    Hello,

    I’ve heard some rumors, Remington will produce the 1895 in .450 Marlin again, as soon as they get enough orders for it.
    Can anyone confirm this?

    It would surprise me, but then again we're talking about Remington. I think the reason that Marlin stopped production was it didn't sell well enough. Don't hold your breath.

    I do believe that the 450 Marlin ammunition was a better design than the 45-70, for lever guns. Less problems with marlin jams, and ejection difficulties. People that still have a 450 Marlin in excellent condition want big bucks for them.

    Is there a ballistic advantage to the 450 Marlin over the 45/70?

    Yes, if you want to stay within the SAAMI or CIP pressurelimits.
    I know, this is well discussed all over the internet, and several suppliers (like hodgdon, Barnes, Speer,...) offer load datas especially for newer 1895 Marlins, and so on....
    But the simple reality is: there are official pressure limits, especially in europe (CIP).
    I‘m married and father of two children. If I blew myself up, just because I‘m too greedy (or lazy) to buy a suitable gun that fits to the needs (I imagine) I have, no insurance ever will care nor pay a single cent.

    How will they ever get any orders when everyone knows they were discontinued years back. No one would even think to order one if they don't advertise them as being available to the general public. If it's not on their website then it's prob wishful thinking.

    Compared to the 45-70, the .450 Marlin provides a SAAMI approved +P type round that cannot be loaded into an older design rifle creating a pressure and safety issue, unlike the 45-70. However due to larger case capacity the 45-70 can be and is safely loaded to levels that out perform the .450.
    However nothing prevents one from shoving a hot 45-70 load or one of the boutique rounds into Grand Pappy's Springfield Trapdoor and turning it into a pipe bomb.

    I sold mine a LONGGGG time ago. No regrets. It was an answer to a question that didnt need to be asked. Save the hate mail, if you have one and like it, good

    Cool

    I invested in 45-70 because ammunition is plentiful, but not necessary cheap. However, there are lot of choices out there. Being that I have had as many as 3 Marlins chambered in 45-70 it was a good investment. I down sized the number of rifles I own, when money gets tight, people will always find the $$$ for a portable cannon.

    I hope to be back on my feet this spring and out looking for Coyotes again. Of course, I don't carry a portable cannon when I'm hunter varmints.
