I just couldn't be left out on this one. I've had my 1886 EL for about 3 months and I still feel like a kid on Christmas morning every time I pick it up. I could have bought a couple of Marlins for what I paid but I have no regrets. Being new to the 45-70, recoil was a worry til I actually shot it. I have loaded 300gr cast very stoutly and it's really no big deal. 405gr cast get my attention with moderate loads.
This gun is smooth, beautiful, and plenty accurate. My only difficulty is in loading the Speer 400 since the bullet hits the lands fairly hard and I can't get a collet for my RCBS case trimmer to accept the case to cut it back. So, I have a full box of big bullets I can't use. Any suggestions?
