Kirby,
Not suprised at the accuracy of your big bore Marlin as I have heard many similar stories. I bought a Marlin 1895SS .45/70 topped with a Burris 1.75-5 at the Tulsa gun show in the early 90's. The guy I bought it from had some handloads that he claimed shot well and gave me the load recipe. Well, the first 3 300 gr HP's landed exactly center bull and the group measured 0.47" at 100 yards. It continues to turn in that type of accuracy so I have never bothered to try a different load. Deer and hogs seem to be quite impressed with it as well.
Glad to hear your big bore is a tack driver. Gotta love those Marlins!

It is Screwbean Mesquite and I forgot that that one is a 308 Marlin opppssss. Will put the pic of the big one up later which is the only one of its kind built by Marlin (as is the 308 as well) and not somebody else.

Also found it rather funny that when they ran my blanks through thier process the screwbean checkered just like the soft walnut they run. Carbide is tougher than any wood LOL.

Kirby, I have an XLR in 45/70 & I would have never believed a lever gun could shoot like that!!

Bought a marlin 1895m in the 450 the first year out and topped it off with a 4x lupy very accurate although I only shoot at about 100 yards. I love letting my friends shoot it as they usually end up leaking a red fluid after words. Great on woodchucks.
