  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 Henry, but the weight of the CVA plus lower cost has it ahead in my mind...just want to plink anyways.
  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. What is it? ADL....BDL, Where is it? What you looking to trade for? Been looking or an 06
  8. There is a gun show this weekend at the Nashville Fair grounds. 
  9. I picked up a SW 4566TSW and I need some extra mags......preferably around Nashville. Only interested in SW factory mags.    bbse@comcast.net
  10. I have an old Sears model 2A (Winchester 141) 14 shot bolt action butt feed........every time I think of selling it I have to think WHY? It is better to keep it as I could never replace it for what I could sell it for!
