I saw a video about it. I might be interested in doing this. Who does it and what is the cost involved? Also where can one get "stronG'45-90 brass that are safe at Marlin pressures?
No, the action lengthening increases the allowable COL 2.85" versus the 2.55" of the .45-70. IE, given the same bullet you have 0.30" (almost 1/3") extra length for more powder.I kind of wonder if you'd have to seat the bullet so deeply as to negate the lenghting of the action so the longer case will fit.????
Would powder capacity still be about the same?? Just curious.
David Clay, he did it for me. You can call him at 7836099 or 8210247, both with the Ft. Worth TX area code that begins with 8. Prices are 500-700 depending on what is involved.I listened to it twice and it sounded like David Clay or Clegg--couldn't tell for sure.
