    I have the same great Marlin 1895. This is the information I have been looking for and I am anxious to try these loads in mine.

    I have some 400 grain Speers and IMR 3031. What brass and primers did you use?

    Thanks for posting and the picture.

    That is very good shooting.

    Too Late. Those darn "itis" diseases are inflammatory for sure. Already caught SingleShotitis, Winchesteritis, and now Contenderitis on top of the original Marlinitis infection.

    Hey Chips - nice groups. For me and my 1895, that Speer 400-grain JSP is also very accurate (the most accurate jacketed bullet in my rilfe). I haven't gotten .75" groups at 100 meters, but, with the Speer 400, I consistently get 1 to 1.5" groups at 100 yards. Not QUITE as tight as yours, but certainly my rifle/bullet combo is more accurate than me, so to speak. BTW, it's also accurate enough for deer. I've lost count of the deer I've clobbered with the 400-grain Speer (MV of 1,800 fps). Longest shot so far has been 163 yards (or, since you live north of the 49th parallel, that's 149.0472 meters).

    Here's the rifle. A 1895 SS made in 1981. Leupold 1.5 -5 scope.

    I had to raise the comb quite a bit to get a good cheek weld. I did it with a piece of wood taped down with vetwrap and the cartridge cuff. No glue or screws, but it is solid.

    It was gifted to me and had never been taken hunting until I got it last year.

    I took it elk hunting, but could not get close enough to an elk for a shot.

    I did get a nice 4x3 Mule deer though. I used the 350 grain load for that.

    The 350gr lload uses 53gr. of 3031, winchester brass, Remington LR primers

    The 400 gr. load - 51.5gr. 3031 Federal brass and Remington primers
