Nice when a plan comes together.
Well done sir.
Very nice! That rifle and load is a long way up the chart from your obvious favorite the 38 WCF. Thanks for sharing the picture of your hunt, very beautiful country there behind you.
Nice deer and rifle.
What is the 348 DC? I am not familiar with that one.
Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should only be able to beat you to death with it because you have fired all your bullets.

Nice deer and congratulations. I am also curious about a 348dc.
.348 DC: This is our newest caliber offering for the 1895 Marlin in .45/70 and should prove to be superior to any medium bore cartridge for the Marlin to date. It is made from the .45/70 case necked down to .348 caliber and shortened to 2". No fireforming is needed. Maximum OAL length is 2.55". Bullets are available from Hornady, Barnes, and Hawk along with a few custom makers. Velocities are as follows from a 22" barrel: 180 gr. @2700, 200 gr. @2600, 220 gr. @2500, 250 gr. @2300. The cartridge is easy to load and seems to be at its best with Reloader 15. Conversion to the .348 DC includes a new match grade barrel from 18-24" long, reinstall factory sights if wanted, and a set of Hornady custom dies with all reloading and case forming data. $925 on your 1895 .45/70. $1425 on mine. Many options are available to add to this if desired.
