Default Winchester 45 - 70

Took my first deer with the - been in the family forever - Winchester 45 - 70. Was about 12 years old & the ancient ammunition had been in & out so many times, the slugs were inching their way back into the brass. Still hit like a freight train. There was also another Winchester in the family, but a larger caliber. Been many years. Anyone know the larger caliber? Was there a Winchester 50 - 110. Many years ago & long gone. Every family has their SOBs.

The 1886 was offered in 50-110. They were produced in limited numbers for about 30 years.
