I have been unsuccessful at finding information on reloading 444 marlin pistol loads? I know there people with TC pistols in 444 Marlin?
I have been using rifle rounds which probably throw out 1/3 of the powder or is burning it out the end of the barrel - want to find a good 12 inch 444 load data?
It should be a faster burning powder than the useless rifle - this coming from some one who has never reloaded before - but i have an AMT AutoMag III 30 carbine with the same rifle/pistol cartridge problem? It is 8.5 inch barrel shooting M1 rounds for rifles as well?
I have a single stage reloader that i was given and was going to use it for my 45 win mag, 444 marlin and 30 carbine cartridges - but want to pin down reloading data or just keep using rifle cartridges? 45 win mag has good commercial loads but i figure i will save brass and load some?
Any help on 12 inch 444 marlin (or M1 30 carbine 8.5 - found all kinds of 7.5 blackhawk loads which have to be better than rifle loads) - i wish i had the twist rate, watched Larry potterfield do it on midway usa but cant think now - not sure how much difference would make? I have shot off hand at 100 6 inch plate and hit it so it shoots good - except it weigh over 7lbs with 6 shells in and you squeeze off on the way down almost?
single six will have to be done from front of barrel? i also have the lever 444 and want to use the hornady leverrevolution rounds but -- seems a waste in my pistol?
Pistol was made in 1985 in evansville indiana, eagle one #33 - phelps mfg (was a lock company i heard from sister in law who lives in evansville), iron sights, brown bluing
so if you think you cant buy 444 ammo and that its less power than a 45/70 - you would be wrong - unless you have a 1;38 twist with 240 grain factory shells, 2200 with 240 grains and people are saying is it effective for whitetails?
I wish they offered pistol ammo in 444
