You're both close, but Leverdude is closest.
Still left out two standard, but technically different calibers. The 1891/92 were chambered for more than .32 rimfire-hint!
The 1881 had one more "heavier" cartridge than the .45-70. A Marlin only proprietary cartridge-hint.
Lever dude, you hit the 3 instead of the 2 on your ".40-83" cartridge. You are getting tired!
1) I didn't want to get them all or you would accuse me of cheating and typing them down right out of the book!
2) AT LEAST I'M IN SECOND PLACE!!
3) Since my first crack at this I did take the liberty of a little research. I was wrong on the .410 shotgun as this wasn't made until 1929.
4) .32 Long CF which is very similar to .32 Long Colt.
5) The Marlin 1881 was also chambered for .45-85. Is this the cartridge you are asking about? Cartridges of the world makes no mention of the 1881 ever being chambered for .45-85 but Flaydermans does. If this isn't the cartridge you're asking about then I GIVE UP!
Well two more years of this and we can graduate from the mm93 School of Marlin Collecting.
You are correct Geoff. The other two cartridges I was looking for were the .32 CF, and the .45-85 Marlin. The .45-85 is actually a trick question! Marlin advertised this cartridge for the 1881, but in actuality it is the same dimensional size as the .45-90 Win. Good job!
I'm gonna have to dig deeper to stump you guys!
