Which one is stronger?
The Marlin Guide Gun/1894 series or new (Miroku) Winchester 1886? When it comes to reloading manuals for the .45-70 the three levels are for factory/Trapdoor, Marlin or Ruger #1. Why isn't the 1886 ever mentioned? I've heard/read that the Winchester is at least as strong as the Marlin and maybe stronger.
What about my Handi Rifle and 15-yr. old Uberti 1885 Highwall? How "hot" can I go on them? I wish the books were a little more inclusive. I'm not looking for elephant loads, just some clarification on what I can load to in my guns. Thanks.
