My brother recently purchased a new Remlin GBL. The fit and finish matches my JM-proofed GBL, however, it came missing the trigger plate support screw which installs from the left side of the receiver. We plan on shooting it for the first time tomorrow and the screw being sent from Ilion hasn't arrived yet. Is it safe to shoot a box of Beartooth 425 gr, 50 gr H322 45/70's without it?

Just ran the numbers for your load in my Quickload software.....


Step Fill. Charge Vel. Energy Pmax Pmuz Prop.Burnt B_Time
% % Grains fps ft.lbs psi psi % m
+00.0 106 50.00 1864 3287 43334 5043 96.1 1.223 !DANGEROUS LOAD-DO NOT USE!

Not sure if that load is safe at all...screw missing or not. Have you worked up to this level in your load development?

You can shoot it without that screw. More than anything it supports the trigger plate during cycling. I have an old 1893 from before they started putting it there & with the lever open you can twist the triggerplate slightly. Wether or notthat particular load is safe I cant say. You could always just use a screw from another Marlin temorarilly.

This load is straight from Marshall Stanton, Beartooth Bullets. Actually, he gave me three loads, 47, 50, and 53 grains of H322. I worked with all three loadings but Marshall stated that 50 gr was his go-to load and I standardized on it. This is a common load for people using his 425 gr piledriver jr bullet. I use Winchester brass and LR primers. I've shot several boxes of this load through my GBL and it doesn't feel any more punishing than factory leverevolutions.
