Hello everyone

:hmmmm:Will my 450 marlin die's work for reloading 45-70? I can't think of a reason why not, but maybe someone here knows different?

Thanks

Ha! Well, I've never tried it, I have both calibers and die sets for each, but normally if a set of dies works for multiple calibers, it will say so. Not saying it won't but it's not something I'd play around with. Be careful if you try it!

IMHO,
I would spend the money for the 45-70 dies just to get the full length sizing of the case just above the rim. The 450 is belted so it will not size as far down.

Im sure the dimensions are not the same, but if full length sizing is not needed in sure they'd work in a pinch. the expander and seating die should work inless the bottom of the dies are too skinny.

One way to find out:)
