    1. Great ammo

      After buying my marlin, found these online for a great price. Took 5 shots to get sighted in., one shot to take it's first deer...very impressed with the grouping and consistency of this ammo...Highly recommend!! on Dec 7th 2017


      Fit, finish and function in my Marlin 1895 GBL are all 5 stars. I have much confidence in this round as it penetrated 12" of lumber during my initial testing.. I get a lot of repeatable shots but not as easy to shoot as a BR varmint caliber. Search the internet for a better value. You won't find one. on Dec 3rd 2017

    3. Awesome stuff!

      Accuracy was way better than I expected. Shot almost 1/2" groups at 100 yards, which was tighter than the leverevolution that I usually use. Great ammo, great price, best value out there! on Sep 26th 2017

    4. Great ammo!

      Cosmetically perfect. Packs a wallop. Acculturate enough for my applications. on Aug 20th 2017

    5. Not tested

      Although I have not used these rounds yet, they look of good quality and the price per round delivered for new rounds is unbeatable. on Jul 7th 2017

    6. Would definitely buy again

      Great experience. Ammo delivered really quickly. This is a beast of a load, but it shot accurately out of my short barrel lever gun. on Jul 7th 2017

    7. Excellent

      Nice groups , lots of power ! Packed in a nice reusable box.

      From XCaliber 7/7/17: We're glad to hear you had such a good experience! Please note we are currently working on a custom box for our 45/70 loads now. In the meantime, you will receive either a smoke (gray) MTM hard plastic box or a generic white folding carton with styrofoam tray.

    8. Accurate and powerful

      Turns clay pots to dust . Cant wait for deer season! on Jun 20th 2017

    9. Very, very accurate!

      Shot a sub MOA group out of a Marlin 1895 45-70 rifle using this ammo. This load is purely awesome! on Aug 23rd 2016
