    ideal for 30/30 - dont think you can download it safely check the data on that - not ideal for 22/250 but will work (win 760 much better in that case)

    I havent shopped for brass for a couple years - likely I am behind the times on availability - maybe our LGS knows his customer base and is paying attention to their needs ?

    FWIW for slow shooting the tang sight proly better but they get in the way of your grip out in the field (hunting) the receiver mounted sight wins that race. You might be surprised at the quality of shooting you can do with a really coarse rear...

    yep ! they definitely done that wrong. If I was getting a Rossi - I would buy a 44mag - get the chamber recut to 44/40 - (a clever gunsmith might even be able to do that by hand without pulling the barrel) - the 44mag chamber would be a bit...
