As the title says I have a Marlin 1894 CB in 45 Colt unfired. It has been in the safe vice a number of moves and now that I am retired and done gone for long periods of time, I figure it is time to break it out and see what she will do. Any suggestions on loads would be appreciated.

tikkanut, As for plans I really have not thought that far out on this one. When I got it I was thinking cowboy action shooting but I do not think that is in the future So plinking and maybe some hunting.

Thanks for the link.

Well, 8.5 grains of Unique or Universal and a 250 grain RNFP cast bullet should do well for plinking or woods hunting.
