I want one for those, but I do not think my shoulder wants it.

Nice rifle.

I think my 1895 LTD V has a 24" barrel, it's really not that bad... it certainly weighs less than my Browning 1886 SRC did.

I hadn't shot a .45-70 in about 12 years, after I sold my Browning to fund my Socom16. After I got my Marlin, I just loaded up some 350grn JSP's using data from the Browning... Jeepers! I'd forgotten how much they kick. I bought the Marlin for lead bullets, and loaded some 405grn cast over what I thought would be a sedate loading of different powders (IMRs 3031, 4895, 4064) and that was too much, too. I'm down to AA5744 and IMR4198 and cast 350's...

I suppose it won’t be to bad if you shot it in the kneeling position so that when your body is moving back the felt recoil is less.
Shooting it from a bench or prone will definitely kick more.

A 375Win is an option.

That’s a nice one Polack

Nothing like shooting a 45-70 completely naked.

I put a few rounds thru my 7 lb Henry last week. Shot a few standing and several from a bench. The recoil was less than I expected.

Better call ahead to reserve a date to get your shoulder popped back in to place.
