Anyone shooting this combo?

Looking to run a cast 405 in a Marlin 1895.
Thinking of starting with Varget loads and working from there.

Love LVR and rather not slum anything else.

I might try it one of these days. Right now the 45-70 is just my iron sight slut and burns whatever I feel like. I have a microgroove 1895, plenty of lever, & cast & jacketed 405s. However I still need a die for the LAM2 before I can use my own 405s. I haven't slugged the tube, but I imagine .460 or .461 will do. Hoping microgrooves don't cause me any grief that requires fine tuning; I've only used lighter & paper patched as-cast pistol boolits as far as lead goes. I might be able to run soft 405s sized down for paper patching if they do give me fuss.

I worry it might be too slow.

Sounds like you have a plan.

Let me know how it goes.

Lucky me, I have brass all prepped & primed.. Found my cast 405s but not my jacketed yet. Think I know where I left 'em though. Casting big 458s @ 3 cents apiece has its appeal, I just haven't gotten everything I want to run 'em yet. I might be able to leave some chrono numbers in the coming days.
