    I was offered 250gr 45/70 at $46/box of 20 last week. Sorry, had to pass. Too light, and too pricey. (I do have some 405s, so there is that consideration)

    For the pre-1990 marlin 336 rifles there is a new style and old style firing pin. They are said to be interchangeable.

    New style is skeletonized. Perhaps to make it lighter and less likely to fire a round if dropped was one opinion. I suspect that one can use pistol primers in 30-30 or 35 remington is needed. Pressures of most loads are mild relative to pressures.

    I have a 60s 336 and have never had a problem with the firing pin. The model 94 my Dad has is from the 90s and doesn't have very many rounds, so I can't comment there.

    I just loaded up some 45-70 for my trap door. 50 rds of 360gr and 20rds of 405.
    Common sense is not a common virtue!
