip? I was looking at a 4" with full lug and it had the usual rubber grip with wood inlay

    Yes that is the stock grip. I have a matching one in .327 fed. This one is a .357. I also have a .357 6” full lug that I plan to send in for a conversion to .41 special. I will have the barrel cut to 4.2” and slab sided. The factory wood grips on the blued guns are functional, though not outstanding. Both had some front to back play. I shimmed them for a temporary fix, but will either add some epoxy for a more permanent fix, or get some custom grips made. First I will shoot it alot.

    The 45 COLT is a excellent choice for big game at modest ranges. I have taken a few with a 310 LBT A few more with various 300g JSP and a couple with lighter jacketed bullets before I learned heavy was what I wanted.

    I just borrowed a beautiful 290g Ranch Dog mold and Im hoping to make some loads that will
    Preform as well as that old LBT mold. I lent it to someone and I dont remember who and its been gone now for a couple years.

    I have three older Marlins and a newer Rossi PUMA I just picked up. Im worried about this Rossi as it seems to have 1:38 rifling. So may not be so friendly to my preferred heavy for caliber boolits.

    Best of luck with yours!!

    If it was a .41 magnum, the GP100 would be perfect

    I think the cylinder is too short for .41 mag
