The first Ruger No.1 that I ever shot was a friend's 416Rigby
I fired it from a standing position I would not shoot that rifle from a bench.

Would be fun to shoot. Once, maybe twice. I bet the recoil is a beast, in a rifle it kicks pretty good. I have shot a .454 Casull, that was interesting.

I can confirm the recoil is a BEAST!! I was only brave/stupid enough for two shots. After that, I stuck to shooting my friends other arsenal (Wilson Combat 1911-45, HK-9mm, Sig 226 - 40, and my trusty 226-9mm).

I never got around to asking my friend why, but I guess the reason for having that 45-70 is just to shoot it as a fun-gun. Just so you can say, "yep check that box." I will ask him to see if he has other purposes for it.

I will almost try anything,when it comes to shootin, .454 casull in a handgun is about all I want, but 45-70? I dunno.

This is my 45-70, and it will shake your teeth loose.

Man some of you boys need to man up a little. 45-70 in a pistol that is not too bad. I let you shoot my 500 with some of my special HOT loads.

I would be ascairt to shoot a 45-70 Remlin. I got one of the Marlin ones myself. Did not really know what I was buying. There was a one day delay with my FFL due to high volume, when I bought some bullets for it, I was like, WTF? I was thinking just a little bigger than 30-06...

But, if large carnivores come to Louisiana, I am set.
