Forgive me if this has been answered before
I purchased 158 gr Buffalo Bore in 357 to try in my 1894
I assume it is perfectly safe-correct?

Yes. In fact on their website they mention velocities recorded with their loads in a Marlin 1894. You bought Item 19C. And I quote:

18.5-inch Marlin 1894
a. Item 19A/20-180gr. Hard Cast = 1851 fps
b. Item 19B/20-170gr. JHC = 1860 fps
c. Item 19C/20-158gr. Jacketed Hollow Point = 2153 fps---- Can you believe this?!!!
d. Item 19D/20-125gr. Jacketed Hollow Point = 2298 fps---- Or this?!!!

I’d be real curious if the jhp’s they’re using will hold together at impact with those velocities. Im loading a bunch of various jhp’s for mine and the top speed recommended is 1500fps. Actually have to download a bit and will still be above that at the muzzle.
