Well, lets see, Ive had my Marlin since about 68, and it has served me well. Lately Ive been reloading the 265 in her with a healthy dose of 4198, and she groups an inch or under at 100. A few years ago I acquired a couple Model 71's from a friend of mine and have been using them for hunting elk in the timber. Since Hornady is the only provider of bullets for reloading, Ive been keeping them in bussiness. What I would like,is to be able to use the heavier bullets . I dont have much faith in the 200 grainers, for bigger game. If MARSHALL isnt able to hook me up with some of his heavier rounds for the 71's Ill have to use the 444.
Ive recently have loaded up some 300 grainers for the 444 with 51.6 grains of H322 and she groups wonderfully, but the recoil is brutal to say the least. But iam confident that the load will do the trick if the opportunity presents itself.
