    Use a mangum primer with about 10grs of GOEX 4FG black under the bullseye!

    I think I'd feel safer watching that via a satellite feed............from a different continent.

    I spent the day at my club's rifle range Wednesday testing 45-70 loads off the bench, 90 rounds in a couple hours was enough for me, the first 30 were fairly stout, and I was glad when they were gone. I want power but I'm not into pain, so I'll probably keep things fairly mild, a home-cast 425-grain boolit at around 1300 fps. I'm not likely to encounter any bears around here, and that load will take down anything I'm liable to see from a coyote to a Buick.

    I used a strap-on pad for the hotter loads, and I may mount a Limbsaver on the 1895SS if I'm getting good accuracy with the hotter loads. If not, why bother shooting them?

    BTW, his name is George.

    When I take my 45/70 1895GG to the range, I also take a zip up life jacket. It's amazing the amount of recoil a life jacket absorbs when you shoot off the bench. I sometimes cheat and bring a taller rifle rest made out of 6x6 and 2x8s covered with foam rubber.
    Getting a little higher off the bench, means you can shoot a 460 Weatherby w/o too much pain.
    (Changes the angle of force...)

    Nobody notices recoil when they are staring thru the sights at game.

    I'd never thought of a zip up life jacket. It makes a lot of sense though, they have a lot of padding.
    Thanks for the tip.
