it shouldn't be a problem if it was manufactured correctlyi would not make a big deal out of not being CRF, keep your rifle clean and use good ammo that was checked for feeding before the hunt. by the way what to you call a double barreled rifle, fumble fingers feed. he,he.
That will hurt on both ends. Hope you have a nice pad on it. The Brownings are nice rifles.55k psi....for real?
My Browning M71 should be back from the 'smith real soon...punched out to .348 Ackley Improved.
250gr at 2,500 (24" barrel) might be realized. I was safely shooting them at 2,300 from the standard configuration.
Depends on how you load it of course. The rifle has a crescent butt so it can get wicked with heavier bullets at higher velocities. I use a home made shoulder pad made from an old pair of jeans with sewn in baffles and filled with sand. That tames those sharp edges. Hodgdon 50 Alaskan load data is what I've used. The 50 Alaskan and 50-110 WCF are the same case (2.1" vs. 2.4") and interchange much like a .38 Special and .357 Mag does in a handgun. My rifle has a 26" barrel so it gets a bit more velocity than the 22" barrel used in Hodgdon's data. You can drive 500 gr. bullets over 2000 fps at only 35,000 CUP. My main two loads are 325gr. cast bullet at 2000 fps or a 475gr. cast bullet at 1850 fps. There's a guy on The Reloaders Network and youtube who goes by the name Leverguns 50. He has a Winchester 1886 tang safety reproduction converted to 50-110 WCF and he loads up to around 48K-50K psi. He easily duplicates or exceeds .458 Win Mag ballistics.how's the recoil with it
That's one of his videos I embedded in a post above.There's a guy on The Reloaders Network and youtube who goes by the name Leverguns 50.

That is a project I have been interested in getting into for some time myself, but it is a lot harder to find anyone who can do it in Canada. If I was in the US and was using Turnbull, therefore getting resupplies of stuff like properly marked brass would not require a lawyer , I would be interested in the 470 as it completes the loop by having a bullet of sufficient sectional density, weight, and pushed at sufficient velocity, according to the commonly accepted principles.Have a m71 being built by Turnbull now to 50-110. Planning on loads making it quite the stopper and bringing it overseas in 2023
