My Beretta 45-90 with 26 inch barrels:

Regulated to group 350 grain NF in a tight group at 100 yards. MV around 2200 fps.

Years ago, I asked two gun makers about extending the chambers of a Baikal 45-70 to 45-90; Both said no, and do not shoot hot loads in the Baikal. I did as recommended.

I got lucky this past weekend , I stopped in a pawn shop and seen this in a glass case and asked if it was a 410 , he said it was a double rifle in 30:06 , I grabbed it !!!!!!!
Please can you post a picture Chris, and one of the underside of the action?

Yes they aren't pretty but they are built like a brick outhouse. For the price they are it could always be restocked in a better grade of timber to make it look better and fit better and still be a good double for a lot less than 4 grand.
45-90 sounds better to me, but I ain't normal.

You, not Normal? That accounts for many of us, I believe

I'd like to have them. $125 for the 100 cases, don't want the smashed ones.

I am in Sonoita, AZ
