    henry tech support was adamant that all h015 barrels are externally the same except for their bore and chamber ream dimensions. i guess that's gonna need real world vetting. can anyone with a h015-4570 accurately measure the muzzle and breech...

    henry tech support said the external barrel dimensions for all of their h015 series are the same. if so, whether a .223 or .45-70, only the bore would be different. if this is true, then that would account for the incremental decrease in the...

    henry tech support sez all the h015 single shot rifles have the same exterior dimension barrels, no matter whether it's .223 or .45-70 chamber and bore ream. that fact is borne out by the guns weights listed for each of these rifle cartridge...

    fwiw, on the henry site the spex on their s/s iron mounted rifles decreases as the bores increase. i'll call uncle henry up tomorrow to see if the barrels on these guns have the same outside dimensions.

    interesting. the .223 version weighs over 7lbs and the .45-70 version weighs under 7lbs, how did the big bore contribute to lost total weight?

    no modification to the gun will be required. it'll work just fine for PPB cartridges ... or lubed bullet cartridges. you didn't mention the powder you'd use, i hope it's real black powder. ;)

    the redding t-7 is the T-REX of turret presses, had one, shouldn't have sold it. that said, not a fan on on-press powder measures if real accuracy in dropped powder weights is desired. better doing that off-press, as i do with a harrell's culver.

    yes, i knew that might be a concern with brass that's been reformed from about the waist up. i ordered the .45-70 case holder for new or full length sized brass. if it doesn't work out i'll see about getting a custom wilson case holder.
