Currect Rifle Cartridges
The 450 Marlin is a belted, rimmed, rifle cartridge introduced in the year 2000 by Marlin
Firearm Company for the Model 1895M lever-action rifle.
The cartridge is based on the 458 Winchester Magnum, basically a shorter version of the
458 Winchester Magnum and useful for hunting big game up to 150 / 175 yards.
A 350 grain projectile will have a velocity of 2100 Feet per second and 3,427 foot pound per
square inch.
Very close to the same as a modern heavy loaded 45-70.
