I am shooting a Marlin 1895 45-70 with a 22 inch barrel with Ballard rifling. The bullets are 420 GC cast over 41 grains of IMR 4198, does anyone know the velocity on this load. :?: Thanks , John :D

Well if it helps, RCBS says that their 425g (.458") FN Cast bullet will fly out of a Marlin 1895 at 1703 fps with 41.0 grains of IMR 4198

Marlin loads

Thats about what I was guessing at around 1600 to 1700 fps on the speed. 8) I am going to be going to the range with a buddy soon who has a chronograph and I will post results, John
