    The utter stupidity continues ! The Browning and modern Winchester High Walls are chambered in high intensity (60,000 psi) cartridges but are gonna blow up with any published 45-70 load. Is anyone that dumb ? Yes I guess so reading the posts...

    Reading primers is like reading tea leaves. A CURRENT load book and a Chronograph will tell you what is going on better than anything but a pressure barrel.

    Hawks said: "The owners of modern single shot rifles, such as the Ruger No. 1 and Browning 1885 High Wall, can safely take the pressure limit even higher, and can use 500 grain bullets. The result is loads that tread on the heels of some African...

    Still going ???? I fotgot to mention that this guy Mike at Hodgden either: 1. Misquoted OR 2. DNS about Modern Winchester High Walls. I'd tend to believe the former until I see a letter on Hodgen LH, written and signed by him.

    Rechambered rimfires is why Sierra still makes .223 bullets. The first 22 Hornet was built on a M-1 22 rimfire Springfield by the "four Ws". Cast boolits will work just fine.

    Correct ! 375 H&H is one the best cast boolit cartridges and will kill anything in NA with them.

    It's a decent old scope if the lenses are not delaminated. It was the first "budget" scope with an AO. They are easy to work on and clean, just don't break the real crosshairs. IN ANIB condition they will bring $150.00, an average used one $50.00....
