Default Black powder fun with Winchester's 1886 Extra Light

I got out to the range recently with Winchester's Model 1886 Extra Light .45-70 rifle to have some fun with black powder .45-70 cartridges.

I like this rifle. It is beautiful and very well balanced, but the action is not as smooth as nineteenth century 1886s, due in large part to all the lawyer parts.
