I bought a 1895 Marlin over 2 months ago. LNIB made in 1993. I had a heck of a time getting the right loads put together. After a new 5D Willliams peep, new recoil pad, due to the heavy loads when working my way up the load ladder, 3 moulds, (thanks to Slingshot for sending me some 457193 bullets ) 4 different powders and 3 different lubes I hit paydirt . Lyman 457124, 40 grns of IMR 4198, and BAC lube. I was about ready to give up. I think my wife was ready to commit me..I would literally get out of my truck from the range, talking to myself (hand jestures, including group sizing as I was talking, walking and shaking my head) and disappear into the man room , make up another batch and head back to the range with clipboard in hand (fortunately I only live about a 1/2 mile away). All is well again until Miha gets the 325 grn mould ready to go on the group buy. Thanks to everyone on this forum for their advice and years of experiance !
