    Odd that it's mod/mod. Honing out a choke might change your pattern center if diy. Better to cut it down to your preferred length above 18" and have cyl/cyl on that Savage. My opinion only. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk

    A piece of drill rod would probably work well. If you have a numbered drill set, you could use that as a gauge.

    I would like a 95 CB in .450 Marlin because it's the style and chambering I like best, this is not a cut down of the revered 45-70 Govt cartridge. We wouldn't be here without it. Best, Thomas. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk

    Good on you Rev. Sounds like you're a great pal as well. Dad is 87 and still quite active and about once a month he throws a soup can off the back porch, ventilates it with his 2-1/2" M66, then reloads it and puts it back on top the china cabinet....

    Unless it has a large chamber I should be able to load ammo with 7.62x39 dies. I have loaded 7.63x39 and 7.62x54 before with just .32 H&R dies to neck size and seat bullets. Lots of ways to skin cats. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk

    Because of case strenth limitations hot rodding a 45-70 in ANY action is ill advised. The original pressure loads will kill anything big enough to die. If you want more, go to .450 Marlin, then .458 Win, then .460 Wby, 50 BMG. Sent from my...
