Well, I have posted the pics of the rifle before, but I had to show off the entire "Squeezer Special".  This is my Marlin 1985 45/70 Guide gun.  It is now topped with a Leupold 2.5x28 Scout scope.  Bought it used from a friend in really good condition.  Can't wait to try it out.  It is my first scout scope (and the first Leupold I have owned, although I have used many).

Looks like fun to me. I've been eyeing one of those with the longer barrel for the last couple of years.   Congratulations

I am a big lever action fan--  Guide guns are fun ...
 
I've have great success with Buffalo Bore 45/70 ammo..Probably the hardest hitting commercial ammo out there ...
Also, can the factory recoil pad- have a gunsmith ( or you could give it a whirl) replace it with a limbsaver or similar pad .You'll be glad you did.

If you are looking for the hottest 45-70 ammo, it is between Buffalo Bore and Garret Cartridges.  Both deserve a thicker recoil pad.

You need to check out Grizzly Ammo.  Mike Rintoul produces some of the very best ammo on the market.

I definitely want to pud a limbsaver on this gun.  I have been shooting the 325 gr Hornady Leverution rounds at 2000 fps.  I can only imagine how hard those Buffulo rounds hit.  Is there any way to load them that hot by yourself?

Not a reloader myself, but I read in this month's Bear Hunter magazine about 45/70 loads one can put together that approach the same numbers as Buffalo Bore's

 Here are Buffalo Bore's 45/70 specs:
   300gr @ 2350
   350gr @ 2100
   405gr @ 2000
 
  Check out Hodgdon's 45/70 lever action load data for these bullet weights:
    300gr @ 2424
    350gr @ 2151
    400gr(no 405gr) @ 2002
