Nice big bores with nice wood. I have Ruger's 50th anniversary 45/70 No 1 and the 50th anniversary of the No 1 in 308. The 45/70 puts 3 in a single cluster at 100 yards. The 308 has been more picky, but I have found a few loads that keep it just over an inch.


Those 50th anniversary guns are nice!

Used to have one in .223 with a bull barrel, man it was a tack driver. Always wanted one in 45-70.

that 45/70 with its pet load will shoot groups in the .2s.
It will shoot nearly anything .5" My brother in law bought one on the same day and it shoots the same way.

My son-in-law has a full stock chambered in .270, been trying to get him to part with it for years.
