  1. Wound up getting the CVA Hunter i 45-70. It shoots well. Ran through a bunch of mid range Loads plinking. Lot of fun and not much kick compared yo a Ruger Number One. Very pleased. May buy morr of these if they expand the caliber choices.
  2. Yep, I have plinked with 375 HH, 458WM and 300 Weatherby. I don’t even hunt. I just love to shoot.
  3. Oh no, seen that done, I love the 45-70, especially since I discovered 5744 powder
  4. Yeah, I'm with ya on the mild loads. I have had several Ruger #1's and Marlins in 45-70. The Rugers were too light weight and were painful even with light loads. I had a 28" Marlin Cowboy and sold it in a moment of weakness. I have also had the Guide gun and standard over the years. I want to get another lever, probably a 1886 Winchester knock off, but in the mean time I saw how cheap the CVA's were. I should settle on the Hunter but the extra weight of the Scout plus being SS, really looks like it might be more shootable. I plan to use a scope so sights are not an issue. I considered the He
  5. Really been thinking about one of these in 45-70 ever since they came out. Looks like a 8 pound rifle with a 25” bbl. anybody tried one? I’ve got lots of 45-70 brass, bullet molds, bullets etc. need a gun to go with it but don’t want to break the bank.
  6. Just wanted to say hi...I have taken a pretty long hiatus. Joined back in 2008 and used to get in the site a lot. Just got busy and drifted away. I really need to get back in the swing of things. i love to shoot, do not hunt anymore. Been reloading for 38 years and casting nearly as long, though have not done much in the few years. Really looking to get into powder coating, I could ramble on and on. Glockster157 Nashville/Ashland City/Joelton
  7. I built a Khyber from a Romy G kit. I used a Russian side folder AK74 butt stock and trunion. Lucky for me the barrel was still intact. Shoots great. I haven't refinished it yet.....since most real Kyber Pass rifles look like they were drug down the road behind a truck for a couple of miles I am thinking of leaving it raw....at least for a while.

  9. The phrase is "I could NOT care less". As if you could care less then you care. On the reloading end, I too want to know what this load is. There is no way to load that round for that price without casting and then you have to add in the time. Something I do not seem to have anymore even though I cast and reload.
  10. My goodness, has no one read about Elmer Keith the father of the 44 magnum.....I did intensive reloading study of the 44 magnum and Keith was right. 2400 is the best powder for magnum loads for the standard bullet weights.For heavy bullets over 250 grains H110/w296 (same powder)w/mag primers may work well according to the gun mags but I have not tried them. I did try Mag primers with standard loads and 2400 and Keith was right. I got much better consistency with standard primers...the old guy knew what he was writing about. If you want a good load use 21 to 22 grains of 2400 with a WW standard
  11. Recently picked up a used Old Army and I have been trying different powders. Between 3F, Pyrodex P and RS, Goex has done the best according to my chrono. My question is what good loads, tricks, special info, etc, has anyone have for this extremely strong BP pistol?
  12. If you are building a pistol then no need for paper. If you want a SBR then post this question in the NFA section of TGO
  13. Typically pre model 10's made from 48-52 have a C serial number. I would say post 52 to 59 with an S SN. Value in 95 to 98% would be 350 to 450. There are millions of these guns out there in sock drawers in exc condition.
