Ken Water's "Pet Loads" shows a top load of 48 grains of 3031 with the Hornady 350 grain bullet for Marlin lever actions. You can't work up in the usual sense, because normal pressure signs don't show up in the .45-70 until long after pressures are dangerously high. I'd still load a series of 45, 46, 47, and 48 grains before settling on the most accurate.

Your English is fine. It's my English that's likely to be the problem.
