    45-70 Marlin/Ideal tool?

    I just got myself a birthday present that I always wanted but pretty much gave up on...

    ...well,it's here now! I absolutely don't need it but I love it.



    Adjustable crimp! Yes it seats deep but I will try.



    The mold is a joy to cast with,open it and the bullet just drops. The whole tool is solid and tight!



    I shoot a Marlin 1895 SBL so I appreciate the Marlin stamp. Now all we need is summer.

    Nice, that dates to 1910 through 1915.
    1st hole in the frame is for recapping, 2and is boolit sizer.

    Thank you for the date,pun intended.

    I will figure out a primer decapper, Lee trimmer part will work,sort of loose fit though, but maybe 310 Shop can make a proper one.

    Nice looking tool,mine is in poor condition, with a somewhat damaged cavity from someone digging out the bullets with a screwdriver or knife blade. It leaves a fin of lead on the nose, but I can easily trim it off with a knife to make them look good. A decapping pin was easily made from piece of mild steel, one end turned to the profile of the bullet, the other end tapered to slide easily into the fired case. The pin was glued in with Loctite, so if I somehow bent it, just heat it and pull it out. You can easily make it with a drill press and a file, and a couple beers

    Not sure 310 shop is still in business. I wish someone could give a definite answer.

    Looks like kitty approves of those frog green boolits too.
