    After 25 years of reasonably cautious reloading practices, I must say that
    the leverevolution ammo strikes me as a little hot. The 45-70 ammo has
    a warning not to use in the older rifles, but the .35 ammo has no warning.
    Does anyone know if it is considered safe in the old Remington 141's?

    smokeless powder has been around since 1893.

    The Remington 141 since 1936. I'm betting it's safe, believing that the firearm is in good shooting condition

    +1 on kanook's comment. Since the .45-70 gov't was originally a black powder gun, the older "black powder" models might not be made as strong as those made after .45-70 ammo started being produced with smokeless powder.

    The other lever-action rifle calibers that I can think of (.30-30 Win, .35 Rem, etc.) are all smokeless-developed cartridges, and therefore wouldn't have that potential issue.

    My 141 has a 4 digit serial number. I'm thinking it may be closer to 1937 than 1950. Anyone else out there still use one for deer hunting.
