Updates on the low recoil 45/70 short range load

3

On Saturday I took the low recoil offhand shooting cartridges to the range for some testing. Shot the rifle from a sandbag, and it proved quite accurate at 50 m, with managable recoil. At 100 it was poor against my long range cartridges, but at 50 m the bullets hit the same hole. On Sunday we had a 50 m offhand BPCR match that I shot with these BPCR cartridges (34 gr 3Fg Swiss, corn meal filler, cardboard wad, .458″ 405 Grain Lyman bullet, soft Minié lube, no crimp). The first 5 shots went high, but in a tight group. After some sight adjustment I could hit the 10 five times, scoring 95 in the end.  I think I’ll keep this load.

Shooting the Pedersoli High Wall rifle

highwall001John Moses Browning’s first rifle patent. One of the strongest and most reliable single shot designs of all times. 100 m tests.

It’s been 4 years now that the High Wall rifles, originally designed by John Moses Browning in 1878-79 and produced by Winchester from 1885 to 1920 became a member of the Pedersoli family. We offer these rifles in two varations and two calibers: Sporting and Classic vesrions in 38-55 and 45/70 calibers. Here is the 100 m test of the 45/70 version.
