While visiting the Marlin Firearms talk site Dave Clay posted he has a successful conversion of the M1895 to 50-110 Win. He's also working on a 45 and 50 Texan to be bigger then the 450 annd 50 Alaskan. Some people must love recoil or are gluttons for punshment.:O

EL LOBO, My CJ-5 had a 350cu in Chevvy in it. Loved it for 19yrs, but sold it in a weak moment and it was in the boneyard in 2months. For fun I like 300gr Rem HP's out of my #3 45-70 at 2450fps. I also like 405's at 2150. A #3 only weighs 6.5# but I've shot numerous groups in the .3" range and these two loads plus a 330gr cast will group in an 1" at 100yds, mix or match as you desire. My original reason for the 50-110 post was to get a feel for the cartridge off the Marlin website and believe me that's where the only real interest lies for 50-110's in any great indicated desires. Whether they all get built will be another story.

Since the levergun section is getting some attention, I'll bring this subject up again. My original post was to point out the engineering expertise available form the various gunsmiths. The 50-110Win really  will be a difficult round to use and contol in a 7-8pound firearm.
