Default 45-70

I have an NEF 45-70 rifle and am very pleased with it.I can also change it to .223 Rem by replacing the barrel and stock .Going from big cartridge to small is a versatile part of the set up.I also hand load for all my firearms .Really pays off especially with the 45-70 cartridge.I cast bullet for most of my shooting irons also .I did not know the NEF 45-70 was hard to get .I have been trying to stock up on bullet molds and can find them on e- bay if I am lucky.

I'll just stick with my Ruger No.1 in 45-70.

Default H&r buffalo classic

Just picked one up in 38-55 with target sites. It has a 3.5 pound trigger that is just like breaking a glass rod. Have just ordered a Malcolm 6 power scope and mounts. The scope is some 28" long but will continue the classic look of a target rifle. So far with reloads it shoots about 2.5" at 100 yards. This is just one fun gun to work with...

After getting all of the parts together to correctly mount the Malcolm scope the gun is now with the smith. Current wait time is 7 weeks. This is ok by me as i'm retired and this will give me ti,e to finish up other projects such as what to do with a shoot out remington model 722 in .222. This was my first ever gun purchase and i still have the orignal 10x scope and mounts. Plan is to do it up right but just can't secide on the calibre yet. Ah the problems that old aage brings us...
