Is the 35 Newton case about the same as the 375 Ruger case?
I do know that a lot of folks use the 375 Ruger to form their 35 Newtons.
308 carbine of any kind, never owned a 308.
Marlin 1895 in 45-70 (stainless)
Browning falling block in any caliber
Ruger #1 in 35 Whelen
I picked up a Ruger No 1 in 45/70 about 10 years ago. It rekindled my love of hunting. 3 mulies, a black bear, a moose and whitetail were all uncle and fun.
It’s worth a shot! I’ve got my eye on a few German drillings right now from the 30’s that seem to be at a pretty reasonable price.
Also always wanted a Browning twelvette.
.25 Cal (25-06, 257, 25WSSM, etc)
28 Gauge (just acquired)
Winchester model 70 safari express in 404Jef with dies, lots of brass and bullets. Got a Montana Rifle Co. American Legends 06 with fancy Turkish walnut wood coming in March. I handled it at the SCI show and was immediately hooked.
I can't get on board with MRC and their version of the "African" rifle.
They stuck their toe in the water but didn't jump in.
PH action not available on all the DG rifles, no iron sights, no barrel band front sling swivel...a 458 Lott that weighs 6 lb, 15 oz. ?!?!
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.
do not go for a 45 cal case longer than 2 7/8" in your shiloh.
the 3 1/4" case was in fact never a sharps chambering, and is more trouble than it is worth for no gain.
if you are not using black powder but smokeless, the 45/70 will give enough recoil for comfort in a sharps, particularly the quigley, who's stock is not at all good for recoil.
interestingly shiloh offers as an alternative a period correct paper patch chamber for bullets patched to bore diameter as they were in the day.
I always wanted a 220 Swift and a 25/06 or 257 Weatherby. Use if such??? Very little as I have other calibers that will do much the same.
I have a22/250 that is close to the swift and 270s etc.
I simply don’t have the time to go hunting and at the moment with an almighty wet season all I could hunt would be frogs, toads, And snails!
Maybe something like this?
Krieghoff Hubertus with Schmidt & Bender 4 x 36.
Ferlach double with hammers in .450/400 3"
Well hopefully within the next year I’ll be getting a cz550 416rigby or 458lott. Probably gonna get the AHR #2 done on it. I’m not to concerned about upgrading the wood. Will be my first big bore to own. Have fired several.
english double in 450 3 1/4 nitro (heym would be ok too)
RIGBY RISING BITE IN 450 RIGBY WOULD BE NICE
8 X 68S built on a Win M70 action
I second that.
Such as this beautiful rifle.
