450 Marlin

.450 Marlin was jointly developed by Marlin and Hornady. Mitch Mittelstaedt of Hornady is credited with the final design.

Marlin felt there was a market for heavy bullet brush guns that bettered the ballistics of the 45-70. Hence it came out with the .450 Marlin. The .450 Marlin was used to work with high pressures. Bullets typically in the range of 300-grain to 400-grain can be packed in a .450 Marlin cartridge.

If a 350-grain bullet is fired from a lever action rifle, then the maximum bullet speed achieved is around 2000 feet per second. A shooter can get a point blank range of about 190 yards. The Bullet Drop is only about 5" at a distance of about 225 yards.

This performance makes the .450 Marlin a good choice for both the Deer size games as well as the big animal games. So a hunter with a .450 Marlin can shoot a deer, elk, moose, wild boar or a hog. As far as the powder selection is concerned, different manufacturers seem to advocate different powders. Hornady suggest that H4198 is the best choice. Others suggest that RL-7 and VIHT N - 130 are the best when using a .450 Marlin.

The plus points for a .450 Marlin are that it is a standard factory loaded cartridge with handloading components available easily on the market. Hence shooters preferring to handload can use it easily. .450 Marlin is a popular cartridge when it comes to hunting in heavy brush. It is also used in Handguns (Encore) with great results. It cannot be chambered in the old time .45-70 rifles.
