    Remington 45-70 Ammo

    was at a gunshow today one seller had remington 45-70 ammo 300 gr jacketed. New ammo & the box was marked " full pressure loads". Is this ammo safe to shoot in the modern day Marlin 45-70 rifles?

    YES......Our 1895's handle it just fine.
    The "full pressure loads" wording concern me ....I haven't noticed that before from Remington..?

    I just looked it up......states right on the box...."NOT FOR USE IN ALL RIFLES"......our Marlins are safe.

    What would full pressure mean in a 45-70? Not safe in a trap door Springfield?

    Lyman puts the 45-70 into 3 sections according to action strength. the trapdoors the weakest the 1886's & the old marlin 1895's & the third being the new marlins & the rugers no 1. this is for safety & reloading

    A modern day Marlin 1895 is a hell for strong rifle.
    The 300 is not one of the real hot loads. Marlin 1895 will shoot it easily.
    The 300 might look strong while it is blowing up an old Springfield Trapdoor ect...
    But modern Marlin lever actions can shoot hotter loads, and heavier bullets than the 300.

    Yes, Lyman does separate the 45-70 into 3 levels. But some clarification is needed. First and foremost, the new Marlin's will not handle the pressure of the Ruger loads. You may want to do some research before posting potentially dangerous information. Not trying to offend you, just wanted to clarify one thing so no one gets injured.

    444Pistol you beat me to it. As you posted a Marlin will not handle Ruger number one loads at least not on my shoulder.
