    I had the forerunner to that rifle. it was the shakri in .45-70. bought it new for $65. it shot every thing 500,405 and 350 gr. bullets. but at 5 lbs. the recoil was brutal. even with the 350 gr. so it went down the road.

    how bad is the bulged spot? is it really blowed out or just a bump. just a bump it is not going to get worse. if it is that week then a rebore will not make it stronger. I have shot bulged barrels with no problems.
