This very potent 45-70 load offers power and accuracy.  2,020 FPS is achieved with the mere 18.5″ of the venerable Marlin Guide Guns.  Recoil is a push- a very hard, heavy, push. Inadequate eye relief WILL result in a scope cut.  This load is in safe in strong actions, including modern lever action rifles and single shots.  This round offers you the ability to take full advantage of your modern rifle’s performance potential.
