    I'd like some opinions from those who have owned this rifle.

    H&R Buffalo Classic Rifle 45-70 Government

    I'm mainly interested in the action strength and overall sturdiness.

    I also would like to know about that Williams receiver sight, it doesn't look like it would offer much in elevation. Would it have enough elevation to take a subsonic load out to 400 yards?

    I have another question that is more reloading specific... how fast can one push a hard-cast bullet?

    Thanks in advance!

    I own two of them. Great rifles one I use for cowboy action shooting the other hunting. 32 inch bbl w I'll handle any round you wish to use. Mine are scoped. 250 grain Barnes makes excellent hunting round. At around 2300 ft per sec.

    I found a fix for that problem... it seems to have to do with actions not fitted with specific barrels at the factory.

    BARREL FITTING FOR THE NOVICE

    Hopefully that issue will not show-up with a new rifle. :/

    Thanks for the heads-up!
