Any one have a Marlin 1895 chambered by Dave Clements for the .348 DC ? It's a necked down 45-70 shortened to 2". We exchanged e-mail and he said it will throw a 250 grain bullet at 2,300 fps mv from a 22" barrel. That is what I have been wanting, only in .35 caliber. He said it would cost a bunch for him to start over in a different caliber. I like the 45-70 round, yet I think a .35 caliber on the 45-70 case would make a great medium bore lever action round. The .338 Marlin Express just does not do it for me. Problem with the .348 DC for me is it's a base price of $950.00 on my 1895. I could find a Browning or new Mod. 71 .348 Winchester for what I would have into this conversion. I doubt Marlin will ever make what I want in a .35 caliber. Seems like everyone wants to turn a tubular fed magazine lever gun into a long range performer. Woe is me!
