    I drove up the mountain to see the fine logging job going on. Well over a hundred loads of logs sitting on the decks ready to be hauled. Fire danger is now greatly reduced, hope they finish the section soon. Thought about burning a pile of old...

    I'm betting it's a 50-70, which is a good thing in my opinion. I do have a friend who has converted many old movie guns with bad barrels to .50-70.

    I usually loaded mine down to .45-70 levels. With Rugers, you may want to check if it was a model where the bolt locks when on safety, or not. I had a .338 WM that didn't, and found when in rough brushy terrain, the bolt could be pulled open...
