Regarding pressure, I have heard it said that Marlin did extra heat treatment to the receivers of their 1895M and 336 ER rifles.  Presumably, this was to accomodate the higher pressure of the 450 Marlin and 356 Winchester calibers.  Can someone tell me if this is indeed true?  And did Winchester do likewise, or did they accomodate additional pressure by "simply" beef-up the rear of the receivers on their big-bores?
