Marlin 1894 357 Magnum and Loads of Bacon

I got a package from Loads of Bacon of his world renown coated and bacon lubed bullets. Normally I load my medium velocity 357 Magnum rounds with HS-6. Just upon completing some 10MM testing with BE-86 and like the performance and velocity I was seeing with it I decided to use BE-86 in 357 Magnum.

The Beginnings The M1A was designed by Elmer C. Ballance of the Springfield Armory Inc. in 1974.  The AR-10 rifle was developed by Eugene Stoner in 1955 and was manufactured by ArmaLite.

Let's test a 225gr full wadcutter and a 230gr hollow point and see if the 45 Colt is still capable after 147 years of service and if it remains relevant to this day.
